Tsinghua History

Tsinghua University was founded in 1911 in the location of the royal Qing Dynasty Gardens, “Qing Hua Yuan”. The school initially began as a preparatory school for scholars who wanted to study In the United States, and in the decade preceding it transitioned to a four year undergraduate program and soon after the school added a post graduate program.

There have been many transitions in the school’s history, from the changing of the schools name several times to even a brief change of location due to the war with Japan. Throughout it all Tsinghua focused on its core values by offering a quality education for Chinese scholars with high academic standards. The university has also been a platform for international academics to experience educational programs in China.


After the establishment of the People’s Republic of China the university began to specialize on educating engineers, and starting in the late 1970’s Tsinghua University began to strengthen its teaching in sciences, economic management, humanities and law. Currently, the university has one of the top Engineering programs in the world, and its other disciplines are competitively ranked with comparable world class universities.


Over the past over 100 years, Tsinghua University has witnessed and shared the hardships and glories of the nation. The University’s motto of “Self-discipline and Social Commitment” has inspired many generations of Tsinghua teachers and students to struggle for the prosperity of China. Now, striving to build Tsinghua University into a world-class university has become the objective of each member of the teaching staff and the student body.
