Located in Nanjing----the ancient capital of six dynasties, NUIST is a comprehensive key university in China, with its predecessor as Nanjing Institute of Meteorology. Since the time when our university was established in 1960, we have tried to pursue rigorous research and make innovative progress with “serving the meteorological cause of China” as our mission. After hard working of over half a century, our university has become a comprehensive university consisting disciplines of Science, Engineering, Management, Literature, Economics, Law and Agriculture with Atmospheric science as its core and Information Science and Technology and Environment Science and engineering as its foci. We have a complete higher education system with undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral programs.  We have established a batch of national key disciplines and professional labs as well as a university library with the most complete collection of books on atmospheric science in China.

NUIST has always been attaching great importance to talent cultivation. Currently, we have more than 30 thousand students from all parts of China and more than 30 foreign countries. Since its establishment, more than 50 thousand graduates have graduated from NUIST, among whom are many famous scholars, management elites and talented entrepreneurs. Their footprints spread all over China and the world. In addition, we boast a World Meteorological Organization Regional Training Center, which has brought up more than 2100 senior meteorological scientists and management staff for 134 countries and regions. NUIST enjoys the reputation as “the cradle of meteorological talents in China”. Our alumni have made important contributions on their positions, and have won a high social reputation for our university, of which we feel very proud. 
By adhering to the philosophy of “open and joint development”, we have been vigorously carrying out the strategy of “strengthening our university with talents” and reinforcing our international exchanges and cooperation. For the high-level professionals, we endeavor to provide them with a desirable atmosphere of academic research and a perfect subsistence guarantee by combining material reward with spiritual encouragement and integrating working conditions with development space.

Standing at the threshold of a new era, we will keep pace with the times, reinforce our characteristics, and further enhance our quality of education and teaching, ability of independent innovation and level of social services, so that we can make our university into a key one specializing in  meteorological science which ranks first-rate in the world.
