Overview

Nanjing Agricultural University (NAU) is among China’s oldest and leading universities that specialize in agricultural sciences. This public university is considered a key national institution of higher learning. Located in China’s old capital, Nanjing, the university is directly affiliated with the Chinese Ministry of Education.

NAU is recognized for its system and discipline in teaching life sciences and agriculture. It is also known for offering comprehensive yet balanced programs in a wide range of other learning areas, including sciences, engineering, economics, humanities, management, and law.

Covered by Project 211, which aims to elevate the research standards in high-level institutions in China, Nanjing Agricultural University has been chosen to be one of the country’s universities to develop world-class programs as part of the Double First-Class University Project. NAU is among the institutions known as Innovation Platforms for Outstanding Disciplines, a distinction that is given as part of the National 985 Excellence Initiative Project.

NAU’s history can be traced back to 1902 when the Sanjiang Normal School was founded in Nanjing. The school was developed to serve as a teacher training center. NAU’s roots are also associated with the Private University of Nanking’s Faculty of Agriculture, which was founded in 1914. In 1952, the agricultural faculties of the University of Nanking (now Nanjing University) and National Central University, and some departments of the Agricultural College of Zhejiang University, were combined together to form the Nanjing Agricultural College. In 1984, the college adopted the name Nanjing Agricultural University upon gaining university status. Sixteen years later, in 2000, China’s Ministry of Education took over its management from the Ministry of Agriculture.

Today, Nanjing Agricultural University is composed of 18 colleges and one department. These include the College of Agriculture, the College of Horticulture, the College of Food Science and Technology, the College of Animal Science and Technology, the College of Resources and Environmental Sciences, and the College of Life Sciences. NAU offers 62 undergraduate programs across these faculties, as well as 31 first-level master’s degree programs, 15 professional degree programs, 17 first-level doctoral programs, and 15 postdoctoral programs.

As of the latest data, NAU has more than 25,500 full-time students, roughly 17,000 of which are taking up undergraduate programs, while over 8,500 are postgraduate program enrollees.

NAU also boasts of an outstanding roster of faculty members. With over 2,700 faculty and staff members, NAU is home to two academicians of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, eight of whom have been provincially and nationally recognized for their academic accomplishments, with many others who have received awards such as “National Model Teacher” and “National Outstanding Teacher.”
