Beijing University of Technology
Beijing University of Technology (Beijing Tech) was founded in 1960. It is a key university under the jurisdiction of the Beijing municipal government and ranked as one of the 100 key universities for the 21st century. Beijing Tech is a multidisciplinary institution with 16 colleges. It recently restructured itself to focus on new and advanced areas such as electronic information, bioengineering and new medicine, optical-mechanical-electronic integration, new materials, environmental protection and resources, urban construction and administration, and the requirement of industries. The campus is located in southeastern Beijing with a student population of about 13,000 undergraduates, 11,000 graduate students, and over 1,000 international students. The City of Beijing has been in existence for more than 3,000 years and has been the capital of China for many centuries. Today Beijing is the political, cultural, and administrative center of a resurgent China, and the home of approximately 13 million citizens. The Forbidden City, which was off-limits to most of the world for more than 600 years, is the biggest and best preserved cluster of ancient buildings in China. World-renowned landmarks such as Tiananmen Square, the Temple of Heaven, Beihai Lake with its pagoda-capped island, the woods of Coal Hill Park, and Olympic Stadium are only some of Beijing's highlights that you can visit.
Beijing University of Technology offers a special Engineering Program for International Students (EPIS Program). This program is comprised of engineering courses taught in English, a research project, and courses in Chinese language and culture. Exchange participants in the EPIS program will have lectures on a variety of topics related to Chinese engineering. These lectures will be given in English by Beijing Tech professors. In addition, students will participate in a group research project with other Beijing Tech students under the guidance of a Beijing Tech professor. Beginner Chinese language courses will be given along with lectures on Chinese culture to help students communicate more easily with their local counterparts and learn more about Chinese culture. These courses will be supplemented by cultural activities organized by Beijing Tech. Students can earn up to 30 ECTS credits, which will transfer as 15 UB credits per semester.
Exchange students will live in the International Student Dormitory at Beijing University of Technology. This dormitory provides shared rooms with shared bathrooms.
