In 2002, with approval of the Ministry of Education of the People's Republic of China, it was renamed Shandong Jiaotong University.
SDJTU now has over 20,000 full-time students and 1,300 staff members, and its campus covers more than 147 hectars, while the floorage occupies about 390,000 square meters. The university's fixed assets amount to 154 million Yuan, and the library area is 21,000 square meters, with a collection of 1.53 million volumes.
SDJTU consists of 13 schools, including School of Maritime, School of Automobile Engineering, School of Transportation & Logistics Engineering, School of Civil Engineering, School of Material Science & Electric Engineering, School of Mechanical Engineering, School of Management, School of Finance & Economics, School of Foreign Studies, School of Humanity & Law, School of Science, Northern International School, as well as 4 teaching sections such as Social Science Teaching Department, Physical Education Teaching Department, Continual Education College, and Vocational Technical College. The university has developed into a multi-discipline higher education institution, and offers over 50 Bachelor Degree programs spreading in 6 discipline categories (engineering, science, management, economics, law, and arts). The university was authorized to cultivate professional degree graduate students. Currently, two professional master degree programs in the fields of Traffic & Transportation Engineering and Naval Architecture & Marine Engineering face for overseas recruit students. Now the university has become the only institution that mainly fosters talents on water and land transportation majors. During the past 59 years, the school has fostered 80, 000 graduates and trained 60,000 managers and engineering technicians for transportation industry.
