History[edit]

The university was originally conceived in 1948 as the Anshan Institute of Iron and Steel, (simplified Chinese: 鞍山钢铁学院; traditional Chinese: 鞍鋼院; pinyin: Ān Gāng Yuàn). [2]

In 1958, the university was established as Anshan Institute of Iron and Steel Technology (AIIST) and placed under the administration of the Ministry of Metallurgical Industry of the Chinese central government.

In 1994, the Anshan Advanced Vocational College was merged into AIIST.

In 2002, AIIST changed its name to Anshan University of Science and Technology (ASUST).

The university took on its current name, starting in 2006, when the Ministry of Education of the People's Republic of China approved the restructure of Anshan University of Science and Technology to University of Science and Technology Liaoning.
