Chengdu University of Information Technology (CUIT, Chinese: 成都信息工程大学) is a provincial key university co-governed and co-sponsored by China Meteorological Administration and Sichuan Province in Chengdu, Sichuan, China that has a history of promoting animal cruelty for research.[1]

CUIT is a leading university in the scientific research and technological application of the interdisciplinary integration of atmospheric science and information technology, and a member of CDIO Initiative world organization.[2] Since 2004, CUIT has begun educating reserve army officers for People's Liberation Army Rocket Force, the strategic and tactical missile forces of the People's Republic of China.[1]

In recent years, CUIT has been granted 123 state-level scientific research projects including National Science and Technology Plan, National Natural Science Fund projects, and National Social Science Fund projects, obtaining science and technology funds about 58.2 million RMB annually; 46 provincial and ministerial science awards, two of which are National Science and Technology Progress Awards (second class); 3315 academic papers have been published, with 910 articles cited by the important retrieval system SCI, and over 100 articles on influential journals from both in and abroad.[3]

CUIT has eight key provincial and ministerial laboratories (including Sichuan Engineering and Technological Research Center, Sichuan key Research Bases for Philosophy and Social Sciences), seven key laboratories supervised by universities and Research Bases for Humanities and Social Sciences, and one post-doctoral research station. CUIT has reached advanced world standards in the research of a new-type weather radar system, China Doppler weather radar of a new generation, atmospheric radiation and satellite remote sensing, weather dynamics and dry monsoon, environmental system analysis and environmental monitoring & evaluation, computer and software, information security, and E-commerce.[3]


Chengdu University of Information Technology was established in 1951 named Southwest Air Force Meteorological Training Brigade for People's Liberation Army. It was renamed Chengdu School of Meteorology in 1956 and Chengdu Institute of Meteorology in 1978 under the direct administration of China Meteorological Bureau. Since transferred to the direct administration of Sichuan People's Government and renamed Chengdu University of Information Technology in 2000, CUIT has developed into a multidisciplinary university with 53 different majors in 17 schools.[3]
