Mex-X research Institute was established in 2007 by the joining of Shanghai Jiaotong University and the Shanghai Second Medical University. Med-X Research institute relies on a solid engineering and medical basis and is intersecting engineering and medical sciences. On the platform of Med-X Research Institute, several joint research centers were established with affiliated hospitals by taking advantage of clinics in medical researches. On April 8, 2011, the school of Biomedical Engineering was formally established based on integrating the scientific research and teaching resources of the Med-X Research Institute. The department of Biomedical Engineering became the strategy of Shanghai Jiaotong University to tackle major human diseases for a healthier China.

In response to the demand for talents in the medical and health industry, based on the characteristics of the biomedical engineering disciplines the college was linked with related enterprises and industries. As a result, Shanghai Jiaotong University advanced medical Imaging Technology and Research Institute, Medical Robotic Research Institute, and other innovative training platforms were established. Shanghai Jiaotong Medical Imaging practical bases were established for postgraduates with professional Technological degrees.

Shanghai Medical Device testing Institute is a student-centered Institute that adds great importance to the cultivation of graduate students’ practical abilities.

At present, there are 83 full-time teachers, including 2 academicians, 13 national-level leading talent candidates, 335 doctoral students, 180 master students, and 20 graduate international students.
