Tsinghua University

Tsinghua UniversityTsinghua University is a comprehensive university incorporating science, engineering, liberal arts and management departments with special stress on engineering. Founded in 1911, the University is situated around a beautiful villa of the Qing Dynasty in the northwestern suburbs of Beijing. Known for its limpid pools and verdant trees, which is the original meaning of the word “Tsinghua”, the University now has a campus area of more than 520 hectares (1,300acres) and over 700,000 square metres of floor space.

In its early days, it was called Tsinghua School, a school for sending students to further their studies in the United States. In addition, students recommended by other Chinese universities for advanced studies in America were also, after under a subsidization programme in examinations and training, sent the name of Tsinghua School. During the 1920s, it was reorganized into the National Tsinghua University. After the War Against Japanese Aggression broke out in 1937, it moved to Kunming in Yunnan Province, and together with Peking University and Nankai University, was merged into the South-west Associated University. However, Tsinghua University returned to its original campus in Beijing in 1946 with five constituent colleges: Arts, Law, Science, Engineering and Agriculture.

Fram 1911 to 1948, Tsinghua University trained a large number of outstanding scholars and scientists who became 2,687 graduates and1,976 junior and senior preparatory students during the period.

After New China was founded in 1949, a nation-wide reorganization of higher education institutions were carried out in 1952 to meet the needs of the country’s reconstruction. Some departments of Tsinghua University were merged with the departments of other higher education institutions, and the University became a multi-disciplinary university of engineering.
During 1950s departments related to new and developing sciences and technology were set up in Tsinghua University, which were rather early among universities in China. They include Nuclear Engineering, Electronics, Computers and Automatic Control, etc., and the self-de-pendent way of personnel training for those new branches of science was paved. By 1960s, the University had an enrollment of more than 10,000, and completed more than 100 important research projects urgently needed in national construction. A number of prominent branches in the University reached or approached relatively advanced levels.

Between the mid-60s and 70s, the university suffered serious disruption from the cultural revolution, but quickly recovered and was rectified in late 1976. Now the university has 4 schools, 26 departments, 27 research institutes, 6 multi-disciplinary centres, 95 laboratories and about 10 factories and workshops for teaching and research, with more than 300 faculty members and research staff and over12,500 students (including 10,427 undergraduates, 2,030 graduates and 97 foreign students) involving 150 various Degree Study Programs as well as 687 R & D projects. Besides, international academic ex-change and technical cooperation have also been greatly increased in recent years.

Four schools: Graduate School, Continuing Education School, Sciences School and Economic Management School. You can look more information at http://www.tsinghua.edu.cn/eng/index.jsp.
