RCSTEP,Zhejiang University

1. Management Science and Engineering (Development and Planning of Science, Technology & Education)

2. Education Economy and Education Management


In 1986, “Industry Management Engineering (Science, Technology and Education Management Engineering)” doctoral degree program was built, later, the title of the program was changed as “Management Science and Engineering”. Since 1998, the doctoral program began to recruit doctors by name of “Development and Planning of Science, Technology & Education”. In 2003, another doctoral degree program of “Education Economy and Education Management” was offered. In 2005, as one of “The Strategy Research Base of the State Education Ministry”, the Research Center for Science, Technology and Education Policy (RCSTEP) of Zhejiang University was founded.



With science, technology and education policy as its research objects, the center undertakes an interdisciplinary research into the technological development and the reformation of higher education, provides consultation for the nation to facilitate the strategy of thriving China through science and education, and cultivates first-class interdisciplinary talents in the area of science and education policies. It is directly guided by the Science and Technology Committee of Education Ministry and undertakes the research tasks dispatched by relative bureaus. It is responsible for the consulting research programs of national ministries and commissions such as CAE, CAS, Ministry of Science and Technology, Development and Reform Commission. Other research projects are from the National Science Foundation, National Foundation of Social Science, National Education and Science Projecting Fund.
