About USTB

The University of Science and Technology Beijing (USTB) is a multi-disciplinary institution dedicated to excellence in teaching and research, preparing its students to take on the challenges of the 21st century. USTB is home to over 25,000 students, with nearly half pursuing a graduate degree. Here students and over 1800 teachers work together, alongside our many partners in the private industry and academic institutions, to engage in cutting-edge research particularly in the fields of materials science and engineering, metallurgical engineering, and mining engineering. With the motto of “seeking truth and endorsing innovation”, USTB is committed to providing quality education and real-world opportunities to future generations of scholars and industry innovators.

A University of “Firsts”

USTB takes pride for being a leader and innovator amongst Chinese universities, and has been responsible for many “firsts” in the nation. USTB developed the country’s first electric arc furnace, designed the housing materials for China’s first satellite “Dong Fang Hong 1”, and built the nation’s first industrial-size robot. In recognition of our achievements, USTB has been chosen as one of the first universities to participate in several national high-level initiatives, including the “211 Project” and “985 Platform for National Advanced Disciplines Innovation”, as well as being one of the first universities permitted to establish a graduate degree program and establish a partnership with a foreign university during the reforming and opening-up period. In 2017 we were chosen to be part of the national “Double First-Class Initiative” to build four first-class disciplines. As a university of “firsts”, USTB continually strives to be a leading innovator in both China and the global community.

A Community of International Citizens

Since our founding, USTB has always looked outward to build relationships abroad while instilling a global mindset within our students. Every year we send hundreds of students abroad for learning exchanges, while we welcome more and more international students for advanced graduate study and Chinese language learning. Today, due to the number of successful engineers and politicians that have originated here, USTB is known as the “cradle of iron and steel engineers” and “cradle of mayors”. With an ever-growing number of alumni both in the nation and abroad, wherever you go, you are sure to find both current and former USTB students working hard to build our global community.
