Why us

Harbin University of Science and Technology (HUST) is the largest province-owned engineering university in Heilongjiang Province, located in the Ice City of Harbin — a picturesque city in the northeast of China.


HUST was founded in the early 1950s. After half a century’s development it has become a multidisciplinary university whose discipline layout is featured with electromechanical engineering as its lead as well as an integration of science and engineering, economy, management, humanities, and law.


It boasts four campuses: East Campus, West Campus, South Campus, and North Campus in three districts: Daoli, Nangang and Dongli, covering over 1,275,000m2, with a total building area of more than 850,000m2, its fixed assets being ¥1.032 billion RMB. The library has a collection of 2.075 million books and about 4,900 Chinese and foreign journals and periodicals.


From 1996 to 2000 our university seized the opportunity of higher education system reform, and set up the talent cultivation system from bachelors to masters and from doctors to post-doctors. The school running layout focuses on undergraduate education, quickening postgraduate education, and steadily developing continual education. HUST now has 16 colleges, 5 teaching departments and 4 training centers, offering 45 bachelor-degree programs, 47 master-degree programs as well as 8 engineering master degrees, 2 first-rate doctor-degree programs, 13 secondary doctor-degree programs, 2 postdoctoral stations, 8 provincial key subjects, 10 provincial key specialties, 4 provincial key labs. So far the total number of students has reached 26,117 in varied categories, including Ph. D. students, postgraduates, undergraduates, junior college students, foreign students, etc. The total number of full-time teachers is 1,337, of whom 671 are associate professors or professors, one being a national academician.


For many years, to conform to national economy and social development and to take the advantage of talents, HUST has set up 45 research institutes guided by the strategy of emphasizing subject development, teaching and research. From 1996 to now, the university has undertaken over 1,951 state and provincial projects with 900 research results (183 winning prizes). We have won the second rate of 2001 State Technological Invention Award and the second rate of 2004 State Technological Progress Award. The university has published more than 5,770 academic papers, 386 books in special subjects. Insisting on opening to the outside, seizing the opportunity of reforming old industrial bases in the northeast of China, and following the course of manufacturing, learning and researching, HUST has set up bases of research result cultivation to transform the results into productive forces and cooperate with local governments.


The development of research has not only supported the building of subjects and enhanced the university’s academic level, but also contributed much to the economic construction of HeilongjiangProvince. HUST has won many honorable titles or prizes from the provincial government and HarbinCity for revitalizing economy and the city through science and technology.


The university has always been engaged in international academic exchanges and cooperation. It has established long-term friendly cooperation with many universities or research institutes in more than 10 countries. Substantial achievements have been made in regard to teaching and learning, scientific research and cultivation of talented personnel. HUST has jointly run school with the following foreign universities: Troy State University (America), Oriental New Mexican University, Pittsburg University, London City University (Britain), Novosibirsk State Technical University (Russia), Edith Cowan University (Australia), Chubu University (Japan), Capilano College (Canada), etc.


For more than half a century, HUST has kept up the practice of “Unity, Progress, Practicality and Creativity”, and has cultivated many excellent personnel for the country’s manufacturing industries and other positions. The graduates are well welcomed and praised for their qualities and capacity, many of whom have become the backbone in technical field or leadership in medium or large enterprises.
