Xi'an Polytechnic University (Chinese: 西安工程大学; pinyin: Xī'ān Gōngchéng Dàxué) is a college located in Xi'an, in the Shaanxi province, China.

History[edit]

Xi'an Polytechnic University enjoys a long history which can be traced back to 1912 when it was the Weaving Division of the Beijing Higher Industrial School. The school was approved in 1978 to set up the Northwest Textile Institute, one of the three national institutions controlled directly by the national Ministry of Textiles. In 1998, control transferred to the Shaanxi Province Ministry of Education, and the name of the school was changed to Xi'an Polytechnic University in 2001.

XPU is a large-scale university with 10 colleges and 2 teaching departments, with over 24,000 students. There are 2 campuses, covering an area of 1,080,000 square meters.
