About Ocean University of China

Ocean University of China


The institution of higher education began its history in the first quarter of the twentieth century, namely from the mid-1920s. Since its foundation, Ocean University of China has undergone several changes, in particular, the university has had several names, such as Shandong National University, Qingdao National University, and others. However, in the late 1980s, chairman of the China Deng Xiaoping gave a new name to the Higher School, and since then, the Higher Educational Institute has the current name. It is worth noting that during its work, the university deserved wide recognition and earned rich experience in preparing in the field of oceanology, and therefore was included in the national program “Project 985” and “Project 211”.

The OUC has all the necessary conditions for comfortable research work, so, more than 70 laboratories are offered to students, each of which is equipped with the latest technology. More than half of them are focused on the study of marine and oceanic sciences so that students have everything to conduct research. Perhaps this is one of the main advantages of the High School. Students can use the research vessel Dong Fang Hong 2, with a displacement of three thousand five hundred tons, which is used both for in-depth teaching to students & researches. During its work, the Higher School Library Collection has collected a huge amount of both foreign and national literature, mainly focused on engineering sciences, oceanography and fisheries. It should be also emphasized that there are only a few such library collections, so this fact can be considered as one of the advantages of the university. Today, the library of the High school is referred to as the National Information of Sea Sciences.

Education reforms

Adhering to the national policy in the field of training of high-quality personnel, the Higher educational institution seeks to promote education reform, which allows you to create a completely new system of rational and sustainable structure and mechanism for teaching students.

The High education institution based on the credo of the “XXI century – an ocean-oriented century”, aims to become a university of the highest level, with a strong potential for training qualified personnel, in the field of ocean and sea sciences that to comply with international standards. Both the university and the Department of Education developed the “Road Map” according to which, it is planned to develop the Higher Educational Institution in stages. According to the Roadmap, by 2025, the Higher School will be among the best educational institutions that focus on oceanic and marine scientific research.
