Nanjing University of Technology (NJUT; Chinese: 南京工业大学; pinyin: Nánjīng Gōngyè Dàxúe), colloquially known as Nan Gong Da (or Nangongda, 南工大), is a university located in Nanjing, Jiangsu Province, China. The university specializes in engineering. English language courses are compulsory.

History[edit]

Nanjing Tech University has a history of more than one hundred years as a cradle of education. It is a key institution of higher learning to be constructed in Jiangsu Province, and one of the first group of institutions of higher learning approved by the Chinese Ministry of Education for the training of "Excellent Engineers". Nanjing University of Technology was established by merging the former Nanjing University of Chemical Technology and the former Nanjing Institute of Architecture and Civil Engineering in May 2001. The origin of Nanjing University of Chemical Technology can be traced back to Sanjiang Normal School established in 1902, which later changed to be National Central University in 1928 and Nanjing University in 1949, whose engineering departments formed Nanjing Institute of Technology by merging related engineering departments of several other universities in 1952 and then the chemical engineering department became Nanjing College of Chemical Technology in 1958 and renamed Nanjing University of Chemical Technology in 1995, and the origin of Nanjing Institute of Architecture and Civil Engineering was formerly the Department of Mechanics of Tongji Medical and Engineering School established in 1915. Nanjing University of Technology became a comprehensive university with engineering as its focus. Since the beginning of the year 2014, Nanjing University of Technology is renamed as Nanjing Tech University with the new website: www.njtech.edu.cn
