Program Description:

Tsinghua UniversityTsinghua 1

Tsinghua University was established in 1911, under the name “Tsinghua Xuetang” or College. The University has been renamed several times over the years but its most recent iteration came after the Communist takeover in 1949. In 1952 a Soviet style reform of the tertiary sector began with many institutions specialising in certain fields of study, in this case engineering.  When the Cultural Revolution began many students left and the University was shutdown.  It remained closed until 1978.

The University is a large comprehensive institution with approximately 30,000 students. In the 1980s it began a process of reincorporating fields of study including the sciences, economics, management, humanities, law, public policy and the arts and design.  Despite this diversification, however, Tsinghua is still particularly known for its engineering.
