The predecessor Shenyang Mechanical and Electrical Engineering College founded in 1949 was renamed SUT in 1985, and it used to be affiliated with the State Ministry of Mechanical Industry.
It was built by the central government and the local government since 1998, mainly managed by Liaoning Province. SUT is made up by 4 campuses, namely, Central Campus, Xingshun Campus, Science and Technology Park and Liaoyang Campus. The core campus-Central Campus is located in Shenyang Economic and Technological Development Area which is a center for equipment manufacturing industry. Covering a total area of 1,596,000 square meters and building area of 624,000 square meters, SUT has 20 Schools, 3 Teaching Departments, 2 Engineering Practice Centers, with 50 undergraduate programs and 20 three-year-term programs.
