Shaanxi University of Science and Technology
|This article does not cite any references or sources. (April 2010)|
The university was founded in Beijing in 1958 as Beijing Institute of Light Industry.
It later moved to Xianyang, Shaanxi, and was renamed Northwest Institute of Light Industry， in 1970. The university was one of the first 88 national key universities designated by the central government.
In 2002, the university took on its current name, Shaanxi University of Science & Technology.
After 2004, it opened a new campus in Xi'an.

SUST is well known for its light industry education, which includes four national and provincial key disciplines: paper-making engineering, materials engineering, leather-making engineering, and packaging engineering. For more detailed information, go to the Research page about specific projects and the Academics page, which describes each college.
In conjunction with the founding of SUST in 1958, the paper-making engineering discipline is “a key discipline of Shaanxi province.” At present, it focuses on the research and development of paper-making technologies. SUST is consistently developing new products, innovating new paper-making processes and achieving “green production” goals. Leading faculty and scientific achievements have made this field a well-known SUST symbol.
SUST has received national recognition in connection with materials engineering. In this field, three SUST faculty members have received awards from the National Outstanding Youth Fund and the New Century Talents. In recent years, SUST has been a part of more than 20 national projects, and more than 50 provincial and ministerial and bureau-level projects. Furthermore, SUST has written more than 300 academic and research essays in the field, in which over 60 are indexed by the SCI (Science Citation Index) and the EI (Engineering Index); more than 25 monographic textbooks have been published and 60 achievements have been practically applied, bringing in funding opportunities and prestige.
Leather Chemistry and Engineering
Closely related to the life sciences, a multidisciplinary and dynamic field at SUST, leather production (including fur manufacturing and its variety of functions and uses), research and development are key disciplines at SUST. Upon graduation, students are qualified in manufacturing management, technological design, scientific research, as well as technical supervision in exports.
SUST was the first university in China to implement packaging engineering as a major at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. SUST was also the first to carry out research in CAD packaging and digital packaging. Equipped with flexible facilities and advanced testing center in Northwest China, SUST is acknowledged as the trusted and professional packaging brand in Shaanxi province and throughout the country.
SUST attaches a lot of importance on placing its technologies into practical use across a wide range of business disciplines. Specifically, five branches have been most successful in applying their technology in various fields.
