Don State Technical University opened an educational platform in China

The grand opening of Don Institute STU-DSTU, the joint educational platform of Don State Technical University and Shandong Transport University, took place in the Chinese province of Shandong. The opening was attended by Igor Guskov, First Deputy Governor of the Rostov Region, who stressed the priority importance of this project, both for DSTU and for the entire Rostov Region.
 “The institute’s activities are focused on improving the quality of education, research, developing and introducing innovative technologies, ensuring academic mobility of students, postgraduate students and teachers, and increasing the effectiveness of international cooperation,” said Igor Guskov.
The implementation of the university's educational programs will contribute to the implementation of the agreements between the Russian Federation and the People’s Republic of China on cooperation as part of the Trans-Eurasian project “The Silk Road Economic Belt”. This emphasizes involvement of Don State Technical University and Shandong Transport University in the “One Belt, One Road” strategy promoted by the People's Republic of China.
Classes at STU-DSTU will begin in September 2019. Graduates will obtain two higher education diplomas at the same time - a Russian diploma and a Chinese one.
Training will be provided in two fields of study: Construction of Roads, Bridges, Tunnels and Transport Management, and 320 students will be enrolled this year.
Shang Yue, Director of Don Institute  STU-DSTU noted that the main goal of China’s cooperation with foreign universities is to introduce high-quality international educational programs that will allow it to take a leading position among joint institutes.
Education at Don Institute STU-DSTU will be based on the 3 + 1 scheme: Chinese students study at home for three years, and the final undergraduate course will be taken in Russia. The main language of instruction will be Russian, and more than 60% of the disciplines will be taught by the teachers of DSTU.
