Guangxi Univeristy China

Guangxi University (simplified Chinese: 广西大学; traditional Chinese: 廣西大學; pinyin: Guǎngxī Dàxué),, also known as Xida (Chinese: 西大; pinyin: Xī Dà),, is a prominent research institution located in Nanning, Guangxi. It is the oldest and largest university in the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region and has a significant contribution to the development of higher education in central and southwestern China.

Founded in 1928, the university underwent changes during national education reforms in the 1950s. Its departments were relocated to create or support other universities, including Wuhan University, Sun Yat-sen University, and Guangxi Normal University. The university was re-established in 1958 and became a member of Project 211 in 1995, a government initiative to elevate research and faculty hiring standards for select Chinese universities.

Guangxi University was awarded funding as part of the Double First-Class University Plan in 2017. The plan seeks to elevate the Department of Civil Engineering to "world-class" status. The university's four engineering, agricultural science, and material science disciplines have been ranked in the Global Top 1% according to the Thompson Reuters InCites Essential Science Indicators (ESI).
