An asteroid1 has been named after China's Tianjin University, with approval from the Minor2 Planet Center of the International Astronomical3 Union (IAU).
 
经过国际天文协会小行星中心的批准,一颗小行星以中国的天津大学命名。
 
 
Asteroid Tianjindaxue (Tianjin University), coded 8917, was discovered in March 1996 by astronomers4 with the Beijing Schmidt CCD Asteroid Program at the Xinglong observatory5 in north China, according to a recent IAU communique.
 
With a diameter of 37.122 km, the asteroid orbits in an asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. Its orbital period is 6.28 years.
 
Asteroids6 are the only celestial7 bodies that can be named by their discoverers.
 
In 2017, a group of alumni who graduated from the university in 1970s started the asteroid naming application to IAU, with the support of the National Astronomical Observatories8.
 
Tianjin University, founded in 1895 as Peiyang University, is one of China's oldest modern institutions of higher education and has developed into a leading multidisciplinary research university, in engineering in particular.
 
It is also the first modern university offering astronomy courses in China.
 
Other Chinese universities including Peking University, Nanjing University, and Harbin Institute of Technology have also been used as names for asteroids.
