Tongji University is one of the leading universities directly under the authority of Ministry of Education in China. As a state key university, it has been included in the State-founded Project 211 and the 21st Century Education Rejuvenation Action Plan of China. The history of the university dates back to 1907 when Germans doctor Erich Paulon established Tongji German Medical School in Shanghai. It was officially accepted as a university in 1923 and became a national university in 1927. It had since grown to be recognized, both at home and abroad, as a comprehensive university having five schools, namely, sciences, engineering, medicine, liberal arts and law.
After the establishment of the People's Republic of China in 1949, Tongji University became an engineering university following a nationwide restructuring of institutions of higher learning in 1952. It was the largest university of civil engineering and offered the most specialized engineering programs in China. The university has developed rapidly into a multidisciplinary university featuring sciences, engineering, economics, management, liberal arts and law, with the initiation of the open up policy under the authorization of the central government in 1978.
In 1996 Shanghai Institute of Urban Construction and Shanghai Institute of Building Materials and in 2000 Shanghai Tiedao University merged with Tongji University. Since then, Tongji University has grown into a comprehensive research-oriented university with nine major disciplines, namely, sciences, engineering, medicine, economics, management, liberal arts, law, philosophy and education.
