In response to the latest demand and trend of industrial innovation and technological revolution, and to serve the development strategy of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, the College of Urban Transportation and Logistics aims to cultivate advanced applied talents in the field of urban transportation and logistics by exploring a model of “degree education + work placement + project participation”.
Keeping up with the forefront of the industry and combining multiple disciplines, the College currently offers bachelor’s degrees in Transportation, Vehicle Engineering, Automotive Service Engineering, and Logistics Management, as well as master’s degrees in Transportation and Mechanical Engineering. It plans to have over 1,500 registered students in the near future. The College has been drawing on experience from German universities of applied science, introducing established and acclaimed courses, working closely with the large enterprises in Shenzhen, and cultivating highly qualified talents to fit the precise needs of industries through a “3+1+x” model. In terms of discipline system and talent training, it will highlight interdisciplinary education and deepen the integration between basic sciences and technological sciences. It also plans to build high-level teaching and research centers in six related fields of science and engineering, including transportation, vehicle mechatronics, machine intelligence, manufacturing, logistics management and full lifecycle automotive services.
