The National University of Defense Technology (NUDT) is a national key comprehensive university in China. It was founded in 1953 in Harbin and was moved to Changsha in 1970. NUDT is one of the first 22 universities which were approved to found Graduate Schools by the State Council in 1984, one of the 15 universities which were in the priority project for the development of national key universities during the 7th and 8th “Five-year Plan”. It is also one of the first higher-level universities designated for the “211 project” and “985” project, and supported by special funds from the central authorities. 

NUDT has thus become a comprehensive university providing a wide range of programs in science, engineering, economics, management, literature, education and philosophy. It has 10 colleges that contain 22 departments and 19 sections for undergraduates. It now confers masters’ degrees in 59 disciplines and doctors’ degrees in 28 disciplines, which include 7 first-class disciplines and 9 state key disciplines. Post-doctoral research centers have been set up in 9 areas. At present NUDT has set up over 50 research groups including 3 State Key Laboratories and 3 Ministry-and-Commission-Level Key Laboratories. NUDT is devotedly carrying out the national strategic policy of “State Development by Science and Education” and has formed a high-level, multi-type training system which is focused on training people with ability and aims to develop undergraduate education, graduate education and continuous education in perfect harmony promoting teaching, research and social services all together.

The university has over 2,000 full-time teachers and professional researchers, including over 300 full professors, 800 associate professors, 130 doctorate supervisors, 1 academician of the Chinese Academy of Science, 5 academicians of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, 13 of whom have been awarded the title of “National Middle-and-Young-aged Experts with Outstanding Contribution to the Country”, and over 200 of whom receive the government’s special subsidies. The university also has 14 disciplines offering “the Changjiang River Program Awarding Scholars” for the posts of the specially appointed professors.

NUDT has 4 campuses which cover an area of 180 hectares and it has more than 1 million square meters of floor space, including over 300 thousand square meters of teaching and research space. It has a library holding over 2 million volumes of publications, a sports ground with 20 thousand seats and a fully-functional and modern gymnasium. Its high-speed information network on campus is connected with the national education net and internet and is the communication bridge between the university and the world.
