Wuhan University (WHU) is a comprehensive and key national university in China. Its history can be traced back to Ziqiang Institute, which was founded in 1893 by Zhang Zhidong, the governor of Hubei Province and Hunan Province in the late Qing Dynasty.

In the process of development and evolution, the institute changed its name several times before it was finally named Wuhan National University in 1928. It is one of the earliest comprehensive national universities in modern China. By the end of 1946, the university had established 6 colleges - the colleges of liberal arts, law, sciences, engineering, agriculture and medicine.

In 2000, an amalgamation of the former Wuhan University, Wuhan University of Hydraulic and Electric Engineering, Wuhan Technical University of Surveying and Mapping, and Hubei Medical University was announced, which ushered in a new era in its 100-odd years of development.

Since its establishment, Wuhan University has cultivated more than 300,000 professional talents in various occupations, among whom there are over 100 members of the Chinese Academy of Science and the Chinese Academy of Engineering. They have made great contributions to the national construction and social advancement. The remarkable achievements of Wuhan University have won it an extensive international reputation.

Wuhan University is fast becoming a world-class comprehensive research university domestically and internationally.
