So far, the school has trained nearly 2,000 undergraduate and master students for the bearing industry, and most of these students have become technical backbones in the bearing industry. Therefore, the University of Science and Technology is hailed as the "Whampoa Military Academy of China's Bearing Industry" by industry insiders.
Henan University of Science and Technology, as the only university backed by China’s bearing industry, has now been established as a bachelor’s, master’s, and doctorate three-level authorized discipline, and participated in the formulation of China’s bearing industry’s 12th and 13th five-year plans, and undertook the independent research and development of China’s high-speed rail bearings, also participated in the research and development of a number of aviation bearings.
