Tianjin International Engineering Institute (TIEI) was established on May 13th, 2014, which is an experimental pilot for cultivating engineering talents jointly established by Tianjin University and French Polytech Nice-Sophia. Based on the engineering advantages of Tianjin University and advantaged resources of engineering education of overseas high-level university and combining the goal of Tianjin University to construct itself to be a “comprehensive, research-oriented, open and internationalized” first-class university in the world, the institute carries forward with Sino-foreign cooperation school-running, explores actively the cultivation mode for international engineering talents, improves the education quality continuously and constructs an open and internationalized first-class engineering institute, in order to meet the needs for talents in construction of an innovative country, serve the One Belt and One Road strategic layout, cultivate international engineering talents, which can meet the needs of social and economic development of China and facilitate progress of the world.
Now, TIEI recruits top students from all the key universities nationwide. It is planned to recruit 30 students (90 students in total) respectively for each professional fields of Electronics, Computer Science and Building, and we will carry out elite cultivation for the students. The length of schooling is 3 years, which is for cultivation of engineers at the level of full-time professional degree of graduates. When the students graduate from the institute, qualified students can acquire the graduate diploma and professional master’s degree of Tianjin University.
The specific matters about application are informed as follows:
I. Specialty of Enrollment
Master of architecture
Master of science in engineering
Master of science in engineering
II. Scope and Conditions of Enrollment
The scope of enrollment of TIEI is the undergraduates who will graduate in 2016 from major universities and can acquire the qualification of recommended exemption graduate in their universities and achieve comprehensive results of the first 30% of the grade in the first three years of undergraduate period.
The applicants should have relatively significant mathematics and science foundation and excellent capacities of English listening, speaking, reading and writing. And up to submission of the materials, there should be no courses for which the applicant fails to pass. Applicants who have published academic papers, made achievements in scientific research or acquired reward in domestic and overseas significant competitions will be considered preferentially.
For Electronics, it is planned to recruit undergraduates who have relevant background in electronic information engineering specialty, information and communication specialty, electronic science and technology specialty, microelectronic material and devices specialty and automation specialty.
For Computer Science, it is planned to recruit undergraduates who have relevant background in computer science and technology specialty, software engineering specialty, electronic information engineering specialty, communication engineering specialty, integrated circuit design and integrated system and etc.
For Building, it is planned to recruit undergraduates who graduate from relevant background in civil engineering specialty, science of building technology specialty, HVAC engineering specialty, environmental engineering, mechanical design manufacture and automation, energy and power engineering specialty, automation specialty and etc.
The above specialties are for reference only. The recommended test-free students of other specialties with sound foundation of mathematics and science courses can also apply for the enrollment.
III. Selection Flow and Application Materials
The application system for recommended exemption of Tianjin University opens from June 23rd to September 27th, 2015 (the day before opening of the RecommendedExemption Service System of Ministry of Education).
