Introduction to Kunming University of Science and Technology

Kunming University of Science and Technology (昆明理工大学, website) was founded in 1954 under the name “Kunming Institute of Technology”. In 1995, it was renamed “Kunming University of Science and Technology”. In 1999, the original Kunming University of Science and Technology merged with the former Yunnan University of Technology to form the new Kunming University of Science and Technology. After more than 60 years of development, it has now developed into a comprehensive, coordinated development of multi-disciplinary development, such as economics, management, philosophy, law, literature, art, medicine, agriculture, education, etc. The sex university is a university jointly established by the National Defense Science and Technology Industry Bureau and the People’s Government of Yunnan Province. It is also the key university in Yunnan Province with the largest scale, a full range of schools, and complete categories. It plays an important role in China’s nonferrous metal industry and regional economic and social development. When General Secretary Xi Jinping inspected Yunnan in early 2015, he praised the school as a “National Famous University”.
