The history of GUET describes an attractive profile of steady growth and beneficent change. Founded in February 1960 by the First Ministry of Mechanical Industry of China, it was initially named “Guilin Mechanical Faculty”, and it was charged to train talent in the disciplines of Mechanics and Electronics.
Re-named “Guilin Institute of Electronic Technology” in 1980 by the Fourth Ministry of Mechanical Industry of China, it expanded its intake to include the recruiting of diploma program and undergraduate program students from all over China. The institute was governed by the Ministry of Electronic Industry of China from 1983.
In 1986, it was accredited to carry on postgraduate programs in the award of master’s degrees. By 2000, the university was governed and financed by the Ministry of Information Industry of China.
The new University was accredited to run doctoral programs in 2003, and three years later, in 2006, it was renamed “Guilin University of Electronic Technology”. This is the name by which it is currently known, and since March 2008, it has been governed jointly by the Guangxi Municipality Government and the Ministry of Information Industry of China.
Guilin University of Electronic Technology is a state university in the field of Information Technology, with a view to becoming a world-respected center of excellence in exploring and instilling knowledge in areas of electronic science and technology.
GUET’s mission is enshrined in the Chinese ex-President Mr. Jiang Zemin’s injunction: Training more qualified talents for the electronic industry. (Mr. Jiang Zemin visited Guilin University of Electronic Technology in November 1990)
It is located in Guilin, a world-famous tourist destination and historically cultural city (more than 2000 years), conveniently reaching Guangzhou, Shenzheng, Kunming, Changsha, Hong Kong, Wuhan and Macaw within one hour by air, and 40minutes to Yangshuo by bus.

It said the Li River curves around the mountains, just like the silk sash ballooning in the wind, while the mountains stand sharply in harmonious imitation of jade hairpins.

It also invites famous foreign scholars and political personages to be the part-time professors, honorary professors or guest professors.
