Date£º 2020-09-14  

Dear Alumni,

In the twinkling of an eye, 70 years have passed.

With a lingering song in our mind, long journey ahead.

On the occasion of the 70th anniversary of Shijiazhuang Tiedao University, we would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude and greetings to all STDU alumni who have always cared about and supported the development of our university.

We will remain committed to our mission and loyal to our university with an aim to educate more talents. STDU has pooled advantages from all sides from the Army to the ministerial level and the local level. It has cultivated amid setbacks the school motto of ¡°Careful Reflection and Clear Discrimination, Unity of Knowledge and Action¡±, the school spirit of ¡°Keeping Rigorous Academic Attitude, Remaining to be Innovation-Oriented, Carefully Educating People, and Realizing Aspirations Anywhere¡±, and the distinct educating feature of ¡°Promoting Military Spirit, Combining School and Enterprise, and Educating Hard-working People¡±. Decade after decade, STDU has stuck to its original aspiration to educate talent for the Communist Party and the country and fully implemented the arduous task of fostering virtue through education. In over seventy years, a large number of students have graduated from STDU. They have grown into prestigious scholars, technical professionals, and management personnel, making contributions in renowned universities and institutions both at home abroad, state-owned enterprises, the Army, and the government.

Value-driven and development-oriented, we are determined to pursue excellence with our strengths. We have kept serving key national projects and local economic construction in response to the Belt and Road initiative and devoted our efforts to the undertakings of ¡°High-speed Railway Going Global¡± and ¡°Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei Integration Plan¡±. We have continued priming the pump for the talent pipeline with a focus on solving technological difficulties on frontiers of science and technology. We have strengthened scientific and technological innovation and achievement transformation. Countless rich fruits have yielded, for example, 16 national-level awards including State Science and Technology Progress Award, State Natural Science Award, and State Technological Invention Award as well as over 50 first provincial awards, surging a new wave of high-quality development of the university. Currently, STDU has already been listed in the Double First Class University Plan jointly constructed by four sides including the Ministry of Education, the National Railway Administration, the State Administration for Science, Technology and Industry for National Defense, and Hebei Province, with key support from the latter.

With 70 years of glory, we again set sail.

With one heart, we write a new chapter along the rail.

Under the pressure of normalizing COVID-19 prevention and control, we will celebrate this occasion combining ¡°cloud celebration¡± and ¡°online to offline¡± mode. In the anniversary month of September and on the commemoration day of September 16th, we will hold colorful events such as cloud visiting, cloud academic exchanges and dialogues, and cloud commemorations. We wish to renew our friendship with dear alumni and welcome you all to join us in mutual progress. We sincerely invite you to come back home and reminisce about the good old days when the dark clouds of COVID-19 clear away.

¡°The strong pass of the enemy is like a wall of iron, yet with firm strides, we are conquering its summit.¡± Let¡¯s join hands and forge ahead, together writing the chapter of high-quality development of Shijiazhuang Tiedao University!
