Introduction[edit]

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

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.

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). 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.
