Excellent Engineer Education and Training Plan

June 2010, the Ministry of Education and the Chinese Academy of Engineering launched the " Excellent Engineer Education and Training Program " , aiming to promote engineering education's reform and innovation, to improve the quality of personnel training in engineering education, and to construct a system of higher engineering education of the world class and with the Chinese characteristics, so as to promote our country from a large country of engineering education to a powerful country of engineering education.

 

 

 

The Excellent Engineer Education and Training Program inherits some ideas from the CDIO practice. The Shantou University joined the advent and development of the Program in China. At the outset of the Excellent Engineer Education and Training Program, the Ministry of Education asked the Shantou University to provide a training plan for the application of the Excellent Engineer Education and Training Program, and used it as a recommendation case for other participating universities.    


Having a very solid foundation of EIP-CDIO engineer education and reform practices, the College of Engineering ( with the major of Mechatronic Engineering ) was selected as a member of the first round of construction team of the Excellent Engineer Education and Training Program. In 2011, the intellectual training plan was chosen as one of the four classic cases of the Excellent Engineer Education and Training Program in the whole country. Afterwards, the Computer Engineering, Electronic Engineering, and Communication Engineering were also selected as the members of the construction team for the Excellent Engineer Education and Training Program. Through their practices to implement the Excellent Engineer Education and Training Program based on the EIP-CDIO principle, the College of Engineering is continuing to make significant contributions to the Program. 


In the future, the College of Engineering will have closer collaboration with the industry to deepen the reform of the engineering education and intellectual training, and promote the Excellent Engineer Education and Training Program to a new level.
