South China University of Technology (SCUT) is one of China's key universities operating under the direct leadership of the State Ministry of Education. It is consistently ranked in the top 50 of more than 2000 higher education institutions in China. SCUT has two campuses covering more than 3 square kilometres, one in the centre of Guangzhou and another in the Higher Education Mega City on the Pearl river.

SCUT traces its history back to 1934, the origin of one of the many highly regarded universities and institutes that were amalgamated to form the South China Institute of Technology in 1952. It achieved full university status in 1981 when it was authorized to confer masters and doctorates and by 1995 was receiving the highest national commendations for its undergraduate education and teaching assessment. Other developments included a collocated national science park in 1995, establishment of a Graduate School in 2000, and from 2001 significant cooperation and support from the government of Guangdong Province for large scale infrastructure development. Over the last 60 years SCUT has become a strong multidisciplinary university focusing on science and engineering, but with high quality complementary programs in management, economics, humanities and law.

Since its founding, SCUT has produced over 260,000 graduates at all levels. It has fostered a culture of high academic achievement amongst its staff and students, to ensure that its students have the knowledge and skills that are demanded by national, regional and local communities and employers. The employment rate of its graduates in 2011 reached 99.10%. A large number of alumni have become technological leaders, and distinguished entrepreneurs and government officials.

SCUT is committed to the continuous improvement of its programs, facilities and community service. It is engaging in a wide range of international cooperative activities all contributing to its objective of becoming a world-class university. As part of this internationalisation process SCUT now welcomes some 2000 international students from 123 countries who study programs offered in the Chinese and English languages. It also offers short intensive programs in Chinese language and culture.
