The Innovation Center, founded in June 2014, is led by SJTU-ParisTech’s Youth League Committee and currently has six members. Its main function is to organize events using its offices, such as innovation contests, courses, WeChat public subscription accounts, salons, and so on, in order to strengthen connections with other schools and companies, and provide a better platform of learning and communication for those fans of innovation inside the school.

Main topics of the innovation courses include extra-curricular practical innovation skills, providing students with a foundation for future innovative activities, study, and even work.
Current lectures include C language basic training, an Android software developing workshop, SolidWorks workshop, a project experience sharing event, etc. Students actively participated and benefited from much of this.
