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 [2][3][4][5] 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.
