Tsinghua University, located in the northwestern suburbs of Beijing, is one of the most prestigious universities in China. Established in 1911 as a preparatory school for those students who were sent by the government to study in the United States, Tsinghua developed into a university in 1925 and has evolved into a comprehensive university. Tsinghua has retained its character and charm while promoting rigorous scholarship and ensuring academic and educational prestige in China and abroad. It is considered the best university in China for engineering and business, known as the “Chinese MIT.” Many top
scientists, engineers, politicians, and business leaders in China are Tsinghua alumni.
Interesting fact: The campus is located on the former site of Qing Dynasty royal gardens and retains some Chinese-style landscaping as well as some traditional buildings, but many of its buildings are in a Western style, reflecting the American influence in its history.
