Taiyuan University of Technology can trace its history back to one of the earliest universities in China---Shanxi Grand Academy. It is now a general university of engineering combined with sciences and many other disciplines. It is the only university that is included in “211 Project”---a national higher education promotion program launched by Ministry of Education.
TUT started to recruit overseas students from the early 1990's. Many students from Australia, the United States, Canada, Korea, Japan and Mongolia have studied here. Apart from Chinese culture and language, the overseas students can also study for bachelor's degree and master's degree of many different disciplines.
The establishment of College of International Education Exchange has further promoted the development in this field. Now the entire infrastructure has been improved and the teaching quality upgraded; teaching plans have been reformed and teaching methods modernized. In one word, the overseas student education is now developing well under way.
