Anhui University of Science and Technology (AUST) was established in 1945. It is the earliest engineering college in Anhui Province and one of the two earliest universities in China conducting the higher education of mining sciences. It is under the co-construction of the Anhui Provincial Government and the State Administration of Work Safety. It is also one of the 100 universities in the middle and west of China that are supported by the National Plan of Higher Education Rejuvenation.
Focusing on engineering, after the development for more than 70 years, AUST has formed its own distinctive features and has become an important center for fostering talent, technological innovation, community service and cultural inheritance.
