From July 11th to 13th, Prof. Andrzej SZARATA, Rector of Cracow University of Technology (CUT) from Poland, led a delegation to visit TCU. During their visit, the delegation held talks with President Bai Haili, Vice President Wang Zhongliang, and deans of relevant schools. The delegation visited relevant schools and laboratories, held meetings with TCU faculty and student representatives, and conducted in-depth discussions on teaching management at International School of  Engineering (ISE).

On July 12th, Bai Haili and Wang Zhongliang met with the guests. Bai Haili warmly welcomed the delegation, and introduced the university’s overview and important achievements in recent years. Bai Haili emphasized that the year of 2023 marked the 10th anniversary of the Belt and Road, and the visit held significant importance for the two universities to enhance mutual understanding, consolidate cooperation, foster cultural exchanges between China and Poland, and promote the prosperous development of the educational cooperation along the Belt and Road.

Andrzej SZARATA mentioned that CUT attached great importance to cooperation with TCU, which was the first Chinese university he visited since assuming office. He hoped that in the future, the two universities could maintain a close communication mechanism, deepen cooperation and exchange, and work together to establish ISE, the Chinse-foreign cooperative institution, as a model of educational cooperation between China and Poland. He expressed the wish that the two universities could initiate comprehensive cooperation, collaborate on technological innovation, and continuously elevate the level of cooperation based on high-quality development of joint talent training.

Later on, the relevant schools of the two universities presented overviews of their respective educational characteristics, and the International Cooperation Offices of both sides reached a consensus on future internationalization strategy and cooperation prospects.

On the afternoon of July 12th, the delegation visited TCU School of Architecture, School of Materials Science and Engineering, and Engineering Training Center. Members of the delegation gained a more comprehensive understanding of the educational philosophy and disciplinary characteristics of TCU through visits to design works and teaching achievements exhibition by students jointly cultivated by teachers from China and Poland, the ceramic works exhibition, the BIM Hyperconverged Infrastructure, National Engineering Research Center for Utilization of Construction Solid Waste Resources, Tianjin Key Laboratory for Civil Building Structure Protection and Reinforcement, among other places.

On the morning of July 13th, the delegation met with TCU faculty and student representatives, offering a detailed introduction to CUT and its long-term and short-term international exchange programs. More than 300 teachers and students fromTCU participated in the meeting, both online and offline.

CUT was awarded with the highest scientific category A+ for the Faculty of Architecture in the latest evaluation results of scientific disciplines at Polish universities and research institutes.

TCU has been actively responding to the Belt and Road initiative. In 2013, the university established partnership with BUT. In 2014, TCU joined the China-CEEC Higher Education Institutions Consortium, a consortium formed by universities from China and 16 Central and Eastern European countries.
