Officially founded in 1952, known first as the Beijing Institute of Iron and Steel Technology, USTB can trace its roots back to the 1895 when the first mining and metallurgy disciplines in the history of modern China were founded at the Beiyang Western Academy. In 1952, the Beijing Institute of Iron and Steel Technology was formed by bringing together the departments of six famous universities, including those from Tsinghua University and Tianjin University. Since then it has developed into a national key university under the leadership of China's Ministry of Education, with the coordinated development of its engineering, science, management, culture, economics, and law departments, as well as other disciplines. USTB is one of the first institutions of higher education in the country to formally establish a graduate school. In May 1997, USTB joined the national “211 Project”. In 2006, USTB was selected to be part of the “985 Project” for the Platform of National Advanced Disciplines Innovation. In 2014, the “Collaborative Innovation Center of Steel Technology” led by USTB was selected to be part of the national “2011 Plan”. In 2017, USTB was selected as a “Double First-Class” university. In 2018, the State Administration of Science, Technology and Industry for National Defense joined with the Ministry of Education to supervise and assist USTB in its further development.
