An Introduction to FJUT
Fujian University of Technology (FJUT) is a provincial university focused on engineering, while expanding into other disciplines such as management, arts, economics, science and law.
In 2002, FJUT was established through the merger of Fujian College of Architecture and Fujian Vocational Technical College. Its long history goes back to Cang Xia Top School, founded by the last Chinese Emperor Pu Yi’s tutor, Chen Baochen, and noted Fujian scholar and translator Lin Shu. Over 13,000 students have graduated from the engineering school, winning it the reputation as the 'Advanced Engineering University of Fujian'，the “Huangpu Military Academy in Architecture” and the “Cradle of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering”.
Located in the city of Fuzhou in the Fujian Province, FJUT occupies an area of 136.87 hectares, including 62.25 hectares of school buildings and 35.59 hectares of administration buildings. The total value of teaching and scientific equipment amounts to 215 million yuan. The library holds a collection of nearly 2 million volumes and an additional 8276 GBs of electronic books.
The university continues a long tradition of excellence in the disciplines of electro-mechanics and civil engineering. Currently, there are thirteen departments, one college of continuing education and four school-enterprise cooperative institutions. FJUT offers three post-graduate and 47 undergraduate programs, with over 26,000 full-time students on campus. The university employs 1,150 faculty members, 31.8% of whom hold senior professional titles, and the remainder, doctorates or master’s degrees. The university programs emphasize cooperation with regional enterprises and economic development organizations, providing the practical talent our society needs.
Currently, FJUT has 15 provincial or ministerial science and technology innovation platforms, one provincial featured key discipline, five provincial key first-level disciplines and nine provincial key second-level disciplines. In the past five years, FJUT has undertaken 800 research projects at the national, provincial and ministerial levels and hosted five key projects of Fujian provincial science and technology. The school has won second prize in National Technological Invention and six other prizes in Fujian Provincial Technological Invention.
In 2010, the university passed through the evaluation of qualified undergraduate educational institutions and was designated as a member of the initial group of 'Excellent Engineering Training Programs'. In 2013, FJUT became the only institution newly added to the list of universities awarding master's degrees in Fujian Province for the period of 2008 to 2015. FJUT undoubtedly adheres to the principles of “student-oriented, full respect for teaching staff, constantly improving educational quality”. The faculty and staff members are giving it their all to help raise FJUT to its rightful place, among the top applied science and technology universities in China.
FJUT University is located in the beautiful and lively city of Fuzhou, the capital of Fujian Province in the southeast of China. The total campus space covers an area of 1,368,800 square meters. This includes a campus of 1,072,000 square meters in the university town of Fuzhou and two other campuses totaling 297,333 square meters, with buildings covering 273,300 square meters.
Approved by the Ministry of Education, the university became a full-time multi-disciplinary university for undergraduates as a result of a merger of Fujian College of Architecture and Civil Engineering and Fujian Polytechnic College. Since the establishment of the university in 1896, over 130,000 students have graduated with advanced professional technical talents. The school’s alumni can be found both at home and abroad, making great contributions in fields including architecture, engineering, mechanics and electronics.
