Chang’an University, or CHD, is a national key university. Under the direct leadership of the Ministry of Education, it is listed under Project 211，Project 985 Innovation Platform, and Double First-Class Project of China. Located in Xi’an City, Shaanxi Province, CHD has two campuses and three training bases, with a total area of 250 hectares.
In 1951, CHD was first built as Xi’an Highway University. Merged with Xi’an Engineering Institute and Northwest Institute of Construction Engineering, it was later renamed as Chang’an University in 2000. Since 2005, CHD has been successively financed and supported by Ministry of Education, Ministry of Transport, People’s Government of Shaanxi Province, Ministry of Natural Resources, and Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development.
To date, CHD has become an important base for talent training and scientific research in three major fields, namely, highway transportation, land and resources, and urban and rural construction in China. Guided by Xi Jinping’s thoughts on socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era, CHD will continue to pursue excellence in an effort to build itself into a world-class university.
