I am come from china
The University of Science and Technology of China is a new type university established by the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) after founding of New China. The establishment of the University aims at fostering high-level personnel of science and technology absolutely necessary for the development of national economy, defense construction, and education in science and technology. The University was founded in Beijing in September of 1958. Mr. Guo Moruo is the first president of the University. The establishment was hailed as “A Major Event in the History of Chinese Education and Science”. CAS has supported the University by combining most of its Institutes with the departments in USTC. CAS has pooled the entire strength of its faculty and its advantages in science and technology for University??s developing. USTC is listed in the top 16 national key universities by the Central Committee of CCP, and it has become a youngest national key university.
In the beginning of 1970, USTC was moved to Hefei, the capital of Anhui Province. Since 1978, USTC has initiated and implemented a series of open and reforming measures with a forward-looking sense and innovative spirit. The University is recovered from the Cultural Revolution and achieved rapid development thereafter. During the period of the 7th and the 8th National Five-year Plan, USTC has been one of the universities enjoying the nation’s priority construction funds.
Since the 1990s, USTC has taken the initiative of adapting to the necessity and challenge of the development of science and technology, education, and social economy. The University frequently deepens the reforms of teaching and scientific research, and makes structural adjustments. In 1995, USTC was approved by the Central Government as one of the first batch of universities obtaining the support of construction in the National 9th Five-year Plan and the “Project 211”. Since 1998, USTC takes an active part in the implementation of CAS “Knowledge Innovation Program”. In June of 1998, President Jiang Zeming inscribed the following words for the 40th anniversary of the University: “Facing the 21st Century, Building a First-class University, and Cultivating Top-level Talent”. His words make greater demands on USTC and create an orientation for USTC. In 1999, USTC was singled out as one of the 9 universities enjoying priority support from the nation’s “Plan of Vitalizing Education Action Geared to the 21st Century”, obtaining unified support and guidance from the CAS, the Ministry of Education, and Anhui Provincial Government. The Plan (Project 985) is aims at supporting the development of high-level universities in China. USTC will spare no effort in building the University into a moderate-scale, high-quality, reasonable-structured, high-level university by 2018, the 60th anniversary of USTC. Until then USTC will turn into an educational and research base in collaboration with CAS and other research institutions for the education of first-class talent possessing innovative capacity and modern knowledge structure. It will be a base with the capacity of knowledge and technology innovation. Since September of 2002, USTC has been implementing its “Project 211” construction during the 10th National Development Plan.
USTC Honorary President is Professor Zhou Guangzhao, Chairman of the China Association of Science and Technology, academician of the CAS. Party Secretary is Professor Guo Chuanjie. Professor Zhu Qingshi, academician of CAS and the Third World Academy of Sciences, chemist, is president of the University.
USTC consistently adheres to the school-running principle of pursuing the national interest and innovative pioneering. The University upholds the combination of science with technology, teaching with research, and theory with practice. In a short period, USTC has turned into a comprehensive national key university of science and technology, with emphasis on the forefront of advanced and new science technology. USTC also offers management studies involved in science and technology and the humanities. With the development of the University, USTC has gradually evolved into an excellent school with the spirit “Studying diligently, making progress both in study and development of moral character”. USTC has made distinguished achievements in talent fostering, scientific research and technology transfer, turning into an important base of high-qualified talent training and high-level scientific research for the nation. USTC has become a large-size scientific research base with the most comprehensive specialties within CAS. And the University is regarded by the Ministry of Science and Technology as one of the 4 universities with best scientific research performance in China. The University ranks among the best in the review of Chinese top universities by the US journal “Science” and French journal “Research”. The late Chinese leader Mr. Deng Xiaoping praised that USTC has been managing very well in possession of many talented young personnel.
