(1) History

The history of China University of Mining and Technology began in the early twentieth century, as one of the earliest institutions where China’s higher education in mining took shape. With over 100 years of imperial glory, it has borne witness to China’s history and vicissitudes of the times. It was known as Jiaozuo School of Railroad and Mines which was founded by Peking Syndicate Limited in 1909. After moving 14 times from one place to another, renamed 12 times, it has finally got its present name as China University of Mining and Technology. The history of our university is not only a mirror of its development, but also a miniature of modern higher education in mining in China. As the first higher learning institution in mining in China, its development has always been closely linked with the destiny of the country and the ever-changing society.
