In the afternoon of October 22, French Ambassador to China Maurice Gourdault-Montagne, Madam Marianne de Brunhoff from Les instruments de Coop¨¦ration Internationale of La Minist¨¨re de L'¨¦ducation Nationale of France, and three other guests visited our school to discuss the programs on Sino-French energy cooperation. President Zhang Ailin, Vice President Wang Su and other personnel from School of Environment and Energy Engineering and the Department of International Cooperation and Exchange also attended the meeting chaired by Vice President Wang Su.

 

President Zhang Ailin welcomed the guests. In his speech, he looked back on the history and the achievements of the Sino-French Training Center for Energy Related Professions (Sino-China Center). He said the Center was the first to introduce the French concept on vocational education to China, the first to build a French-style vocational training platform, and also the first to adopt Europe¡¯s practice-oriented teaching method. The Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development, the Ministry of Education, Beijing Municipal Commission of Education and other experts all paid close attention to the development of the Center. In the past 15 years, we have established 14 technological platforms and sent 20 teachers to France for training.

Ambassador Maurice Gourdault-Montagne spoke highly of the achievements. He noted that energy conservation, emission reduction and energy management are also challenges France was faced with. He hoped that the Center continued to promote vocational training and said France was planning to work together with China to improve standards, explore education programs in liberal arts so as to expand the Center. He also expected that the cooperation between our two sides will continue to be maintained at a high level.

Madam Marianne de Brunhoff held the view that both energy management and pollution control needed engineers of high quality who were chosen from elite student pool, cultivated by high-level talent training and received degree of high quality. She proposed that the first phase of our cooperation shall focused on undergraduate education and the cooperative plan would be implemented with the support of Minist¨¨re de L'¨¦ducation Nationale.

President Zhang appreciated the strong support that the French side gave to this program. He suggested that based on this Sino-French cooperative project, both sides could implement development plans of higher level: training students according to French engineer educational mode, promoting teaching level and training innovative research and development talents to meet the requirements of industry. He hoped that both sides could develop scientific and educational cooperation around major demands of two countries and solve major city diseases like energy waste, smog, waterlogging, etc. Meanwhile, President Zhang also put up with a cooperation strategy to co-build an international scientific-research cooperation lab, low-carbon scientific demonstration building and Sino-French architecture, art and scientific cooperation centers. He pointed out that BUCEA wanted to use advanced teaching facilities of Daxing campus to establish a Sino-French Engineering School as so to enhance engineering education and vocational education and make it a project that satisfies the needs of both students and parents.

Before the meeting, the delegation had a tour at the Center.
