HUAZHONG UNIVERSITY OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY

Since 1952 when Huazhong Institute of Technlology was founded, or even further back, when the German doctor Erich Paulun founded the German Medical School (later as Tongji Medical University ) in Shanghai in 1907, HUST has never stopped its journey to excellence. The past 50 years has witnessed how HUST rapidly developed itself into a dynamic, ambitious and innovative comprehensive research university.

The Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST) is a national key university directly under the administration of the Ministry of Education of P. R. China, and is among the first Universities joining the national “211 Project” and “985 Project”. It was founded on May 26, 2000 as a result of the merger of the former Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Tongji Medical University and Wuhan Urban Construction Institute.

At present, the University has eleven disciplines: engineering, medicine, management, science, philosophy, economics, law, education, literature, history and agriculture, offering a variety of degree programs, including 86 undergraduate programs, 256 graduate programs, 181 PhD programs. There are 31 post-doctoral research centers, 7 national key disciplines, 15 national key subdisciplines.

HUST covers an area of over 1,153 acres with picturesque environment, elegant surroundings and has 72% greenery coverage, which has been honored as the “University in the Forest”. It offers its students and staff first-class logistic service, efficient network service and abundant library resources. HUST has also entered into partnerships with more than 100 renowned universities and research institutions. Annually over 100 famous scholars and experts come to visit HUST and give lectures.
