Two universities merged to form China Three Gorges University (CTGU ) in 2000 inYichang, Hubei Province. Among its colleges, the history of the Normal College can be traced back to 1946. Yichang is a city of 4 million population, located in the East mouth of the Three Gorges. It is well known for hydroelectricity, the Three Gorges Project, and also for its tourism attractions. CTGU is a comprehensive university, which teaches a wide range of disciplines, enrolls students from all over the country as well as international abroad students, and puts lots of efforts to improve and develop the hydroelectric field of study.
China Three Gorges University:
CTGU has the largest scale and the widest range of specialties in the HubeiProvince. It consists of 12 colleges covering the following fields:
