We have continued to promote the international development strategy. The Research Center for Science, Technology and Civilization was established. Two “Belt and Road” projects have obtained funds from China Association for Science and Technology (CAST). We have also established partnerships with 7 overseas high-level institutions including University of Leicester and ISAE-ENSMA, and set up two alumni associations of international students.
Looking back at 2021, USTB has worked diligently to enhance our reputation.
Our campaign to study and promote the spirit of President XI Jinping’s reply letter was recorded in the Yearbook of the People’s Republic of China as part of the country’s history.
USTB was awarded “Beijing Exemplary Higher Education Institution in Party Building and Political Work”, and our first “National Labor Award”.
Good news from our alumni comes one after another. Prof. SHEN Zhengchang ’82, mining, was elected as an academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering. GONG Lijiao ’11, business administration, won the women’s shot put gold at the Tokyo Olympics. ZOU Shichang ’52, metallurgical engineering, along with nine other alumni, received national awards for excellent party work.
They were born in the “Cradle of Iron and Steel Engineers”, with a gene of “Seeking Truth and Promoting Innovation”. They are shining with unique features of pursuing excellence and striving for the first, presenting a positive image of USTB!
Seeking truth in the past seven decades, pursuing innovation towards our centenary goals.
Next year, USTB will celebrate our 70th anniversary. Let us carry forward the fine traditions of USTB. Remember the original aspiration of cultivating talents for the Party and the nation. Strive for the goal of becoming world-class university at our centenary, and dedicate ourselves to the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.
We wish you a happy New Year, good health and happiness for your family, and good luck in all your endeavors!
