Yanshan University is a national key university jointly established by the People's Government of Hebei Province, the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, and the National Defense Science and Technology Industry Bureau. It is a national first-class university and a world-class discipline construction university supported by Hebei Province. It is a member of the Beijing High-tech University Alliance.
The school originated from Harbin Institute of Technology and was founded in 1920. In 1958, Harbin Institute of Technology responded to the national call by moving heavy machinery and related majors to the Fulaerji District, Qiqihar, an important industrial town, and established the Harbin Institute of Technology Fulaerji Branch, which was first named Harbin Institute of Technology Fulaerji. The School of Heavy Machinery was later renamed the School of Heavy Machinery of Harbin Institute of Technology. In 1960, the school was independently run and named Northeast Heavy Machinery College, which became a university directly under the former Ministry of Machinery Industry. In 1978, it was identified as a national key higher education institution. From 1985 to 1997, the school moved south to Qinhuangdao City as a whole. Approved by the former State Education Commission in 1997, it was renamed Yanshan University. In 1998, it was transferred from the former Ministry of Machinery Industry to Hebei Province, implementing joint construction between the central and local governments, and focusing on Hebei Province's management. In 2000, Hebei Light Industry Management School was merged into Yanshan University.
The school has 26 majors selected as national first-class undergraduate majors. In 2016, as one of the two universities selected by the Ministry of Education, the school’s national certification for engineering received the observation and inspection of international experts from the "Washington Accord", supporting my country's formally joining the "Washington Accord" international engineering education organization. The school currently has 13 engineering majors that have passed the engineering education professional certification, marking that the quality of talent training in these majors has been internationally recognized and entered the "first square" of global engineering education.

The school has a graduate school and 17 directly affiliated colleges, namely the School of Mechanical Engineering, the School of Materials Science and Engineering, the School of Electrical Engineering, the School of Information Science and Engineering (the School of Software), the School of Economics and Management, the School of Foreign Languages, the School of Construction Engineering and Mechanics, and the School of Grammar College (School of Public Administration), College of Marxism, College of Science, College of Environmental and Chemical Engineering, College of Art and Design, College of Vehicles and Energy, College of Physical Education, College of Liren, College of International Education and College of Continuing Education.
The school has established the State Key Laboratory of Metastable Material Preparation Technology and Science, the National Engineering Technology Research Center for Cold Rolled Strip Equipment and Technology, the National and Local Joint Engineering Research Center for Advanced Manufacturing Forming Technology and Equipment, and the National Defense of Mechanical Structure and Material Science under Extreme Conditions Key subject laboratories, national innovative talent training demonstration base, international science and technology cooperation base, engineering research center for intelligent control systems and intelligent equipment, Ministry of Education Engineering Research Center, provincial and ministerial joint collaborative innovation center, national technology transfer demonstration institution, 3 Hebei Province collaborative innovation centers And 43 provincial and ministerial key laboratories, engineering technology research centers and social science research bases; there are National University Science Park and Yanshan University Press.
The school is engaged in heavy machinery complete equipment, metastable material science and technology, parallel robot theory and technology, fluid transmission and electro-hydraulic servo control technology, industrial automation control theory and technology, precision plastic forming technology, large forging process and heat treatment technology, extreme Under the conditions, the research fields of mechanical structure and material science have the international advanced level. Since 2000, the school has continuously won 20 national science and technology awards, including 2 first prizes for national scientific and technological progress, 9-second prizes, 5-second prizes for national technological inventions, and 4-second prizes for national natural sciences. ", "863", National Key Research and Development Program, National Natural Science Foundation of China, and National Social Science Foundation of 970 projects. In 2013 and 2014, the school had two consecutive scientific research achievements selected as "Top Ten Progress in Science in China" and "Top Ten Progress in Science and Technology in Chinese Universities".
The school actively responds to the needs of the new era, new technology, and new economic development, actively promotes the cross-integration and coordinated development of scientific research, lays out emerging research fields and research directions, and aims to comprehensively improve scientific and technological innovation capabilities and produce first-class scientific research results. The layout and construction of "three research institutes and three centers", namely the Artificial Intelligence and Robot Research Institute, the Marine Science and Engineering Research Institute, the Kangyang Industrial Technology Research Institute, the High Voltage Scientific Research Center, the Nano Energy Materials Research Center, and the research of special delivery equipment center. The construction of these new scientific research institutions will play an important role in creating disciplinary peaks, cultivating top talents, leading scientific and technological innovation, and promoting industrial development.
