University of Science and Technology of China - Description

The University of Science and Technology of China is a new type of university established by the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) after the founding of the New China. The establishment of the University is aimed at fostering high-level personnel of science and technology absolutely necessary for the development of the national economy, national defense construction, and education in science and technology. The University was founded in Beijing in September of 1958. Mr. Guo Moruo is the first president of the University. The establishment was hailed as "A Major Event in the History of Chinese Education and Science". CAS has supported the University by combining most of its Institutes with the departments of the University. CAS has pooled the entire strength of its faculty and its advantage in science and technology for the development of the University. USTC is listed in the top 16 national key universities by the Central Committee of the CCP, becoming the youngest national key university. In the beginning of 1970, USTC was moved to Hefei, the capital of Anhui Province.

Description of University of Science and Technology of China

The University of Science and Technology of China (USTC), founded in Beijing in 1958, is affiliated with the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). The Chinese Academy of Sciences has supported USTC by “Pooling efforts of CAS for university development and integrating its institutes with the University’s corresponding departments”. From the beginning, USTC was established with the aim of developing high-level personnel in science and technology with broad-based scientific knowledge. Beginning in 1970, USTC was moved to Hefei, the capital of Anhui Province. Since 1978, USTC has enjoyed the nation’s top priority in construction projects, and launched a series of reform initiatives. USTC has persisted in the mission of “Build a Global University and Educate the Brilliant of the World”. Additionally, the core value is “Commit to Quality, Strive for Excellence, and Serve the Country through Innovation and Excellence”. In a Congratulatory Letter sent to USTC commemorating the 50th Anniversary Celebration in September 2008, President Hu Jintao expressed the hope that USTC would continue to carry out reforms in teaching and scientific research, building the university into a world-class research and educational institution for educating more and better innovative talents.
