The South China University of Technology (SCUT) is a leading educational institution in China. It is a public research-intensive university directly governed by the Chinese Ministry of Education. Located in the city of Guangzhou, a thriving metropolis in South China, the university today covers a total area of 391 hectares, consisting of three campuses: the Wushan Campus, the University Town Campus, and the Guangzhou International Campus.

华南理工大学原名华南工学院,组建于1952年全国高等学校院系调整时期,是以中山大学工学院、华南联合大学理工学院、岭南大学理工学院工科系及专业、广东工业专科学校为基础,调入湖南大学、武昌中华大学、武汉交通学院、南昌大学、广西大学等5所院校部分工科系及专业组建而成,1988年改为现名。学校办学历史悠久,作为组建基础的中山大学工学院源于1931年成立的国立中山大学理工学院;华南联合大学理工学院由1930年成立的私立广东国民大学工学院和1940年成立的私立广州大学理工学院合并而成;岭南大学理工学院可追溯至1930年成立的岭南大学工学院;广东工业专科学校的前身是1918年成立的广东省立第一甲种工业学校,其历史可追溯至1910年清政府创办的广东工艺局。这些院校是早期中国南方培养高级工程技术人才的摇篮和民主科学思想的重要策源地。
The university was formerly known as the South China Institute of Technology, which was first founded in 1952 by merging the engineering schools and departments of several major universities and polytechnic institutes from five provinces, including Guangdong, Guangxi, Hunan, Hubei and Jiangxi. The reorganization, at the time, brought engineering faculties with the strongest academic strengths in the central and southern China together in Guangzhou. The predecessors of this new institute shared long histories of developing modern higher education and scientific research, especially in training students of engineering and technology. The outstanding tradition dates back to the early 20th century, when modern democracy and science were emerging and developing quickly in Guangdong province. 

1960年,学校成为全国重点大学;1981年经国务院批准为首批博士和硕士学位授予单位;1995年通过“211工程”部门预审,进入国家面向21世纪重点建设的大学行列;2001年,实行新一轮部省重点共建,学校进入国家高水平大学建设(“985工程”)行列; 2012年,进入上海交通大学“世界大学学术排名”500强;2013年1月,入选《中国大学评价》的“中国一流大学”行列;同年,再次进入上海交大“世界大学学术排名”;2016年在“世界大学学术排名”中,整体进入300强,工科领域排名跃升至全球第22名;2017年,入选“双一流”建设A类高校名单。
In 1960, it was selected by the state as a National Key University. In 1981, it was authorized by the State Council as one of the first institutions in the country to confer doctoral degrees and master’s degrees. In 1988, the South China Institute of Technology was renamed the South China University of Technology. In 1995, SCUT was listed in China’s “Project 211”, a national endeavor aiming at strengthening top institutions of higher learning as a priority for the 21st century. In 2001, SCUT was listed in “Project 985”, which at the time was the country's most significant educational project for funding world-class universities. In 2016, SCUT was ranked the world’s top 300 universities by the Academic Ranking of World Universities, with its engineering placed at the 22nd place. According to Clarivate Analytics’ Essential Science Indicators, SCUT has nine subject areas ranked within the global top 1%, including chemistry, materials science, engineering, agricultural science, physics, biology and biochemistry, computer science, environment and ecology, and clinical medicine. Then in 2017, it was chosen into China’s “Double World Class” project as a Category-A University.

经过60多年的建设和发展,华南理工大学成为以工见长,理工结合,管、经、文、法、医等多学科协调发展的综合性研究型大学。轻工技术与工程、食品科学与工程、城乡规划学、材料科学与工程、建筑学、化学工程与技术、风景园林学等学科整体水平进入全国前十位。化学、材料学、工程学、农业科学、物理学、生物学与生物化学、计算机科学、环境科学与生态学、临床医学9个学科进入国际ESI全球排名前1%。学校办学条件良好,教学环境优良,治学严谨,秉承“博学慎思 明辨笃行”的校训,坚持高素质、“三创型(创新、创造、创业)”、具有国际视野的拔尖创新人才的培养目标,着力培养创新型、复合型人才。建校60多年来,学校为国家培养了高等教育各类学生38万多人,一大批毕业校友成为我国科技骨干、著名企业家和领导干部。
After over 60 years of development, SCUT has become a multi-disciplinary university, merging science, engineering, business management, arts and social science, medicine and other disciplines into one integration. Since its founding, it has educated over 380,000 graduates at all levels. Large numbers of SCUT alumni have made key contributions to the country and the world, especially in economy, technology, and education. 



Since its establishment in 1952, SCUT has developed into a major comprehensive university that offers multiple disciplines of study including science, engineering, business, management, liberal arts, law, biomedical science, and art design. It is currently composed of 28 colleges offering 82 bachelor degree programs, 118 master degree programs, and 107 Ph.D. programs. Seven subjects—Light Industrial Technology and Engineering, Food Science and Engineering, Urban and Rural Planning, Materials Science and Engineering, Architecture, and Chemical Engineering and Technology— are ranked in the top 10 among Chinese universities. ESI ranks six disciplines in the top 1%. Material Science, Chemistry, Engineering, Agricultural Science, Physics, and Biology and Biochemistry comprise this list. Since 2012, SCUT has held a place in the top 500 of QS World University Rankings. In the 2016 QS World University Rankings, South China University of Technology was ranked in top 400 integrally, top 50 in engineering, top 100-200 in chemistry, and top 200 in Mathematics and Computer Science. US. News & World Report published 2016 Best Global Universities, and SCUT ranked 395, with Agriculture science, engineering, and chemistry ranked in 40, 41 and 69 respectively these fields.
