BUAA Sino-french Academy of Engi­neers

China's Foreign Trade (English) - - Education & Culture -

The project draws from the ed­u­ca­tion method of French en­gi­neer­ing tech­nol­ogy man­age­ment and the ex­pe­ri­ence of train­ing engi­neers. By in­tro­duc­ing ad­vanced ed­u­ca­tional ideas and high-qual­ity ed­u­ca­tional re­sources, Bei­jing Univer­sity of Aero­nau­tics and Astro­nau­tics (BUAA) gives full play to its ad­van­tages: it ex­plores ways to train in­ter­na­tional ta­lents with both en­gi­neer­ing tech­nol­ogy and sci­en­tific knowl­edge of man­age­ment in the process of in­te­gra­tion and de­vel­op­ment, es­tab­lishes a dis­tin­guish­ing ta­lent train­ing sys­tem which aims at cul­ti­vat­ing high-qual­ity in­ter­na­tional en­gi­neer­ing ta­lents. BUAA aims to in­no­vate higher en­gi­neer­ing ed­u­ca­tion, to pro­vide ref­er­ence ex­pe­ri­ence for our higher en­gi­neer­ing ed­u­ca­tion, and to carry out ed­u­ca­tional, sci­en­tific and tech­no­log­i­cal, cul­tural ex­changes with France and French-speak­ing coun­tries to serve the na­tional diplo­macy.

The project aims to en­able the stu­dents to have a global vi­sion, think sys­tem­at­i­cally and in­no­vate co­or­di­nately with oth­ers, there­fore the stu­dents would be com­pe­tent enough in a di­verse world and to con­front rapid chal­lenges and changes. It aims to cul­ti­vate stu­dents with five abil­i­ties and qual­i­ties: the abil­ity to un­der­stand in­ter­na­tional rules, tol­er­ate dif­fer­ent cul­tures and col­lab­o­rate with them; the abil­ity to think sys­tem­at­i­cally, in­te­grate and trans­fer multi- dis­ci­plinary knowl­edge; in­no­va­tive abil­ity to solve com­plex en­gi­neer­ing prob­lems in an un­cer­tain en­vi­ron­ment; the abil­ity to re­spect en­gi­neer­ing ethics and so­cial val­ues; and the abil­ity to or­ga­nize, col­lab­o­rate the lead­er­ship and be crit­i­cal and re­flec­tive.

This project will in­te­grate the ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem as well as the train­ing mode for French en­gi­neer de­grees, and re­quire the stu­dents to con­tinue pur­su­ing a mas­ter de­gree af­ter an un­der­grad­u­ate one. The to­tal ed­u­ca­tion takes 6.5 years, in which the un­der­grad­u­ate re­quires 4 years' study and the grad­u­ate 2.5 years but this could be read­justed ac­cord­ing to the needs of dif­fer­ent in­di­vid­u­als. The col­lege has set up a plat­form for cul­ti­vat­ing ta­lents with trilin­gual abil­i­ties and fa­mil­iar with Chi­nese and West­ern cul­tures, and it has also es­tab­lished, for the first time in China, an “in­no­va­tion train­ing base for the in­ter­na­tion­al­iza­tion of in­dus­trial sci­ence and tech­nol­ogy” .
