The University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) was established in 1958 in Beijing, is a national research university in Hefei, Anhui, China, under the direct leadership of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). It was moved to Hefei in the beginning of 1970. From the beginning the University has been firmly devoted to basic research and original innovation in order to cultivate talent and capacity for dealing with key issues in China's development of science and technology.
There are four campuses, North, South, East and West, covering nearly 146 hectares. Housed there are 12 schools and 27 departments, as well as three national research institutes and six laboratories of the CAS, some key scientific research centres, such as the CAS Research Center for Thermal Safety Engineering and Technology and 16 academic societies, affiliated with the University, including the Synchrotron Radiation Committee under the China Society of Physics, the System Simulation Committee under the China Society of Automation, and the Quantum Optics Committee under the China Society of Physics.
