    University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (UESTC for short) is one of the first 211 Project and 985 Project universities, and also, the only electronic information–oriented university. It is the first university in China with all the sub-disciplines of the two disciplines—electronic science and technology, information and communication engineering—being national key disciplines.

    In the 2012 national evaluation of disciplines, five disciplines of the university were ranked within top ten, in which the discipline of electronic science and technology was ranked first, and information and communication engineering second. In the 2014 USNEWS Best Global Universities Rankings, discipline of engineering was ranked 91, and computer science 95. Disciplines of engineering, material science, physics and computer science are listed in the top 1% of ESI. Ten scholars were selected into 2014 Most Cited Chinese Researchers of Elsevier.

    Recently, the School of Medicine has been co-founded with Sichuan Provincial People's Hospital. Besides, UESTC established the Institute of Fundamental and Frontier Sciences, to promote the development of basic research disciplines such as physics, mathematics and so on. The university has developed into a key multidisciplinary research-oriented university with electronic science and technology being its nucleus and featured with the harmonious integration of science, engineering, management and liberal arts.

    UESTC highly values the development of talents, and has brought in and cultivated a galaxy of leading people in the international academia.

More than 268 companies of the Fortune 500 have settled in Chengdu with the number ranking first among Midwest cities in China. The United States, German, Australia and other nine countries have set up their consulates in Chengdu.
