Which Chinese Universities Do Foreign Leaders Prefer To Visit?

The foreign diplomacy of China's universities

Universities in China are often visited by overseas leaders and the university is always meticulously selected ahead of time, so how much does a national leader's choice of university to visit reflect their political stance?

The Chinese Universities Alumni Association, which issues a ranking of universities each year, recently published a report on official visits by foreign heads of state to Chinese universities. From the founding of the People's Republic of China in 1949, 232 foreign leaders have visited 52 Chinese universities. The most common choice for foreign heads of state is Peking University, which has seen visits from 54 foreign leaders. The second most popular was Tsinghua University, with visits from 35 foreign heads of state, and third was China Foreign Affairs University with 22 visits.

The US seems to favor visits to Tsinghua University, as both former president Richard Nixon and former president George W Bush have made speeches there. This has a lot to do with the US role in the founding of the school. In 1900, after the Eight Nation Alliance comprising forces from Japan, Russia, the United Kingdom, France, the United States, Germany, Austria-Hungary and Italy intervened to put down the Boxer Rebellion in China, the Qing government compensated them with 22.5 million kilograms of silver. Later the US decided to use this compensation to provide grants for Chinese students to study in the US. The US set up a preparatory school to prepare the students for their studies abroad called Tsinghua College, which later became Tsinghua University.

Russian leaders, on the other hand, prefer to visit Peking University. In 2002, the same year that Bush visited Tsinghua, Putin made a speech at Peking University. Former Russian president and incumbent prime minister Dmitry Medvedev has also visited the school. Peking University was one of the first Chinese universities to adopt Marxist theory. During the Second World War, when it united with other universities to form National Southwestern Associated University, it was influenced greatly by political theory from the Soviet Union, which is why Russian leaders favor Peking University.

German leaders prefer to visit Shanghai's Tongji University, because of the school's links to Germany. In 1893 a German doctor founded a German clinic in Shanghai and this later became Tongji Medical College in 1908. The Tongji of the university's title, is a reference to the Chinese idiom "tongzhougongji," meaning "to cross a river in the same boat," indicating that the German and Chinese people were working towards common goals. Former German chancellors including Helmut Kohl and Gerhard Schroder as well as current chancellor Angela Merkel have all visited the school.

French leaders often visit Wuhan University in central China's Hubei province. In 1980, Chinese leaders are said to have shown visiting French leaders Wuhan University, which was relatively undamaged by the Cultural Revolution. Wuhan University thereafter served as a springboard for French exchange initiatives and France established a consulate and a car production line in Wuhan. France has concentrated a third of its investment in China in Hubei and the majority of Chinese exchange students who study in France graduate from Wuhan University.

English Medium Computer Science and Technology Program in China Universities

Computer science is the scientific and practical approach to computation and its applications. It is the systematic study of the feasibility, structure, expression, and mechanization of the methodical procedures (or algorithms) that underlie the acquisition, representation, processing, storage, communication of, and access to information, whether such information is encoded as bits in a computer memory or transcribed in genes and protein structures in a biological cell. An alternate, more succinct definition of computer science is the study of automating algorithmic processes that scale. A computer scientist specializes in the theory of computation and the design of computational systems.

Its subfields can be divided into a variety of theoretical and practical disciplines. Some fields, such as computational complexity theory (which explores the fundamental properties of computational and intractable problems), are highly abstract, while fields such as computer graphics emphasize real-world visual applications. Still other fields focus on the challenges in implementing computation. For example, programming language theory considers various approaches to the description of computation, while the study of computer programming itself investigates various aspects of the use of programming language and complex systems. Human–computer interaction considers the challenges in making computers and computations useful, usable, and universally accessible to humans. (source - wikipedia)

English Medium Mechatronics Engineering Program in China Universities

Mechatronics is a multidisciplinary field of engineering that includes a combination of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, telecommunications engineering, control engineering and computer engineering. As technology advances the subfields of engineering multiply and adapt. Mechatronics' aim is a design process that unifies these subfields. Originally, mechatronics just included the combination of mechanics and electronics, hence the word is a combination of mechanics and electronics; however, as technical systems have become more and more complex the word has been broadened to include more technical areas.

The word "mechatronics" originated in Japanese-English and was created by Tetsuro Mori, an engineer of Yaskawa Electric Corporation. The word "mechatronics" was registered as trademark by the company in Japan with the registration number of "46-32714" in 1971. However, afterward the company released the right of using the word to public, and the word "mechatronics" spread to the rest of the world. Nowadays, the word is translated in each language and the word is considered as an essential term for industry.

French standard NF E 01-010 gives the following definition: “approach aiming at the synergistic integration of mechanics, electronics, control theory, and computer science within product design and manufacturing, in order to improve and/or optimize its functionality".

Many people treat "mechatronics" as a modern buzzword synonymous with "electromechanical engineering". However, other people draw a distinction between an "electromechanical component"—does not include a computer; an electro-mechanical computer (such as the Z4)—does not include an electronic computer; vs. a "mechatronic system"—a computer-controlled mechanical system, including both an electronic computer and electromechanical components.

English Medium Electrical and Electronics Engineering Program in China Universities

Electrical engineering is a field of engineering that generally deals with the study and application of electricity, electronics, and electromagnetism. This field first became an identifiable occupation in the latter half of the 19th century after commercialization of the electric telegraph, the telephone, and electric power distribution and use. Subsequently, broadcasting and recording media made electronics part of daily life. The invention of the transistor and, subsequently, the integrated circuit brought down the cost of electronics to the point where they can be used in almost any household object.

Electrical engineering has now subdivided into a wide range of subfields including electronics, digital computers, power engineering, telecommunications, control systems, RF engineering, signal processing, instrumentation, and microelectronics.
