British Columbia Institute of Technology

from the press release:

“Today, BCIT celebrated the official opening of the Three Gorges Polytechnic University (TGPU) Banan campus in Chongqing, China. Although students move into the state-of-the-art facility this year, the TFPU will welcome hundreds of students in Fall 2017 to learn from BCIT-developed aviation and automotive curriculum.

The curriculum is equivalent to what a student would learn at a BCIT campus in BC, but has been specifically tailored to meet the needs of the growing aviation and automotive industries in China. BCIT has also been asked to deliver comprehensive teacher training to the Chinese instructors who will be teaching these rigorous courses.

“The Three Gorges Polytechnic University looks forward to becoming a leader in polytechnic education and a pragmatic training provider in China through partnering with BCIT,” said Yi Chen, Chairman of TGPU. “BCIT’s model of applied education will be critical for China’s economic development, supplying needed human capital.””
