April 15, 2020 is the 71st anniversary of the foundation of DUT. Although we couldn’t hold on-campus celebration because of the outbreak of COVID-19, the hearts of the DUTers are always connected. 


Meanwhile, let’s review the developing history of the university.

Dalian University of Technology (DUT) is a national key university directly administrated under the Ministry of Education of China and sponsored by Project 211 and Project 985. In September 2017, after approved by the State Council, DUT was selected into the “World-Class University Construction Plan”, category A.


DUT has three campuses (Lingshui, Development Zone and Panjin) in two beautiful coastal cities (Dalian and Panjin, both in Liaoning Province). It covers a total area of 4.262 million square meters with a construction area of 1.68 million square meters. The university library has a collection of more than 3,668,000 books and over 58,000 Chinese and foreign electronic journals. The existing sports area of the university is 213,000 square meters.


In history and at present, the teachers, students and alumni of the university regard national prosperity and rejuvenation as their own responsibility. They have contributed to many major scientific and technological achievements of China.

In order to enhance students' international vision and academic capability, the university actively expands over 150 overseas exchange programs, dispatching nearly 7000 students to have overseas exchanges in recent three years.

By the end of 2019, there are 1611 international students studying at DUT. Between 2016 and 2019, the university has employed 3415 long-term and short-term foreign experts. In 2019, 19 national foreign cultural and educational expert projects has been approved.
