4 New Undergraduate Majors Added to HNUST

A few days ago, the Ministry of Education announced the records and approval results of undergraduate majors in colleges and universities in 2020. The application of HNUST for adding four undergraduate majors, namely, intelligent materials and structures, integrated circuit design and integration systems, emergency technology and management, and sports training, was successfully approved by the Ministry of Education.

In recent years, HNUST has continuously promoted the construction of first-class undergraduate majors, accelerated the upgrading and transformation of traditional advantageous majors, and cultivated new advantageous characteristics of majors. Launched in June last year, this application was actively planned, carefully prepared and repeatedly demonstrated by the Academic Affairs Office and the Application School of HNUST
