Tsinghua University

History

Tsinghua University was established in 1911, originally under the name “Tsinghua Xuetang”. The school was renamed "Tsinghua School" in 1912. The university section was founded in 1925. The name “National Tsinghua University” was adopted in 1928.

Education

The faculty greatly valued the interaction between Chinese and Western cultures, the sciences and humanities, the ancient and modern. Tsinghua scholars Wang Guowei, Liang Qichao, Chen Yinque and Zhao Yuanren, renowned as the "Four Tutors" in the Institute of Chinese Classics, advocated this belief and had a profound impact on Tsinghua's later development.

Research

Home to 149 key research institutes and 13 key state laboratories, Tsinghua’s research and innovation address real-world problems and improve lives.

Tsinghua University diligently focuses on addressing the challenges faced by both Chinese and global societies by developing competitive and creative solutions, enhancing research efforts on strategic and global issues, and aiming for topics with significant prospective importance.  As part of these efforts, Tsinghua actively engages in Asian/African/Latin American studies, and carries out mid- and long-term strategic studies on key issues of human societies. 

Career

Tsinghua Student Career Development Center (http://career.tsinghua.edu.cn) serves to help the students with their career planning and development, provide talent-training courses, collect and publish the information on the job vacancies in the society that are open to the university graduates, organize recruiting events, and offer career counseling and guidance.
