Xi'an University of Technology is a high-level university jointly built by the central and local governments and a key construction of Shaanxi Province. In July 2020, the school became a university jointly established by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and Shaanxi Province. The school is one of the important training bases and scientific research centers for senior professionals in the water conservancy and hydropower, equipment manufacturing, printing and packaging industries in Northwest my country.
The predecessor of the school was Beijing Institute of Mechanical Engineering, established in 1958, and Shaanxi University of Technology, established in 1960. The educational history of the two schools can be traced back to the Peiping Public Commercial Tutorial School founded by Fan Yuanlian, the head of education of the Republic of China in 1919, and the National Xi'an Temporary University (Water Conservancy Group of the Department of Civil Engineering) established in 1937. In 1972, Beijing Institute of Mechanical Engineering and Shaanxi University of Technology merged to form Shaanxi Institute of Mechanical Engineering, under the First Ministry of Machinery Industry. In 1994, the school changed its name to Xi'an University of Technology with approval. In 1998, the school was transferred to Shaanxi Province, and the management system was adjusted to be jointly built by the central government and Shaanxi Province, with the management of Shaanxi Province as the mainstay. In 2002, Shaanxi Province approved the integration of Xi'an Instrument Industry School into Xi'an University of Technology. The school started its celebration with the National Peiping Advanced Industrial Vocational School, the predecessor of the Beijing Institute of Mechanical Engineering, taken over by the People's Government in 1949. May 1 is the school anniversary.
The school has 3 campuses of Jinhua, Qujiang and Lianhu and 1 University Science and Technology Park. There are more than 18,000 full-time undergraduates and nearly 8,000 doctoral and master students. There are more than 2,660 faculty members , including more than 970 senior titles . Now there are 17 colleges and 1 teaching department, 69 undergraduate majors, 10 majors are national characteristic major construction sites, 16 majors have passed the engineering education professional certification (assessment), and 25 majors have been selected as national first-class undergraduate major construction sites. , 32 majors have been selected as first-class majors in Shaanxi Province, 16 majors are characteristic professional construction points in Shaanxi Province, and 8 majors are famous brand majors in Shaanxi Province. There are 21 undergraduate experimental teaching centers, including 3 national-level experimental teaching demonstration centers, 18 provincial-level experimental teaching demonstration centers, and 3 provincial-level virtual simulation experimental teaching centers.
