“We firmly believe that the establishment of this demonstration center will take Shanghai Jiaotong University’s research capabilities to new heights,” said Dr. Wang Hai, the Associate Dean and the Professor of the School of Aeronautics and Astronautics at SJTU. “ It will also allow more industry experts, academics, and colleagues access to MTS’ high-quality products.”

MTS Systems Corp., a supplier of test systems and position sensors, finalized an agreement with Shanghai Jiaotong University (SJTU) to establish an Aerospace Structural Strength Testing Demo Site at SJTU in Shanghai. Under this collaboration, SJTU's School of Aeronautics and Astronautics will use MTS' advanced structural testing technologies for aerospace structural strength testing and various other R&D activities. The advanced lab will also serve as a site for the education, training, and exhibition of MTS testing technologies to MTS employees, customers, university staff, and students. MTS and SJTU intend to jointly develop annual training curriculum in the use of MTS equipment. Furthermore, the Demo Site will enable important international and domestic initiatives, including technical projects, joint papers, research, and development, to improve testing technology and methods, as well as providing suggestions for MTS Systems' enhancements.
