The Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT) is one of China’s top universities and part of the C9 League, an alliance of elite Chinese universities. The public research university is classified as a Class A, Double First-Class University by the country’s ministry of education. Known for its strong science and engineering programs, HIT is also among the few higher education institutions in the world to have developed and launched its own satellite.
Established in 1920, HIT’s earliest incarnation came in the form of the Harbin Sino-Russian School for Industry, which adopted Russian teaching methods. It was founded on the premise of improving the skill sets of railway engineers. In 1928, upon the addition of the Colleges of Law and Commerce, the institution was renamed the Harbin Institute of Technology.
Today, HIT is organized into 23 schools covering fields like Astronautics, Science, Computer Science, Economics, Humanities, and various branches of engineering. It offers around 86 undergraduate programs and a significant number of postgraduate courses. Among these, the most highly regarded ones include Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Architecture, Materials Sciences, Aerospace Engineering, Computer Science, and Mechanical Engineering.
On the research front, HIT conducts its numerous research programs in its 33 laboratories and research centers. It also has five centers for joint international research and 16 state research facilities. The studies are consolidated into 10 disciplines, namely Mechanics, Materials Science and Engineering, Civil Engineering and Architecture, Environmental Science and Engineering, Automation and Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Computer Science and Technology, Equipment Manufacturing, Aerospace Science and Engineering, Big Data, and Space Environment Simulation.
HIT has three campuses—the main campus being in Harbin and the other two situated in Weihai and Shenzhen. Its Harbin campus spans around 975 acres and features numerous events, clubs, and associations. Students can enjoy cultural events with performances from the school’s international students and visit the main library, which carries around 3.2 million books and 1.72 million ebooks. The university also has a museum characterized by classic European architecture, which is open to the public.
As of 2020, HIT welcomes over 15,600 undergraduates, 9,600 postgraduates, 6,500 doctoral students, and 3,000 full-time teaching staff. Its aerospace programs have produced two Chinese spacecraft and around 20 satellites. The university also conducts research for the national government and has a planet named after it by the International Astronomical Union. HIT’s research has been recognized by media companies and international university ranking organizations.
HIT’s notable alumni include Sun Jiadong (aerospace engineer), Song Jian (politician), Ma Xingrui (politician), Liu Yongtan (electrical engineer), Li Changchun (politician), and Ma Zuguang (physicist).
HIT aims to be recognized as a world-class university and among the best in Asia with its strong research background and the competency of its academic programs. It has also beefed up its international exchange initiatives by signing agreements with over 270 universities from all over the world.
