Universities in Xi’an
Xi'an Jiaotong University, a national key university under the direct jurisdiction of the Ministry of Education, is one of the country's oldest institutions of higher learning. Founded in Shanghai in 1896 as Nanyang Public, it was renamed Jiaotong University in 1921. In 1956, at the direction of the State Council, the university was moved to Xi'an, and renamed Xi'an Jiaotong University (XJTU).
Located in the historic city of Xi'an, cradle of Chinese civilization and terminus of the ancient Silk Road, Northwestern Polytechnical University (NPU) is the only multidisciplinary and research-oriented in China that is simultaneously developing education and research programs in the fields of aeronautics, astronautics, and marine technology engineering.
Chang’an University has gradually formed its spirit of “self-improving constantly, seeking truth and being pragmatic, striving in unity and pursuing excellence” and earned its high social reputation. On this new historical stage, the university continues to maximally improve its talent cultivation quality and build the university into a first-class tertiary institution with distinctive characteristics and remarkable strength in China.
