Cradle of Excellent Minds
The University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) traces its origins to 1958 when the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) established it in Beijing. It was founded under the goal to lead the development of cutting-edge technology of China in response to the increasingly fierce global competition. In 1970, USTC was strategically relocated and has been operating in Hefei, the capital city of Anhui Province. Ever since then, this prestigious research university keeps open arms for extraordinary talents across the globe. Now the university is home to 60,000 young gifted students, aspiring scholars and researchers as well as 3,500 distinguished faculty members.
Exceptional Achievements in Research and Education
With 23 schools offering majors including natural science and social science, USTC is abundant in exciting opportunities for students to discover for more.
The university houses two advanced national labs, the National Synchrotron Radiation Facility which is the first national lab in China. USTC is also the only university in China that is capable of building the Hefei National Laboratory for Physical Sciences at the Microscale. Remarkable progress has been made by USTC in fields such as, quantum manipulation, nanotechnology and high-temperature superconductivity.
USTC is dedicated to bridging the divide by promoting collaboration and building strategic relationship with world-class research universities and institutes.
In 2013, the signing ceremony of an agreement to reach a series of future collaborations among the C9 League, and the Association of American of Universities, the Australian Group of Eight (Go8), and the League of European Research Universities (LERU), took place in USTC.
Apart from it, international organizations such as the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) and the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) have all formed sustainable and strategic partnership with USTC. Meanwhile, the university has attracted prestigious research universities around the world including Oxford, Stanford and Princeton to develop collaborative relationship.
