The foundation of SZTU is a crucial measurement in exploring application-oriented higher education at or above undergraduate level. The successful official establishment of SZTU cannot be achieved without the great help and support from the Ministry of Education and Shenzhen government. It cannot be done without all SZTU faculty’s enormous efforts and dedication. SZTU will move forward and explore a new education mode of applied sciences by joining efforts between industries and universities, between production and teaching and also between practice and learning.
