TCU also got through the undergraduate teaching assessment launched by the Chinese Ministry of Education with excellent results in December of 2007. TCU became one of the first pilot institutions of higher education implementing the plan for “Educating and Training Outstanding Engineers” of Tianjin in 2011. Currently, TCU has a total enrollment of over 16,000 full time undergraduate students.

Sticking to the theme of urban construction, TCU has been putting great stress on “setting up specific superiority in majors”. According to industry demands, TCU has established fifty-one undergraduate majors. Among these majors, “Civil Engineering” is an experimental major of the national comprehensive professional reform; “Civil Engineering” and “Architectural Environment & Equipment Engineering” are two of the experimental majors of Tianjin comprehensive professional reform; Seven Tianjin brand majors includes “Architectural Electricity and Intelligentization”, “Architecture”, “Civil Engineering”, “Architectural Environment & Equipment Engineering”, “Water Supply and Drainage Engineering”, “Project Management” and “Materials Science and Engineering”; Five majors related to emerging industries of strategic importance includes “City Underground Space Engineer”, “Urban and Rural Planning”, “Network Engineering”, “Land Resources Management” and “Art and Design”; Six majors have got through the national undergraduate education assessment, including “Civil.Engineering”, “Project Management”, “Water Supply and Drainage Engineering”, “Architectural Environment & Equipment Engineering”, “Architecture” and “Urban and Rural Planning”. Twelve of the fifty-one majors have been ranked as Tianjin brand majors or majors related to emerging industries of strategic importance and they are all under the practice of the plan for “Educating and Training Outstanding Engineers” of Tianjin.
