University of Science and Technology Beijing
Introduction to University of Science and Technology Beijing
The University of Science and Technology Beijing (北京科技大学, USTB) was established in 1952 by the Mining and Metallurgy Departments of 6 well-known domestic universities including Tianjin University (formerly Beiyang University) and Tsinghua University. The Ministry of Education, which has a coordinated multidisciplinary development in France and France, is directly under the national key universities, and is one of the first batch of colleges and universities to formally establish graduate schools. In May 1997, the first batch of schools entered the ranks of national “211 Project” construction colleges. In 2006, the school became one of the first batch of “985 Project” superior subject innovation platform construction universities. In 2014, the “Steel Common Technology Collaborative Innovation Center” with Beijing University of Science and Technology and Northeastern University as the core university led by the school was successfully selected into the national “2011 plan”. In 2017, the school was selected as a national “double first-class” construction university. In 2018, the school was approved to jointly build universities with the National Defense Science and Industry Bureau and the Ministry of Education.
