Introduction

The University of Science and Technology of China (USTC), founded in Beijing in 1958, is affiliated with the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). The Chinese Academy of Sciences has supported USTC by “Pooling efforts of CAS for university development and integrating its institutes with the University’s corresponding departments”. From the beginning, USTC was established with the aim of developing high-level personnel in science and technology with broad-based scientific knowledge. Beginning in 1970, USTC was moved to Hefei, the capital of Anhui Province. Since 1978, USTC has enjoyed the nation’s top priority in construction projects, and launched a series of reform initiatives. USTC has persisted in the mission of “Build a Global University and Educate the Brilliant of the World”. Additionally, the core value is “Commit to Quality, Strive for Excellence, and Serve the Country through Innovation and Excellence”. In a Congratulatory Letter sent to USTC commemorating the 50th Anniversary Celebration in September 2008, President Hu Jintao expressed the hope that USTC would continue to carry out reforms in teaching and scientific research, building the university into a world-class research and educational institution for educating more and better innovative talents.
