Wuhan University of Technology
Wuhan University of Technology began to admit international students in 1952. It is one of the earliest Chinese universities to receive international students under the authority of Chinese Government Scholarship Program. It is authorized by Chinese Scholarship Council to offer full-English MBA program since 2002, and successfully get International Trade program and Civil Engineering program in 2009. Up to November 2011, more than 1600 international students from more than 100 countries have studied at this university, and more than 1000 international students have graduated from WUT. Now the University has formed the educational system for international students with all disciplines, multiple levels and wide coverage.
Now Wuhan University of Technology could confer 79 bachelor’s degree programs, 138 master’s degree programs, and 68 Ph.D. degree programs to international students. Among these programs, Business Administration, Industrial Engineering, Mining Engineering, Navigation Technology, Marine Engine Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Automation, International Economics and Trade, and International Business could accept class-formed international students taught in English for bachelor degree; MBA, Material Science and Engineering, Civil Engineering, International Trade, and Industrial Engineering ,Mining Engineering could accept class-formed international students taught in English for master degree; and Material Science and Engineering, Management Science and Engineering, and Economics could accept class-formed international students taught in English for Ph.D.
WUT has established ”WUT Scholarship for Outstanding International Students”, “WUT Friendship Scholarships for International Students” , and “University Postgraduate Program Scholarship” to support excellent international students to study in WUT. And the university would reward the international students who are excellent in both character and study. It also recommends international students to apply part-time jobs in campus based on their situation, so as to attract more excellent self-supported student to come. In order to improve the knowledge of international students in maths, physics and chemistry which are studying their majors in Chinese, the university starts to organize the intensive course for self-supported language students before their majors, so as to increase the basic knowledge in maths, physics and chemistry combined with the previous language course. It also organizes the intensive specialized fundamental courses for the first-year undergraduates in the categories of sciences and engineering, economics and management, and arts. The university also provides financial support to arrange Chinese students to help the first and second year undergraduates in the form of “one Chinese student helps one international student which are in the same class”, which would help freshman to adapt to the new study and living environment.
WUT has set up Center for Teaching Chinese as the Second Language, which is responsible for training students who would be taught their majors in Chinese for Chinese and Chinese words in math, physics and chemistry. The university selected two international students to participate the First CCTV Chinese Competition for International Students in China, and both of them had successfully got into the final competition, one of them whose name is SHIROUYEH BAYEGAN from Iran finally got the third of the final. And Mr. MOSTAK，AHAMED GALIB from Bangladesh who has been studying in our university for eight years got “Youth Medal of Wuhan City” in 2006 and the “Fourth Ten Outstanding Volunteers of Hubei Province” in 2008.
Until now, there are around 1000 international students who have graduated from WUT, and have become mainstay in their countries or areas.
