Zhejiang University of Technology (Chinese: 浙江工业大学; pinyin: Zhèjiāng Gōngyè Dàxúe) is located in the city of Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province. It is considered one of the top industrial universities in mainland China  and the second largest university in Zhejiang Province after the most comprehensive university - Zhejiang University.
Engineering, especially chemical and biological engineering, is its strongest element. During the 1980s it made an effort to become a comprehensive technological university instead of a technological college. It keeps a close and broad relationship to industry.
It is a typical technical university of the new generation in China. It followed the trend during the 1980s and 1990s of Chinese technical institutes changing from the soviet specialized style into a much more comprehensive style.
Although the history of Zhejiang University of Technology can be traced back to 1910, its independence (establishment) as a college was in 1953 as the school claims officially. It became a comprehensive technical university in 1993.

- Parts of the National Zhejiang University, (1910~1949)
- Hangzhou Chemical Engineering College (1953~)
