Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT): local partner in Harbin, China, for ASEFSU20

20th ASEF Summer University #ASEFSU20

Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT) is an acknowledged academic institution, especially in the field of engineering. Please share with us why internationalisation is so important for HIT and where the 20th ASEF Summer University (ASEFSU20) plays a role in this?

Internationalisation is one of the most important strategies for universities in China to cooperate with the world-wide development in education. For HIT in particular, as a C9 Union university* with a great reputation in the field of Science and Engineering, the ASEFSU 20 is a gate for us to increase further cooperation with universities in European countries.

How does HIT envision its role in connecting Asia and Europe and what are the current and prospective strategies in linking educators and students from the 2 regions?

We promote strong linkages for students and educators from our university with universities in other Asian and European countries. We have numerous agreements and memoranda of understanding (MOUs) with universities to allow students and educators to experience different education methods through exchange programmes for example.

* The C9 League is an alliance of nine elite universities in China, analogous to the Ivy League Universities in the United States, the U15 in Canada, the Russell Group in the UK, and the Go8 in Australia. The members of the C9 League are Fudan University, Harbin Institute of Technology, Nanjing University, Peking University, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Tsinghua University, University of Science and Technology of China, Xi'an Jiaotong University, and Zhejiang University.
