History & Research

The current Sichuan University is the result of mergers of former Sichuan University and the two other universities, Chengdu University of Science and Technology (CUST, Chinese: 成都科技大学), which is under the Ministry of Education and formerly called Engineering Institute of Chengdu (Chinese: 成都工学院), a school separated from the formal National Sichuan University in the 1950s, merged in April 1994, shortly known by the name of Sichuan Union University for the new formed university, and West China University of Medical Sciences (WCUMS, Chinese: 华西医科大学), a university under the State Ministry of Health, in September 2000.[4]

Sichuan University is one of the earliest institutions of higher education in China, with many predecessors, and became National Sichuan University in 1931 during the period of the Republic of China governing the Mainland China. The earliest predecessor of Sichuan University is Jinjiang Shuyuan (Jinjiang Academy, 錦江書院) established in 1740 at Chengdu Fuxue (Chengdu Prefecture Academy, 成都府學) which was originated in BCE 141, but presently the university officially recognizes that it was established in 1896, the year when the Sichuan Zhongxi School (literally Sichuan Chinese and Western School, 四川中西學堂) which taught both Chinese learnings and western modern learnings was officially established (while it's actually opened in the summer of 1895). In 1902, Jinjiang Shuyuan, and Zunjing Shuyuan (尊經書院) which was established in 1875, the two Chinese classical learning schools, were merged with Sichuan Zhongxi School which was established in 1896 and was a new modern type school with studies from western modern learnings, and formed Sichuan University (Sichuan Daxuetang 四川大學堂) which soon renamed Sichuan Higher School (四川高等學堂).
