Introduction to Lanzhou University of Technology
Lanzhou University of Technology (兰州理工大学, website) is located in Lanzhou, the capital of Gansu Province. It is a university jointly established by the People’s Government of Gansu Province, the Ministry of Education, and the National Defense Science and Technology Industry Bureau. “And the” Excellent Engineer Program “of the Ministry of Education was selected as a university, a national characteristic school for national defense education in 2016.
Lanzhou University of Technology was formerly the Gansu Provincial Technical School established in 1919; in 1958, based on the establishment of Lanzhou Institute of Technology, Gansu Jiaotong University was incorporated and named as Gansu University of Technology; in 1965, the school was placed under the first machinery The Ministry of Industry has also moved in the formation of hydraulic machinery, chemical machinery, petroleum field machinery, and welding technology and equipment majors from the Northeast Heavy Machinery Institute and the Beijing Institute of Machinery. At the same time, a group of teachers from Hunan University and Hefei University of Technology were transferred to the school. In 1998, it was restructured into a “co-construction between the central and local governments, focusing on local management”; in 2003, it officially changed its name to Lanzhou University of Technology. After hundreds of years of construction and development, the school has basically built first-class engineering, solid science, and characteristic liberal arts, and has entered the ranks of high-level universities in the country.
The school currently has two campuses, Lan Gongping Campus and Pengjiaping Campus, covering an area of 2430 acres, a building area of 1.07 million square meters, a library collection of 2.396 million books, and 1.136 million electronic books.
