President Chen Wenzhe’s visit to the University of Missouri

From April 22nd to 27th XMUT’s President Chen Wenzhe led a delegation on a visit to the University of Missouri, to observe how our international partner’s engineering and business schools are run, and to discuss how further to develop cooperation between our two universities in these fields. A Memorandum of Understanding on Collaboration was signed during the visit.

 

One of the main projects for the immediate future is an application to the Chinese Ministry of Education to a joint XMUT–University of Missouri Institute of Engineering in Xiamen. It was also agreed to initiate an“XMUT-UM Academic Exchange Month”, incorporating a range of activities.

 

From May to July of 2015 some of University of Missouri’s well-known professors from the Schools of Engineering, Business, and the Humanities, will visit Xiamen to give a series of lectures and discuss further cooperation.

 

Two senior academics from Missouri will establish a one month academic training programme for our staff and students. 11 students of the University of Missouri’s Business School will come to XMUT for on-site learning experience with international companies and Chinese language and culture courses. On August 8th XMUT will also send eight key senior academics to Missouri on a faculty development program.
