Chengdu University of Technology

Chengdu University of Technology (CDUT) is a public state university situated in Chengdu, Sichuan, China. It was established in 1956 as the Chengdu Institute of Geology through the merging of geology-related faculties of several universities in China. It underwent a few structural and name changes before having its present name and university status in 2001, amalgamating with two provincial colleges. CDUT is well-known for its nationally-recognized educational programs and research activities.
