Greetings and welcome to Baoji University of Arts and Sciences (BUAS)!

BUAS is located in Baoji, the heart of China. BUAS, with 58 years of history and tradition since 1958, with its motto Learning, Rationality, Morality and Capability, has progressed in parallel with the development of Baoji. BUAS is the most prestigious institution of higher learning in Baoji, Shaanxi, China The University comprises 2 campuses, 18 faculties, offering 66 undergraduate degree programs and 29 master degree programs in 10 academic disciplines. The University is now home to more than 21,000 full-time students and over 1,300 faculty members. In 2008, BUAS was awarded the National Outstanding University in Undergraduate Teaching of Institutions of Higher Learning by the Ministry of Education.

We have a strong and reputable team of faculty members. Among its 1,300 staff members, 980 are teaching faculty. Senior professional and technical personnel account for over 30% of the total. They are not only engaged at the frontiers of teaching and research, but also are creating opportunities for our students to be mentored in all phases of the learning and research process.

Compared with BUAS, Baoji is an ancient city with 2,770 years history. Baoji is the collection of modern knowledge and the ancient Chinese culture. When King David of Israel unified Israel and Judah and then established their capital in Jerusalem, here stepped in bronze civilization era. China Bronze Ware Museum which is located on the West side of campus still holds more than 13,000 bronze treasures unearthed from this period. He Zun, the earliest and oldest known artifact to contain the written Chinese characters "Middle Kingdom/China”, is one of the most representative bronze wares. When Romulo brothers built the city of Rome, the Qin Dynasty was developed simultaneously and grew stronger, finally unifying all of China. The well-known Terracotta Warriors is a two-hour drive away from here. This is a place holding ancient culture from 3000 years ago, ready for you to explore the evolutional footprints of human development. Here is also a treasured place with graceful scenery and environmental amenities. BUAS campuses neighbors the Qin Ling Mountains in the South which is also called the South-North Water Diversion of China. In the North we border the Wei River, the largest tributary of the Yellow River, which is one of the most suitable resources for city habitation in China.

As the president of BUAS, I am honored to serve this wonderful scholar community composed of distinguished faculty and talented students. Driven by the commitment to educational excellence, constant pursuit of knowledge and visionary thinking, BUAS will continue to be a preeminent place for learning, research and training. I invite you to join us in that pursuit and make the most of your time here as you advance your career goals!
