International exchanges and cooperation

The school has been cooperating with universities in German, U.S., Britain, Japan, and Australia to carry out scientific programs. About ten professors from well-known universities, such as Aachen University of Technology, Jackson State University, Cambridge University, Hong Kong Polytechnic University, and University of Wollongong, are invited to give lectures annually. Faculties in our school attend international conferences and other academic exchanges over ten times per year. Specifically, one joint research project is granted by South Korea government.


Annually, two undergraduates have access to further master and doctoral program in Kyung Hee University, South Korea. Two undergraduates go to Aachen University of Technology, German for study and two students go to Jackson State University, U.S., as exchange students. Every year the school receives two foreign students and three from Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macao. The school also receives two groups of undergraduates from Department of Civil Engineering and Environmental Engineering of Jackson State University and Department of Civil Engineering of Aachen University of Technology, respectively.
