Dongguan University of Technology (DGUT) is the only model university of novel high-level science and engineering jointly constructed by Guangdong Province and Dongguan City. It is the first public full-time regular university in Dongguan, and we are proud to have Dr. Chenning Yang, a Nobel Laureate in Physics, leading us as our Honorary President. Work on establishing DGUT commenced in 1990 and it was finally approved in April 1992. DGUT was listed among the initial institutions for national “Outstanding Engineers Cultivation Project” and has risen to a level of being one among the “first-group” of local universities.
DGUT has established an unique discipline and major structure with engineering as the focus and coordinated development of management, literature, science, economics, law, education, and other disciplines. The university has 20 colleges，59 undergraduate programs and 11 postgraduate programs. Fourteen programs have been selected in the first batch of national first-class programs. Fourteen programs have been selected as first-class programs in Guangdong Province.
