In the recent five years, we have recruited about 1500 foreign experts, who have played an important role in our student cultivation and development of the key disciplines and state key laboratories.
Every year we recruit 20 high-level foreign teachers who give language lessons not only to majors of English, Japanese and German, but also to college students of other majors. A number of foreign experts are invited to offer courses in English, such asCollege Physics and Frontiers of Physics for undergraduate students and Fracture Theory for graduate students. Besides, every year short-term foreign experts give about 100 lectures covering various disciplines and fields.
We actively apply for intellectual introduction projects funded by the government so that we can conduct collaborative research together with renowned foreign experts to solve key technical problems in research. Up to now we have formed several intellectual introduction discipline clusters and conducted steady and long-term research collaboration.
