Liaoning Shihua University (LSHU) is located in Fushun, overlooking the scenic banks of the Hunhe River. It enjoys a beautiful campus environment. LSHU was originally founded in Dalian in 1950 as the first petroleum school of New China. In 1953 the school was relocated to Fushun and in 1958 it was upgraded to Fushun Petroleum Institute. In February 2000 its leadership was transferred to the People’s Government of Liaoning Province, in light of the management system of “simultaneous construction by central and local governments, with the local government playing a more prominent role”. In October of the same year, Fushun Coal Industry School was incorporated into Fushun Petroleum Institute; in February 2002, with the approval of the Ministry of Education (MOE), Fushun Petroleum Institute was renamed as Liaoning Shihua University. Since its establishment 64 years ago, LSHU has educated more than 100,000 graduates, most of whom are now undertaking leading roles in management and technology in various fields such as petroleum, petrochemical engineering and the coal industry. To implement its internationally oriented development strategy, LSHU has established long-term partnerships with 20 universities and research institutes in 10 countries, including the United States, Russia, Britain and Korea. Joint-education programs, such as “ 2+2 ”, “ 1+2+1 ”,” 4+1 ”,” MBA ” , “ MPA” and other collaborative education projects operate smoothly with The University of Edinburgh (UK), Northern Illinois University (USA), and other well-known overseas universities. So far, dozens of LSHU students have gone to the United Kingdom, the United States, Russia, Belgium and France for study. And appointed by MOE, LSHU accepts application for full-time international postgraduate studies under the Chinese Government Scholarship Program. In the “12th Five-Year Plan” period, enriched with hope and challenges, all staff members and students in Liaoning Shihua University will be further filled with confidence, sparing no efforts to make the university more prosperous. It will advance with the times, and aim at an even higher-level teaching-research oriented university with its own advantages and special features. With its roots in Liaoning Province, branching across the whole country, it serves petroleum and petrochemical industries and local economic and social development, targets the highest level of teaching and research with strong comprehensive strength and competitive forces. We are aiming to be not only in the first class university group in Liaoning Province but also to be among the foremost educational institutions globally.
