University of Science and Technology


A Brief Introduction

The University of Science and Technology Beijing (USTB) was founded in 1952 following the amalgamation of the best departments in related fields of five element universities as a result of a nationwide reorganization of the higher education system. Over half a century of remarkable growth, it has developed into one of the most influential key national universities in China. Its main focus is on engineering, but it maintains a balanced programme of science, management, humanities, economics and law. True to its motto 'Rigorous in Learning and Research and Venerating Practice', it pays close attention to the contributions which talented people can be expercted to make to social and economic development and has constructed its educational practice with a view to training highly qualified professionals.
