Established by the Municipality of Shenzhen, the Southern University of Science and Technology is a publicly funded university in the Guangdong Province.
The SUSTech is a university dominated by science and engineering, combining part of characteristic humanities social sciences and management subjects.
The SUSTech cultivates quality talents with perfect personality, solid foundation, excellent ability, international view, social responsibility, innovative spirits and practical ability through the leading talent cultivation system on the basis of credit system, tutor system and college system and taking personalized, small class and international as features of talent cultivation.
The SUSTech has been determined as the experimental school of national higher education comprehensive reform. In April 2012, the Ministry of Education agreed to establish the school and give the school a great mission to explore the modern university system Chinese characteristics and training mode of innovative talents.
The Global Engagement Office (GEO) is responsible for forming and implementing a coherent strategy to promote the University’s international development and global profile.
SUSTech will adopt management mode of collegiate system for undergraduate students and create a wonderful college life for students by taking platforms such as college, Youth League Committee and communities as carriers.
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 SUSTech Education Foundation consists of board of directors, board of supervisors and secretariat. The board of directors is the top of the power structure of the foundation; the board of supervisors is responsible to check finance and accounting information in accordance with law and regulations; secretariat is the standing administrative unit of the foundation, which is responsible to the daily work of the foundation under the leading of leaders in the board of directors.
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.
