Tongji University and UN Environmental Programmes have been in cooperation since 2002 and the UN Environment-Tongji Institute of Environment for Sustainable Development was jointly established in Shanghai. The Institute started Masters and Doctoral Degree Programmes in 2006. Since then there have been 525 students from 89 countries who have been studying in the programmes. The graduates of these programmes have gone on to work in different kinds of governmental departments at the national level, international organizations, and well-known companies, such as: the Chinese Ministry of Ecology and Environment, the French Ministry of Environment, the Ministry of Natural Resources of Ukraine, the Ministry of Environment of Romania, UN Environmental Progammes, Volvo Group, and the Chinese Academy of Science. We believe that with the guidance of the Belt and Road Initiatie, and with the support of the Ministry of Commerce, the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Science and Technology, China Scholarship of Council and United Nations Environment Programme, Tongji University will continue to cultivate more talented individuals from around the world and support those talents in making contributions in their respective fields.
