SCUT is speeding up its progress of collaborating with the University of Western Australia (UWA), as the Guangzhou International Campus is getting closer to start construction.
 
Iain Watt and John Dell, UWA’s Pro Vice-Chancellors, paid a visit to SCUT last week. They were received by Zhang Xichun, Secretary of the CPC SCUT Committee, and Qiu Xueqing, SCUT’s Vice President, at the Liwu Building of Science and Technology on March 19.
 
Zhang Xichun indicated in the meeting that SCUT’s Guangzhou International Campus, after a year of elaborate preparation with strong support from the Ministry of Education and governments of Guangdong province and Guangzhou, is starting its construction agenda soon. He expected to see agreed cooperative issues between the two universities to be carried out as soon as possible.
 
Qiu Xueqing then discussed the Sino-Australia College program with the guests. Since the college started operation in January 2017, three “3+2” Bachelor’s-Master’s integrated programs have enrolled 109 students in software engineering, electrical engineering and automation, and environmental engineering.
 
47 of these students are scheduled to set out for Australia this summer to participate in a summer program at UWA, while SCUT and UWA are planning to send teachers to each other to give joint-teaching classes.
 
As an extension of the current partnership, the two universities have agreed to set up a joint school of engineering at UWA, which will advance cooperation in faculty and students exchange, curriculum building, and scientific research.
