Giving to CREOL CREOL, The College of Optics & Photonics

Professors from Sichuan Engineering Technical College in China visit CREOL

Chinese delegation from SCETCChina has invested heavily in education and Sichuan Engineering Technical College (SCETC)  is on the top five schools ranked by China’s Education Ministry, therefore they have advantage from funding to international exchange.

SCETC is looking for an international counterpart to form a strategic partnership with and to provide a base for faculty training, a platform for student exchange, and the opportunity to bring the US world level education to Chinese students and they are thinking of UCF.

This initial trip to UCF will be focused on establishing a relationship and forming a road map for the future. Therefore, meeting the decision makers is essential.  This visit will mainly be to showcase what UCF has to offer.  Sichuan’s president is very interested in learning how we manage our colleges, Business and Engineering, from faculty training, curriculum setup to student management.

Consequently, our guests are very interested in reviewing in detail the possibility of a second visit to UCF - about 10 professors from various majors – business, engineering etc.) – timing, cost and exact major distribution to be determined (2015). Ultimately, they want to look into the possibility of establishing a long term China-based UCF programs and also to explore the possibility of a joint degree/certificate program between the two institutions.

Our guests will tour the College of Engineering, CREOL The College of Optics & Photonics, and the College of Business Administration.  This trip will allow UCF to find out more about what the representatives are looking for and establish the common interests among the two institutions.  In addition, it will also make it possible for SCETC to work on a future partnership with UCF.
