Northeastern University (NEU) is a public university located in the Heping District in Shenyang, China. It was founded on April 26, 1923 by Zhang Zuolin, the Grand Marshal of the Republican Government in Fengtian at the time. NEU is a multidisciplinary university that specializes in engineering which has allowed it to carve a niche in the field of science and technology. However, it also has competitive advantages in traditional disciplines like mining, material science, and metallurgy and mechanical sciences. At the same time, it has gained breakthroughs in emerging interdisciplinary fields such as automation and computer science.

The university has complete offerings for undergraduate, masteral, and doctoral programs. NEU is organized into five main schools: Foreign Studies College, School of Humanities and Law, College of Resources and Civil Engineering, Faculty of Robot Science and Engineering, and School of Sino-Dutch Biomedical and Information Engineering. They also have a School of Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Continuing Education College, as well as research centers and institutes.

Northeastern University was borne out of Zhang Zuolin’s order in 1921 to put up a facility for tertiary education in northeast China. With this, NEU was put up in Shenyang and soon emerged as a leading comprehensive university that brought in the best students and teachers from all around the country.

When Shenyang fell to the Japanese in 1931, NEU was relocated a few times until it was renamed National Northeastern University in 1937. With the establishment of the People’s Republic of China, it was renamed to Northeast Institute of Technology. In 1993, it went back to using its original name of Northeastern University. Its inclusion in government educational initiatives gave NEU access to funding for building academic facilities that have helped shape it into the university that it is today.

Notable alumni from NEU include poet Bo Yang, who founded the Taiwan chapter of Amnesty International; Liu Jiren, CEO of Neusoft Corporation, the largest provider of IT services in China; and sprinter Liu Changchun, the first athlete to represent China in the Olympic Games.

Northeastern University is regarded as one of the best universities in China, ranking within the top 70. It has also been ranked within the top 100 to 200 universities in Asia and the top 200 to 1,000 in the world. It has also received high rankings for its subjects in material science, chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, and electrical and electronic engineering.

The university has been involved in cutting-edge research such as the use of anammox technology in sewage treatment and an automated process of identifying red blood cell shapes for monitoring people with sickle cell disease.
