Located in Guangzhou, Guangdong Province, South China University of Technology (SCUT) is recognized as among the best 200 universities in the Academic Ranking of World Universities publication released by Shanghai Ranking Consultancy. In 2018, the school was listed among the top 50 global universities in the field of engineering by the U.S. News & World report.
Aside from being a globally competitive university in the field of engineering, South China University of Technology is a major public research institution in China operating under the Chinese Ministry of Education. In 2013, it ranked among the top 200 universities in the world based on the proportion of scientific publications on its field of studies in 2013. The university boasts a blistering record of 36,000 scientific research projects undertaken since 1978.
The university offers a variety of academic programs grouped into more than 30 schools and departments spread across three campuses. SCUT’s core programs are a combination of multidisciplinary studies, including engineering and sciences, humanities, management, law, and economics. Programs under engineering include materials science, molecular science, computer science, transportation, food science, and more. Other non-engineering programs offered are agricultural science, medicine, environment and ecology, and social sciences—all of which are considered to be in the top 1% subject areas in the world.
Formerly known as the South China Institute of Technology, SCUT was not established from scratch. The institution was founded in 1952 when the decision to merge the engineering departments of the universities and institutes with the best academic records was made. Since then, the institution’s growth became a priority for the State Council, making it the first academic institution authorized to offer postgraduate studies. In 1988, South China Institute of Technology finally gained its university status and was officially renamed as the South China University of Technology.
The South China University of Technology continues to pursue academic excellence. Its focus, however, now leans more toward being an active participant in global education and research by partnering with more than 200 academic institutions and research organizations all over the world. Over the years, SCUT has also opened its doors to more than 100 countries by accepting international students who are interested in studying Chinese language and culture, as well as those who would like to pursue natural science, business management, and engineering studies within the SCUT campuses.
