University of Electronic Science and Technology of China | World University Rankings


Renowned as China’s cradle for the national electronic industry, University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (UESTC) is situated in Chengdu, the hometown of Giant Panda. The city is crowned as “Land of Abundance” with a history of over 3000 years.

UESTC was founded by the merging of the electrical engineering departments of 3 top engineering universities in China, under the direction of Premier Zhou Enlai in 1956. It became one of the nation’s key universities in 1960. It was selected as one of the first “Project 211” (top 100) universities in 1997 and as one of the nation’s “Project 985” (top 39) universities in 2001. In 2017, the University was selected as one of “Double First-Class” universities (Top 36 in China).



The past sixty-four years has have witnessed the University’s progress from its sole focus on the discipline of electronic engineering to one with comprehensive programs in all disciplines in electronics and information studies. At the same time, the University has also evolved into a key multidisciplinary university with electronic science and technology as its nucleus, and engineering as its major emphasis. Its ability to harmoniously integrate the studies of science, engineering, management, medicine and liberal arts, predisposes it to emerge as a top-tier research-intensive university.

In the new century, electronic information science and technology rapidly drive new high-tech developments, bringing about new opportunities and challenges. The University holds on its notion of “to seek facts and truth, to be noble and ambitious” in the pursuit of excellence and embarks on the journey to a more glorious future.



According to the latest Global Ranking by Essential Science Indicators (ESI), 9 of our disciplines are ranked among the top 1%, namely, Engineering, Computer Science, Materials Science, Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Neuroscience & Behaviour, Biology & Biochemistry, Clinical Medicine, with the first two being ranked amongst the top 1‰.



Actively promoting internationalization, the University has established ties with more than 200 universities, scientific research institutions and enterprises in some 70 countries and regions.

We value student exchange and believe it’s critical for our students to have global exposure and gain international experience. Over 30% of our students have overseas study experience in as many as 50 countries and regions. At present, there are more than 1000 long-term international students from over 70 countries and regions. In addition, we have been actively implementing the “First-Class Partnership Initiative” to nurture international elites through joint master’s and PhD programs with prestigious universities such as University of Glasgow in UK, McGill University in Canada, etc.

At the same time, we attach great importance to the training and development of our faculty. We have established faculty training centres with the College of William & Mary in USA and University of Glasgow in UK. Besides, we also have long-term cooperative relations with the world-famous universities, such as Oxford University and UCSB, etc. These international educational links, coupled with domestic ones, have enabled UESTC to have an advantageous position in talent training. 



Chengdu is the capital city of Sichuan Province and the economic, transportation and communication hub in western China.

Chengdu boasts many world-renowned name cards. There’s a relaxing teahouse culture – favourite local institutions have been serving the same brews for generations; a lively nightlife that mixes craft beer bars and clubs with Sichuan opera shows; and delicious food that is famous for its history, variety and spicy style even in cuisine-rich China, and very much a point of pride: Chengdu is, after all, UNESCO’s first-ever City of Gastronomy. It has been regarded as one of the most liveable cities in China by China Daily and other media.
