The First University in Liuzhou
Date:2018-11-05  Source:Liuzhou Daily

Liuzhouese must be deeply impressed by the Guangxi Technical College, the first full-time ordinary undergraduate school in Liuzhou, and perhaps as well have a special complex for Guangxi University of Science and Technology, the first and only comprehensive university in Liuzhou so far.

As an important industrial city in Guangxi, as well as a transportation hub and commercial logistics center in southwest China, Liuzhou had no undergraduate university yet before the mid-1980s. In 1985, at the request of Liuzhou municipal government, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region decided to relocate Guangxi Technical College from Nanning to Liuzhou.

On December 3, 1985, Guangxi Technical College, the first undergraduate school in Liuzhou's educational history, held its opening ceremony, and the Mayor Shi Qigao took a concurrent post as the first president thereof. At that time, there were six departments respectively of architecture, machinery and economic management, etc., aiming to recruit new students from all over China. The university dream of Liuzhouese was come true then.

With the increasing economic strength of Liuzhou in development, there was an urgent need for a high-level, comprehensive university to lead the growth of regional higher education and to provide Liuzhou with talent support and intellectual support. On April 18, 2013, Guangxi University of Science and Technology was established upon the approval by the Ministry of Education through merging the former Guangxi Technical College with the former Liuzhou Medical College. In 2013, upon the approval of the Academic Degrees Committee of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, it became a unit under construction upon approval for being granted the right to award the degree of doctor.

At present, Guangxi University of Science and Technology is concentrating on building a domestically advanced, distinctive and high-level application-oriented university, while striving to become a "bridgehead" connecting high-level universities at home and abroad and docking enterprises in Liuzhou.

It is learned that in 2018, Liuzhou has also actively promoted the transformation and upgrading of Lushan College of Guangxi University of Science and Technology to become an application-oriented undergraduate school. Lushan College will be transferred to be Liuzhou Technical College, which is in sustained progress and has been included in the 13th Five-Year Plan of Guangxi Education. Liuzhou's higher education cause will usher in a spring with more vigorous development.
