University of Science and Technology of China
Hefei, China

The University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) traces its origins to 1958 when the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) established it in Beijing. It was founded under the goal to cultivate the country’s most promising scientific and technological talent. In 1970, USTC was moved to Hefei, the capital city of Anhui Province. Ever since then, this prestigious research university keeps open arms for talents across the globe. Now the university is home to 16,600 gifted students, aspiring scholars and researchers as well as 2,250 faculty members.

USTC, a low-profile university aims high. It has 23 schools (including 6 research institutes) in the fields of natural science and social science, offering exciting opportunities for students to discover more. It owns the most national labs and large-scale scientific facilities. It is the only university in China operating two national labs: the National Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory (NSRL), which is the first national laboratory in China, and the Hefei National Laboratory for Physical Sciences at the Microscale (HFNL), one of the six national research centers approved by the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) of the People’s Republic of China. USTC has 12 national research institutes, 4 major national scientific research infrastructures, and 62 major provincial research institutes. It represents the highest level of China in fields of fire science, particle detection and electronics, brain-inspired intelligence technology, and speech processing.

USTC is dedicated to bridging the divide by promoting collaboration and building strategic relationship with world-class research universities and institutes. international organizations such as the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) and the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) have all formed sustainable and strategic partnership with USTC. Meanwhile, the university has attracted prestigious research universities around the world including Oxford, Stanford and Princeton to develop collaborative relationship.
