Harbin University of Science and Technology(哈尔滨理工大学) started its activity in the middle of the 50s of the twentieth century in Heilongjiang province. The higher education institution was named after the city of Harbin, which is often covered with ice, due to the fact that it is located in northeastern China. At the time of its foundation, the university was oriented only on certain areas of science, whereas today it has completely changed and has become a multidisciplinary higher education institution.
At the university, there are four campuses, divided by horizon directions: North and South, West and East. The total area of all four campuses is more than 1,250 million square meters, and the building area is more than eight hundred thousand square meters.
