College of advanced manufacturing（Sino-German College of Intelligent Manufacturing） was set up in the context of China’s upgrading of the manufacturing sector and the implementation of “Shenzhen Action Plan for Made in China 2025”. It is committed to develop highly skilled engineering and technical talents in the advanced manufacturing sectors of optoelectronics, intelligent robots, industrial automotive equipments, laser 3D printing, and photoelectric detection devices.
The College is to offer four four-year undergraduate courses of Mechanical Design, Manufacturing and Automation, Optical Information and Engineering, Automation, and Measuring and Control Technology and Equipment. The four-year courses will include common modules, compulsory subject modules and optional subject modules, devoting one third of the hours in work placement. The courses will work with the local key players in advanced manufacturing, and develop students’ ability to tackle real-life issues and their innovation and entrepreneurship through university-industry collaboration and industry-education integration.
Building on the success of universities of applied sciences from Germany, the College will focus on international operation and industry collaborations. To date, the College has signed agreements on joint talent development with Germany’s Aalen University, Munich University of Applied Sciences, and OTH Regensburg. In the meantime, it has been working closely with Hans Laser, Foxcom, BYD and Shenzhen Promotion Association for Future Enterprises for mapping the latest technological developments from the industry.
