SCUT and the Polytechnic University of Turin (Politecnico di Torino, PDT) signed an agreement on May 8 to advance the second phase of building the South China-Turin Joint Laboratory.
A delegation led by Professor Bernardino Chiaia, PDT’s Vice Rector for International Affairs, visited SCUT to discuss further details of the international partnership with Professor Zhu Min, SCUT’s Vice President.
The two universities, in the second phase of the project, are expected to offer dual master's degree programs to students as early as possible, while they will also be seeking for possible collaboration in building the SCUT Guangzhou International Campus.
Co-founded by SCUT and PDT in May 14, 2015, the South China-Turin Joint Laboratory is currently running at the end of its first phase that lasted two years until this month. Fruitful results were produced during this period, with most of the cooperation conducted in fields such as architecture and automotive engineering through student exchange programs, scientific research cooperation and workshops.
Heads of Consulate General of Italy in Guangzhou, SCUT’s International Office, the School of Mechanical and Automotive Engineering, and the School of Architecture were also present on the meeting.
