Huazhong University of Science and Technology

Since 1952 when Huazhong Institute of Technlology was founded, or even further back, when the German doctor Erich Paulun founded the German Medical School (later as Tongji Medical University ) in Shanghai in 1907, HUST has never stopped its journey to excellence. The past 50 years has witnessed how HUST rapidly developed itself into a dynamic, ambitious and innovative comprehensive research university.


The university commits itself to the task “Seek Truth and Make Innovation”.
