University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (UESTC for short) is situated at Chengdu, the city of over a thousand-year-old cultural history in "the land of abundance".
As one of the seven earliest key universities in national defence, UESTC became one of the nation's key universities in 1960. Then, in 1997 it was included as one of the first universities into "Project 211", a project in China for developing 100 first-class universities and a number of key fields of research for the 21st century. In 2001, UESTC was admitted into the nation's Project 985, receiving special support for developing world-class universities and world-famous research-oriented universities. In 2017, the University was selected as one of “Double First-class" universities (Top 36).
In 2014, UESTC founded the Institute of Fundamental and Frontier Sciences, to strongly promote the development of fundamental research in such as Physics and Mathematics. School of Medicine was jointly established by UESTC and Sichuan Provincial People’s Hospital in 2013, and Sichuan Cancer Hospital & Institute joined the School as an affiliated hospital in 2016.
Sixty years' efforts and cultivations have witnessed the University's process from sole dependence on electronic information engineering to all-around programs in electronic disciplines, and the University now turns out to be a key multidisciplinary university with electronic science and technology as its nucleus, engineering as its major field and featured the harmonious integration of science, engineering, management and liberal arts, well prepared at the call of the history to come up as a high-level research-oriented university.
UESTC attaches great importance to talents work, and has recruited and cultivated quite a number of outstanding scholars with high reputations in different research areas. We warmly welcome all talents around the world to join in our grand course to a more glorious future.
