Xi'an Jiaotong University, a national key university under the direct authority of the Ministry of Education, is one of the country's oldest institutions of higher learning. Founded in Shanghai in 1896 as Nanyang Public, it was renamed Jiaotong University in 1921. In 1956, at the direction of the State Council, the university was moved to Xi'an, and renamed Xi'an Jiaotong University (XJTU). As one of the country's national key universities, it was included in the first group of universities singled out for high significance development under the country's seventh and eighth five year plans. It was also included in the first group of universities to benefit from Project 211 and Project 985, with the goal of becoming a world class university. Under a plan adopted by the State Council in April, 2000, the original Xi'an Jiaotong University was merged with the Xi'an Medical University and the Shaanxi Institute of Finance and Economics to form the new Xi'an Jiaotong University. Today, Xi'an Jiaotong University is a broad research university offering programs in nine areas-science, engineering, medicine, economics, management, art, law, philosophy and education-with a major emphasis on science and engineering. It includes 20 schools, eight undergraduate residential colleges, and eight affiliated teaching hospitals.
Towering trees have their roots and the rivers flowing around the mountains have their sources. The predecessor of Xi'an Jiaotong University was Nanyang Public University which was founded in Shanghai in 1896. In 1905, it was transferred to the commercial department and was renamed Higher Industrial School. In 1906, it fell under the command of the postal transmission department. It was renamed Shanghai High Industrial School of the Postal Transmission Department. In 1911, it was again renamed Grand Naiyang University after the Xinhai Revolution broke out. After the Republic of China was founded in 1912, it was managed by the traffic department and was renamed the Shanghai Special Industrial School of Traffic Department. In 1921, Jiaotong University was set up by merging the Shanghai Special Industrial School, the Tangshan Special Industrial School, the Beiping Railway Management School and the Peiping Posts and Telecommunication School. After the founding of the People’s Republic of China, the State Council, in light of the strategy of the economic development of the country, decided to move Jiaotong University to Xi'an. In 1959, the University was named Xi'an Jiaotong University and it was listed as one of the key universities in China. In April of 2000, upon the approval by the State Council, Xi'an Medical University, Shannxi Institute of Finance and Economics and Xi'an Jiaotong University were merged and formed the current Xi'an Jiaotong University.

XJTU, in cooperation with the University of Liverpool, has established XJTU-Liverpool University, which is the first university in China to be established as a joint undertaking between a Chinese university and a foreign university, and to receive the approval of the Ministry of Education, XJTU-Liverpool University focuses on engineering. The university has also been involved in the formation of two Confucius Institutes.
