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.

On May 15, Academician Zhang Tongyi from the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) delivered a guest lecture on the rapidly developing field of materials informatics, which was hosted by SUSTech Fellow Yu Dapeng.
Having been a CAS Fellow for seven years, Zhang is also the Dean of Materials Genome Institute at Shanghai University. His research focuses on materials informatics, material thermodynamics, nano-mechanics, micromechanics, microbridge test, phase-field simulation, the stress of solid surface, and mechanical properties of materials.
From Zhang’s perspective, the focal points of materials informatics are:
Zhang Tongyi stressed that the development of materials informatics required materials database, which is in great need of financial aid from the national government and other related departments as well as open sharing of data from materials researchers.
