Effort to cultivate talents with practical knowledge and skills
The rapid and healthy development of the college is largely contributed to the scheduled policy of cultivating talent with practical knowledge and skills. We clearly declare on the first day of opening ceremony that the college aims to cultivate the talents of practical knowledge and skills of the educational background of regular undergraduate courses. Generally speaking, we emphasize the pursuit of harmony in improvement of knowledge, ability and quality, taking knowledge learning as the base and ability development as key points. On a more detailed level, we make sure to develop students’ abilities in the application of professional knowledge, English and computer skills, abilities in interpersonal interaction and in innovation. Practical ability is also of major concern of the specialties, curriculums, teaching items, and teaching process. As a result, we set up the Committee of City College for Cooperation of Learning & Research & Production soon after this college was established. With many Teaching Bases established, we have carefully made arrangements for students to take part in the social practice, and make great efforts to provide opportunities for students to carry out teaching practicum and graduation practicum.
The backbone of the management personnel of the college are all from ZhejiangUniversity, most of whom are of progressive thinking for school operation as well as of international vision due to years of influence from the academic culture of ZhejiangUniversity. On the first day that the college was established in 1999, the college leader stated that the teaching idea is to make the students the main focus while pursuing to carry out education with open, practical, diversified and innovative features. With China’s accession to the WTO, foreign colleges and universities have taken great effort to get shares in the educational market of China. ZhejiangUniversity CityCollege becomes their first target, which adopts a flexible system and integrates a large number of students of high quality as well as good financial background.
The college leaders have decided to adopt the internationalization development strategy to meet the current situation and to nurture development opportunities. Over just the past several years, we have set up five cooperative projects with three universities in two foreign countries, and have been carrying out exchanges of teachers, students, and management personnel with higher institutions in Singapore and Hong Kong. We have currently 20 overseas partners, closely collaborating in the process of education internationalization.
ZhejiangUniversity CityCollege has made great achievements since its establishment 6 years ago. Prospecting the future, we can see both opportunities and challenges. The college will continuously further educational and instructive reforms through the innovation of both schooling system and administrative system, for the purpose of improving the overall educational quality and also schooling features, to make the college become a dynamic, characteristic, top-ranking comprehensive college oriented to the needs of economic globalization and development of modern cities.
