On August 24th, delegation of UESTC visited UC-Davis (University of California, Davis). Chairman of University Council Wang Zhiqiang signed MOU and agreement on student exchange with school leaders of UC-Davis. The two schools agreed to launch UESTC-UC-Davis International Summer School next year, aiming at broadening our students’ international vision, enriching their learning and research experience with the help of good research facilities and resources in UC-Davis and internship opportunities offered by enterprises in Silicon Valley. During the visit, the delegation also went to see the UESTC doctors in UC-Davis who are co-cultured by both schools.



On August 26th, with the purpose of establishing UESTC and American universities’ partnership, the delegation visited Ibero (La Universidad Iberoamericana, or UIA), a reputable university situated at Mexico City, and met the school leaders, head of Office of International Cooperation and Exchange, colleagues from college of Engineering, Sciences, Humanities and Arts there. During the talks, each side briefed the other on its own school-running characteristics, discipline setup and internationalization efforts. They also discussed the cooperation model of talent cultivation in engineering field. Moreover, leaders of both universities made an agreement to start bidirectional student international summer camp next year, from which student can gain an inside look at Chinese and Mexican culture, and learn more about Chinese and Maya civilization.


On August 28th, the delegation visited UESTC’s student exchange partner—CNU (Christopher Newport University) and AU (American University) as well. As the fastest growing public university in the USA, CNU not only possesses educational qualifications in the topping level around the world, many excellent advanced specialties like marine biology, arts, management, etc., but also in recent years, regards “international cooperation” as an important development strategy. UESTC-CNU Summer Camp had been successively held three times, resulting in high student satisfaction. Bidirectional one-semester student exchange program has been successfully launched in 2015.

Relying on the advantage of locating in Washington DC, AU blends factors and content like government institution, public affairs, business management, and so forth in teaching and research. The first UESTC-AU Summer Camp taking leadership-training as the subject was successfully held this summer. 33 UESTC students accomplished the three-week study of course and culture, and the visit to some companies and institutions. Bidirectional student exchange program will be carried out next year.
