The history of China Agricultural University can be traced back to 1905 when the College of Agriculture was founded in the former Jingshi Da Xuetang. Beijing Agricultural University (BAU) was established in September 1949 through the merging of Peking University 's College of Agriculture, Tsinghua University 's College of Agriculture and North China University 's College of Agriculture . BAU was listed by the State Council as one of the Top-Six Key National Universities as well as one of the Top-Ten Key Universities for further construction and improvement. In October 1952, BAU's Department of Agricultural Machinery, North China College of Agricultural Machinery and Ministry of Agriculture's Central Agricultural Mechanization School merged to form the Beijing Mechanized Agricultural College, which was renamed Beijing Agricultural Mechanization Institute (BAMI) in July 1953.
