Colleges and Universities

 (SWJTU) was founded at Shanhaiguan in 1896, named then Imperial Chinese Railway College. It is one of the oldest universities in China majoring in engineering. In 1905, it was moved to Tangshan, Hebei Province, and was renamed Tangshan Jiaotong University, Tangshan Railway Institute, and so on. In 1972, the university was removed to Emei, Sichuan province, and began to use its present name-Southwest Jiaotong University. In 1989, it was moved to Chengdu, and in 2002, the construction of a new campus covering an area of over 3,000 mu was started in Chengdu. With this, a new pattern of “ one university, in two places, with three campuses” is coming into being.

Currently, the university has 18 schools, 3 departments and 2 divisions, with students totaling more than 38000, teachers and staff over 3900, which including full-time teachers about 1800, professors and associate professors about 1000, 3 CAS academicians and 2 CAE academicians. In addition, there are also 29 academicians from CAS and CAE who serve as part-time professors at the university’s invitation. There are now 45 PHD programs, 95 master degree accredit posts, 61 undergraduate majors and 7 post-doctorate research centers, 3 national basic scientific research and teaching talents training bases, 6 national key disciplines and 1 national key lab. 

西南交通大学创建于1896年,曾先后定名为"山海关北洋铁路官学堂"、"唐山交通大学"、"唐山铁道学院"等,是我国近代建校最早的高等学府之一,也是首批进入"211工程"建设和设有研究生院的全国重点高校。早在民国初年,孙中山先生就曾莅校视察,发表了"革命需要武装、建设两路大军"的著名演说;新中国成立后,毛泽东同志亲笔题写校名;周恩来、刘少奇、朱德、李岚清、贾庆林等党和国家领导人先后来校视察;胡锦涛、江泽民同志亲自接见学校领导和专家教授,给全校师生以极大鼓舞和鞭策。在一个多世纪的征途上,学校始终以教育兴国为己任,弘扬"竢实扬华、自强不息"的交大精神,传承"严谨治学、严格要求"的办学传统,为国家培养了近二十万名毕业生,为民族振兴和国家富强,特别是轨道交通事业的发展做出了重大贡献。邓小平同志曾给予学校高度评价:"这所学校出了不少人才。有个名叫杨杏佛的,早年参加革命,牺牲后,鲁迅特地写诗悼念他。竺可桢也是这个学校毕业的,创立了'物候学'。还有一位桥梁专家茅以升,中国第一座现代化的钱塘江大桥就是他设计修建的。"

Those in good health, ready to abide by Chinese laws, decrees and the university regulations, and those who willing to respect Chinese customs and habits can apply based on their own needs.
