The University dates back to Hubei Gongyixuetang (Hubei Technical School) founded in 1898 by Zhang Zhidong (1837-1909), viceroy of Huguang Province in China’s late Qing Dynasty. It began offering undergraduate degrees in 1958 upon the establishment of Wuhan Iron and Steel Institute, the University’s forerunner in the modern times. In 1978 and 1998, WUST was authorized by China’s State Council to confer its first master’s and doctoral degrees, respectively. In 1995 the institution was granted university status and renamed Wuhan Yejin(metallurgical) University of Science and Technology when Wuhan Iron and Steel Institute merged with two other colleges also based in Wuhan and existing under the then Ministry of Metallurgy of PRC. The University acquired its current name—Wuhan University of Science and Technology—in 1999 following its handover from China’s Ministry of Metallurgy to the local Hubei Provincial Government for administration.
