The 120th Anniversary of Wuhan University

Date of Issue : 29 November 2013

The history of Wuhan University can be traced back to Ziqiang Institute, which was founded in 1893 by Zhang Zhidong, the then governor of Hubei and Hunan provinces in the late Qing Dynasty. In its early stage of development, the institute changed its name several times before it was officially named National Wuhan University in 1928. In August 2000, the school merged with Wuhan University of Hydraulic and Electric Engineering, Wuhan Technical University of Surveying and Mapping, and Hubei Medical University to form the new Wuhan University.
