Since the foundation in 2006 SPT has insisted on that “talents” is the core, “science” is the carrier, ‘team” is the guarantee of subject development. At present, there are 10 professors, 25 Ph. D among SPT staff in which the average age is 38.5 years old. During the secondary management implementation, the staff operational and occupational quality are improved and a vital and steady faculty is formed via the tutorial system of the younger staff, seminars held by experts from different areas, practice to enterprises, training course to other provinces or other countries and so on. About 10 teachers have won the glory titled “National Prominent Teacher”, “New Century National Hundred, Thousand and Ten Thousand Talent Project”, “Shanghai Outstanding Talent”, “Shanghai Excellent Chenguang Scholar”, “Shanghai 51 Labor Medal”, “Bao Steel Prominent Staff”, “Shanghai Cultivate talents Scholar”, “Shanghai Science and Technology Innovation Talent”, “Committee member of Education Institutions of Higher Education Light Chemical Engineering of National Ministry”, and so forth.
There are three majors of biology engineering, food science and engineering and light chemical engineering in SPT, and two subjects of perfume and aroma technology, food science and engineering. “Perfume and Aroma Technology” is the school key subject of SIT and Shanghai. “Food Science and Engineering” is the school constructing subject. At present, there are approximately 1000 undergraduate students, 40 graduate students in SPT. A lot of national, provincial projects have been achieved. Many of them have been awarded and have been carried out in industrialized manufacture. “Novel Technology Study of Synthesis on natural flavor of meat flavor” won the second prize of Shanghai Science and Technology in 2006, which has applied in the industrialization of the famous corporation with “Henan Shuanghui Group”, “Shenzhen Boton Flavours & Fragrances Co., Ltd”, “ Hebei Lida Chemical Co., Ltd”. The net profit is approximately 1 billion RMB. “100 tons furaneol manufacture technology” won the second prize of China Petroleum Science and Technology Association, which has applied in the industrialization of the famous flavour company and the annual profit is 3 billions RMB. Besides, “Nutrition characteristic and distillation process technology of Buckwheat peptide food” and “Novel production exploitation and application of vanillin” have gained the third prize of Shanghai Science and Technology in 2007 and 2008 respectively.
The number of research projects, scientific research funds, authorized patents and papers has climbed rapidly form 2006-2010. More than 200 papers and books have been published including 181 core periodicals, 32 international academic conference papers, 22 papers indexed by SCI or EI, 91 national invention patents. The current scientific projects include one item of 2009 State Key Development Program of Basic Research of China, 2 items of Natural Science Foundation of China, 1 item of Natural Science Foundation of China for younger scholar, 36 items of Expo Foundation of Ministry of Science and Technology of China, Shanghai Science and Technology Commission Foundation, Shanghai Natural Scientific Foundation, Shanghai Shuguang Foundation, etc..
