Hubei University of Automotive Technology (HUAT) was founded in 1972 with
Mr. Meng Shaonong, the former member of the Chinese Academy of
Science appointed as its first president. It has been the only one
undergraduate university with automobile industry as the name of a
university in China.
Because of the advantages in automobile engineering, we were reputed
to be the Cradle of Automobile Engineers. In 2007, we passed the
assessment conducted by Ministry of education with excellent scores
for undergraduate teaching and in 2008 we were allowed to officially
start preparations for graduate enrollment. In 2011, we were
approved by Ministry of education to become the first pioneer
universities for excellent engineer cultivation. In the same year,
the government of Hubei Province signed an agreement with DFM
Corporation to jointly invest on HUAT.
HUAT is located in the picturesque city of Shiyan, covering a area
of about five hundred and fifty thousand square meters. It is an
ideal place for study and research. With information network
available to all the dormitories, a library with large number of
books, journals and digital information stored there and well-spaced
teaching and lab buildings scattered the whole campus, we strive to
form a convenient community for teachers and students here.
We give priority to engineering in the education of undergraduates
and graduates, especially in automobile, mechanics, materials and
electronics, but other disciplines such as management, economics,
humanity, science and law develop harmoniously and smoothly as well.
We have established close relationship with more than 90 companies
and enterprises which can be used as bases for research, teaching
and education. We also have more than 160 practice bases out of the
Our faculty is collaborative, adaptable and interdisciplinary to
create new knowledge, while maintaining a solid grounding in
fundamentals. We deliver innovative research-based education to our
students so that they become whole-brain engineers. The close
relationship between HUAT and DFM Corporation and other modern,
fast-developing enterprises provides a stable platform for our
students to testify and to apply what they have learned. With their
comprehensive knowledge and strong sense of innovation, graduates
from HUAT have been welcomed by companies and enterprises. So far we
have had more than 30,000 graduates who are contributing to social
development since 1972, the majority of whom have become backbone
and pillars of Chinese automotive industry.
We pay significant attention to international cooperation and have
established cooperative relationship with universities in Germany,
America, Canada and Japan. We employ a certain number of foreign
experts and teachers to give lectures, conduct academic researches
and teach in HUAT every year.
Adhering to the motto of ＾truth and innovation￣, we are endeavoring
to shape ourselves into a technical and engineering university
famous domestically and internationally for its uniqueness, open and
comprehensiveness and strive to promote overall strength for a
promising and brilliant future.
