CTGU has already established cooperative relationships with 45 universities in the foreign countries such as France, Germany, the Netherlands, the United States, Canada, Japan, South Korea, Australia, the United Kingdom, and so on. The cooperations extend to teaching, scientific research and student exchanges. So far, the cooperations have greatly improved scientific research and talent cultivation.
CTGU puts stress on the development of the key disciplines and key laboratories, improves its organizational structure, and eventually forms five subject groups including hydroelectric energy engineering, hazard protection and environment, information technology and control engineering, the Three Gorges culture and tourism, and life science and biological technology.
