Universities In China, Comprehensive University-Beijing Forestry University


     As one of the key national universities directly under the Ministry of Education in China, Beijing Forestry University (BFU) provides the advanced education in the studies of forestry and ecological environment. It was one of the first universities to be admitted into the "211 Project" (the major project sponsored and funded by the government for the construction of top 100 key universities in China in the 21st century) and the 21st-century Educational Vitalization Action Program. 

     Located in the internationally well-known Zhong Guan Cun Hi-Tech Zone, the university was originally the forestry department of the Royal University (the predecessor of Beijing University) of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). After the foundation of the university in 1952, a number of distinguished experts and professors from Peking University (now Beijing University), Tsinghua University and Beijing Agriculture University were transferred to the university, which has inherited their rigorous style and discipline in academic pursuits. Decades of effort has developed it into a comprehensive university characterized by forestry, environmental science, and biology, with well-coordinated multi-disciplines of science, engineering, management, economics, law, liberal arts, and agriculture.
