Enhancing Cooperation with Major Chinese Universities is SPbPU's top priority
At the end of February 2016, SPbPU delegation headed by Vice-Rector for International Relations D. G. Arseniev visited the People's Republic of China looking to enhance strategic relationship in the field of education and science. The Polytechnic University was also represented by S. B. Makarov, Director of the Institute of Physics, Nanotechnology and Telecommunications (IPNT), and V. I. Malyugin, Project Manager in South-East Asia.
The first meeting with the Chinese colleagues took place at Tsinghua University, which is one of SPbPU's priority partners. Director of the IPNT S. B. Makarov and Professor Wang Dong, Head of the School of Aerospace Engineering, signed a Protocol on putting together a task group to work on the project in 'Non-contact techniques for engine diagnostics'. One of the results of the partnership is a joint article for the Tsinghua Science and Technology journal. Also, a joint grant proposal is currently being prepared, and a post-graduate from Tsinghua University will get partner tutelage and the opportunity to study at SPbPU in 2016. Chinese experts in systems engineering are set to serve scholarships at the Polytechnic University.
SPbPU business program in Harbin Engineering University (HEU) was also aimed at solving general problems of educational and scientific cooperation with the People's Republic of China. Director of the IPNT S. B. Makarov and the Director of the HEU College of Electronics and Radio Engineering signed a protocol of intent and agreed to prepare two joint grant proposals.
Summarizing this educational visit to the People's Republic of China, it is obvious that China and Russia are not just strategic partners. We hold the same views on many initiatives. Our cooperation is aimed at high-quality training, joint innovative projects, and enhancing relationship between Chinese and Russian scientists. Importantly, all participants of the global educational and scientific dialog are positive about the success of this cooperation.
