Emphasis on practical ability
The school attaches great importance to students' practical ability. In addition to the normal experiments, curriculum projects, training courses, the school also carried out a series of initiatives like "Senior Mentor" for the freshmen, academic competition mainly for sophomores and juniors, "Outstanding Engineers" training for juniors, and "PAT certification" exam for seniors, so students in each grade can learn something and enhance their practical ability.
Guiding students in research and innovation
The school actively encourages and guides students to participate in scientific research, and provides convenient condition and financial support for undergraduates to join research in the laboratory. The school established Student IT Innovation Lab when it was founded. In the lab, under the guidance of teachers, students improved their ability of innovation. The research results have been applied to academic competitions, paper publishing and patent applications.
The school also focuses on international education and strengthens the support for international exchange. In recent years, the school has organized activities such as Hong Kong universities visit, Taiwan universities visit, US winter and summer visit, and student exchange programs with Belgian Catholic University and Coventry University. The number of participants is increasing. At the same time, by the combination of "import + cultivation", the school enhanced the faculty’s international education skills, actively organized and participated in international academic conferences, and thus broadened research horizons.
