TRACING THE ROOTS
The Zhejiang University traces back its roots to the Qiushi Academy, established in 1897 by Lin Qi, the mayor of Hangzhou. The Qiushi Academy was set up on the lines of the
western higher education system and it became one of the earliest new schools in modern China’s history. Over the years, Qiushi Academy underwent changes, took on different names and finally in 1998, the Zhejiang University was formed. The university was formed with the merger of four major universities which was approved by the State Council of the People’s Republic of China. The four major universities that were merged were the ones that had grown up in Hangzhou over the previous half-century, namely Zhejiang University, Hangzhou University, Zhejiang Agricultural University and Zhejiang Medical University.
A total of twelve academic disciplines covering medicine, engineering, management, law , economics, education, art, science, agriculture, history, literature and philosophy are taught and research work conducted at the Zhejiang University. The research work done at the university is of international standard and according to Essential Science Indicator (ESI) which ranks universities in about 22 disciplines, Zhejiang University ranks among the top 1% in 15 disciplines, and in 4 other disciplines, it is listed in the top 100 among the world’s academic institutions. The university now has 110 specialties for undergraduate studies, and it is entitled to confer masters degrees in 264 programs and doctoral degrees in 181 programs. Under its administration there are 3 National Engineering Technology Centers ,13 National Key Laboratories and 2 National Engineering Research Centers. Besides, it has set up 24 national key specialties and 39 post-doctoral stations. Zhejiang University also has six affiliated hospitals.
Zhejiang University has done some monumental research work in the field of science, technology, humanities and social sciences. It has launched a number of international academic platforms and gathered masters, scholars and high-level research teams in various disciplines. In 2011, research fund at Zhejiang University amounted to 2.817 billion Yuan. More than a hundred projects under research have each secured a grant of more than 10 million.
Hangzhou, formerly romanised as Hangchow, is the capital and largest city of Zhejiang Province in Eastern China. It sits at the head of Hangzhou Bay on China’s coast between Shanghai and Ningbo. Hangzhou grew to prominence as the southern terminus of the Grand Canal and has been one of the most renowned and prosperous cities in China for much of the last millennium, due in part to its beautiful natural scenery. The city’s West Lake is its best-known attraction.
Hangzhou is classified as a sub-provincial city and forms the core of the Hangzhou Metropolitan Area, the fourth-largest metropolitan area in China. During the 2010 Chinese census, the metropolitan area held 21.102 million people over an area of 34,585 km2 (13,353 sq mi). Hangzhou prefecture had a registered population of 8.7 million and the built-up area (including the 9 urban districts and the Keqiao and Yuecheng districts of Shaoxing) held 8,874,348.
Hangzhou is renowned for its historic relics and natural beauty. It is known as one of the most beautiful cities in China, also ranking as one of the most scenic cities.
Although Hangzhou has been through many recent urban developments, it still retains its historical and cultural heritage. Today, tourism remains an important factor for Hangzhou’s economy. One of Hangzhou’s most popular sights is West Lake, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The West Lake Cultural Landscape covers an area of 3,323 ha (8,210 acres) and includes some of Hangzhou’s most notable historic and scenic places. Adjacent to the lake is a scenic area which includes historical pagodas, cultural sites, as well as the natural beauty of the lake and hills, including Phoenix Mountain. There are two causeways across the lake.
