Executive Dean Chris Cook visits Beijing Jiatong University (BJTU) with whom UOW has a Mechatronic Engineering program with. Professor Xinhua Deng was on hand, former Endeavour Scholar to UOW, to greet Professor Cook, as was the international manager J.J. and other teaching and research staff. Thank you BJTU for hosting Chris, we are so glad that he got an opportunity to meet the students and staff again post the launch of our joint program.
In March 2015, USTB invited UOW's Deputy Vice Chancellor of Strategy, Prof Joe Chicharo to visit USTB on a special week-long list of activities. Instead, executive Dean of EIS and Professor Huijun Li visited USTB for international strategy and collaboration talks among 25 other top universities in the world (by invitation).
USTB's open day coincided with this event and was also a huge success with so much local Beijing talent considering research abroad at UOW! We welcome students to apply and come to beautiful Wollongong!
"UOW this month hosted the UOW-Beihang Joint Workshop on Advanced Materials and Processing, the second joint workshop between the two institutions.
During the visit a credit transfer arrangement was signed for students enrolled in the Bachelor of Engineering (Materials) degree in the two universities who will spend up to two years abroad in the counterpart materials school.
Under the credit transfer agreement BUAA students enrolled in their Bachelor of Engineering (Materials) degree will be able to study at UOW in their third and fourth year and will qualify for degrees from both universities.
UOW materials engineering students can study at BUAA during their first and second year before returning to UOW to complete their degree. The exchange will provide students from both universities with experience and skills in working in a multicultural environment on global engineering challenges."
