Nanjing University of Science and Technology can be traced back to 1952, as Department of Artillery Engineering of Institute of Military Engineering of the PLA in Harbin. Since its establishment, it aims on serving national strategies and promoting social progress. In 1962, the campus moved to Nanjing. The name of the university changed many times, and finally determined as current name in 1993. In September 1998, the name on the school badge was inscribed by President Jiang Zemin.[4] In June 2008, Nanjing University of Science and Technology is subordinated to the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.


Nanjing University of Science and Technology is a multi-disciplinary university, comprising academic fields including science, engineering, liberal arts, economics, business, management, law and education. In addition, it encompasses a wide array of centers, institutes, programs, and administrative support offices. It carries on its education and research on both undergraduate and postgraduate levels in 15 schools, led by a total of 70 undergraduate majors, 116 master programs and 49 doctoral programs, and 14 Post-doctoral research stations.
