The University Paderborn and the Qingdao University of Science and Technology [QUST] are looking back to a close relationship which last more than 20 years. Based on these fruitful results, it is now possible to enter a new stage for future collaborations. In this new phase of intense collaborations the main focus will be set on Applied Research & Teaching; it is planned to involve further Universities. With that said the sino-german campus “Chinesisch-Deutscher Campus” [CDC] was founded in March 2017 and will be transferred into a sino-german technical university “Chinesisch-Deutsche Technische Universität” [CDTU]; both institutions will be constructed in Qingdao.
The goal of CDC is the implementation of various university courses (bachelor degree) and subsequently systematic extention & transition into a sino-german technical university „Chinesisch-Deutsche Technische Universität [CDTU]“.
- Implementation of various university courses (bachelor degree), e.g. two graduate programs in Material Science: (1) „Coatings & Energy Materials“ & (2) „Composite Materials“
- Deployment of teaching content & method based on the model of German University quality standards/level
- Fostering mutual research activities between universities (fundamental & applied scientific research)
- Enhancing innovation capacity through university - industry cooperations
