Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech) is a public university founded in the Shenzhen Special Economic Zone of China.
SUSTech offers an unparalleled learning and research experience at the scientific and technological frontiers.
SUSTech offers unprecedented opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students to work alongside the faculty to explore and tackle both fundamental and practical problems.
The Global Engagement Office (GEO) is responsible for forming and implementing a coherent strategy to promote the University’s international development and global profile.
The undergraduate admission of SUSTech adopts comprehensive evaluation enrollment mode based on national college entrance examination.The graduate admission of SUSTech currently adopts joint training mode.
The main duties of SUSTCEF is to accept the donations from the domestic and foreign associations, enterprises, trading companies and individuals, and establish the funding projects depending on the demands of the university and the wishes of the donors.
SUSTech partnered with Xuan Investment recently to host the "2017 Southern Science and Technology University - New Materials Technology Exchange Networking Conference", organised by the Department of Materials Science and Engineering and the Technology Transfer Center in the 110 lecture hall of the library.
The meeting attracted nearly 200 companies, representatives of investment institutions and related materials professionals, professors and scholars. They gathered to discuss about the development of new materials in the industry and university-enterprise cooperation.

After the talks, research results were presented to the audience including topics such as passive integration and electronic packaging with dielectric materials, thermal management materials, new challenges and system response program, lithium-ion battery research and development direction and focus, high-performance thermoelectric power generation devices and their applications, and so on. Around 10 high-quality projects were introduced in depth, capturing the attention and interest of the guests. Industry representatives were quick to raise questions and discuss in detail the types of applications that could be derived from them.
Currently, the global new materials industry is undergoing major changes, with a new round of scientific and technological advances opening up new opportunities. Advanced materials and information, energy, biological and other high-tech applications will accelerate the integration of big data and digital simulation technology, and the role of advanced materials will be crucial in these fields. The next five years constitute the implementation of "Made in China 2025" project, which consists of adjusting the industrial structure to promote the transformation and upgrading of the manufacturing sector in this critical period.
This event focused on the developing trends and innovation opportunities of advanced materials research and industry, and played a major role in connecting researchers from SUSTech and industry to build a cross-sector information exchange and resource platform.
