Shan-Tung Tu received his B.Eng degree in 1982 and Ph.D degree in 1988 from Nanjing Tech University. He is a Chair professor of Mechanical Engineering, East China University of Science and Technology. Prior to this, he has worked in Nanjing Tech University and East China University of Science and Technology as a professor and vice present, and a guest scientist to Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden.

Driven by the safety concern of the process and energy equipment, Professor Tu has been trying to develop knowledge in the area of high temperature structural integrity and engineering, including creep, fatigue fracture, structural integrity monitoring and design of high temperature equipment. He is an author of more than 300 papers and received a number of distinguished awards, including China National Science and Technology Progress Award, National Technology Invention Award, China Youth Science and Technology Award, ASME Best Paper Award and so on.He has been the honorary president of Chinese Pressure Vessel Institution (since 2010) and the honorary president of Chinese Materials Institution (since 2015) of China Mechanical Engineering Society, Chairman of China Structural Integrity Consortium, Chairman of Asian Oceanic Regional Committee of International Council for Pressure Vessel Technology, a member of reliability committee of IFToMM. He is currently an honorary professor of the University of Nottingham. He is also serving a number of journals as an associate editor or editorial board member, including Int J Pres Ves and Piping, Applied Energy, J of Materials Science and Technology, Fatigue and Fracture of Engineering Materials and Structures and so on.
