Wuhan University of Science & Technology, key university with central and provincial administrative condominium, lies in WuhanCity, known as the national thoroughfare. It can be traced from CraftworkSchool launched in 1898(in the end of Qing Dynasty) by Zhang Zhidong, Governor General of Hubei, Hunan, Guangdong and Guangxi. It was renamed in 1958 as Wuhan Institute of Iron and Steel, and in 1995, Wuhan Institute of Iron and Steel, Wuhan Junior College of Construction and Wuhan Junior Medical College of Metallurgical Industry, were incorporated into Wuhan University of Metallurgic Science and Technology. The present name came into being in 1999.
Our university covers an area of 1,803,900 square meters (2705.81 mu). The total building area of our university is 1,039,400 square meters. The total number of various all-day students is 24764. We have fine school-running conditions here. We have a large group of teachers who are highly qualified and well-structured, with high academic standard and noble morality.

All these provide a rich background for nurturing people of talents, doingscienentific research and serving the society.
Here in our university we have designed most branches of learning with a distinction of specialties. Students here mainly major in engineering with a combination of engineering and science. The branches of learning cover such categories as science, engineering, medical science, liberal arts, economics, law. These branches of learning develop with coordination. There are 15 colleges offering undergraduate education, including 49 specialties.
According to an issue, released in 2006, by the Center of Academic Degree and Graduate Education of the Educational Department of the PRC, two disciplines of Level I, Metallurgical Engineering and Mining Engineering, have carved way into National Top 10, and 9 disciplines of Level II, Mechanics, Mechanic Engineering, Material Science and Engineering, Control Science and Engineering, Computer Science and Technology, Chemistry Engineering and Technology, Business Administration and Public Administration have carved way into National Top 50.
Our university is an authorized unit of doctoral degree research, with two postdoctoral research stations. They are Metallurgical Engineering and Mechanic Engineering. We have also six doctoral degree programs. They are Material Science, Iron and Steel Metallurgy, Mechanic Design and Principle, Mechanic Electronic Engineering, Chemical Arts, Control Theory and Control Engineering. We also have 52 Master #s degree programs, 11 Engineering Master #s degree programs. We have a national key (under cultivation) discipline, 27 provincial key disciplines. Now we have firmly established a multi-stratification of educational system with undergraduate and postgraduate.
Our university has a strong research power, unique advantages, especially in Iron and Steel Metallurgy, Chemical Material, Mechanic Controlling. We have built close link with 8 big enterprises such as “Wuhan Iron and Steel (Group) Corp”, “Handan Iron and Steel (Group) Corp”, “Lianyuan Iron and Steel (Group) Corp”, “Liuzhou Iron and Steel (Group) Corp”. We have also built strategic partnership with
In the past 3 years, we have taken or held 327 such National, Ministry or Provincial Key Projects as National “Project
