Over one mil­lion univer­sity stu­dents

Changjiang Weekly - - WUHAN -

The city and its uni­ver­si­ties are tes­ta­ments to each other's il­lus­tri­ous his­tory. The many uni­ver­si­ties and col­leges have helped to forge the cul­ture and soul of Wuhan.

Dur­ing the late Qing Dy­nasty, Wuhan be­gan to de­velop as a pros­per­ous in­dus­trial and com­mer­cial cen­ter as well as one of China's im­por­tant ed­u­ca­tion and tech­nol­ogy cen­ters af­ter it opened as a treaty port.

With a to­tal of 84 uni­ver­si­ties and col­leges, Wuhan is home to many fa­mous in­sti­tutes, in­clud­ing Wuhan Univer­sity, Huazhong Univer­sity of Sci­ence and Tech­nol­ogy, and Cen­tral China Nor­mal Univer­sity.

Wuhan Univer­sity, lo­cated be­side East Lake at the foot of Luo­jia Hill, has a his­tory of 124 years and is re­garded as the most pres­ti­gious univer­sity in Cen­tral China. While Huazhong Univer­sity of Sci­ence and Tech­nol­ogy is one of the best sci­ence and en­gi­neer­ing uni­ver­si­ties in China; it has es­tab­lished many ma­jor na­tional sci­ence and tech­nol­ogy facilities, such as the Wuhan Na­tional Lab­o­ra­tory for Op­to­elec­tron­ics and the Pulsed High Mag­netic Field Fa­cil­ity.

Fur­ther­more, Wuhan has more than 100 sci­en­tific re­search in­sti­tu­tions and over 40 key na­tional lab­o­ra­to­ries and na­tional en­gi­neer­ing re­search cen­ters in which re­search is con­ducted in a range of dif­fer­ent fields and dis­ci­plines.

The Na­tional In­for­ma­tion Op­to­elec­tron­ics In­no­va­tion Cen­ter was of­fi­cially es­tab­lished in FiberHome Tech­nolo­gies on April 26. It is the first and only na­tional in­for­ma­tion op­to­elec­tron­ics cen­ter, aiming to build a world-class man­u­fac­tur­ing plat­form of in­for­ma­tion op­to­elec­tron­ics within three years.

The No.1 pro­duc­tion and cen­tral power build­ing of the state-level in­te­grated cir­cuit base project (Phase I) is nowready for op­er­a­tion. It was the first such base ap­proved by the State Coun­cil in Fe­bru­ary 2016. By 2022, when the three build­ings start full op­er­a­tion, the ca­pac­ity po­ten­tial is ex­pected to be 300,000 chips per month.
