School profile

The history of the University of Science and Technology Beijing can be traced back to the first mining and metallurgical discipline in modern Chinese history founded by Beiyang Western School in 1895.

In 1952, the school was formed by the Mining and Metallurgical Departments of 6 well-known domestic universities including Tianjin University and Tsinghua University.

It was named Beijing Iron and Steel Industry Institute. It was the first iron and steel industry higher education institution established in New China. In 1960, it was renamed Beijing Institute of Iron and Steel and was approved as a national key university.

In 1984, it became one of the first universities in the country to formally establish a graduate school. In 1988, it was renamed the University of Science and Technology Beijing. In May 1997, the school first entered the ranks of the national "211 Project" construction colleges and universities.

In 2006, the school became the first batch of "985 Project" superior discipline innovation platform construction universities. In 2014, the “Iron and Steel Generic Technology Collaborative Innovation Center” led by the university, with the University of Science and Technology Beijing and Northeastern University as the core universities, 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 by the National Defense Science and Technology Bureau and the Ministry of Education to jointly build a university.
