The predecessors of Northwestern Polytechnical University were the State Northwestern Engineering College (formed by Beiyang Engineering College, Engineering College of Peking University, Engineering College of Northeast University and Jiaozuo Engineering College in 1938), and Huadong Aeronautical College (formed by the Aeronautical Engineering Department of Jiaotong University, Aeronautical Engineering Department of Nanjing University, and Aeronautical Engineering Department of Zhejiang University in 1952). State Northwestern Engineering College and Huadong Aeronautical College joined to become the Northwestern Polytechnical University in 1957. In 1970 the Air Force Engineering Department of Harbin Military Engineering College was merged into NPU.I8`d$H{*ixyw
During the “Seventh Five-year Plan”(1986-1990) and the “Eighth Five-year Plan” (1991-1995), NPU was one of the 15 universities for key construction by the State Council. In the “Ninth Five-year Plan” (1996-2000) period, it was one of the first universities to be funded by Project 211, and it was one of the national key constructions of Project 985 during the “Tenth Five-year Plan” (2001-2005). It is also one of the first Chinese universities that have set up Graduate Schools and University Science Parks.eSe\POqx1n\SF)lpk
