Tongji University, formerly Tongji German Medical School, was established in 1907. It was given its present name and became a state university in 1927. It was one of the oldest and most prestigious institutions of higher education in China. The university has developed rapidly in all respects over the sixty-five years since the founding of China, especially since the country's opening-up policy. It is now a comprehensive university with ten major disciplines in sciences, engineering, medicine, humanities, law, economics, management, philosophy, arts and pedagogy with strength in architecture, civil engineering and oceanography.

The university has been one of the most popular universities in the country, attracting a large number of students from all parts of China and all over the world. The university has developed close links with industry, which provides its students with opportunities of obtaining first-hand information through interaction with the society.
