About SCUT

South China University of Technology (SCUT) is a leading public research-intensive educational institution in China. Located in Guangzhou, a thriving metropolis in the Pan Pearl River Delta Economic Area and the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area in South China, it is now one of the 36 Class-A universities under the Chinese Ministry of Education (MoE)’s national Double First Class University Plan.

SCUT is a comprehensive research university with particular strengths in engineering, sciences, medicine, business, economics, humanities, law and other disciplines. According to Clarivate Analytics, its number of disciplines listed in the ESI global top 1‰ is tied for 8th place nationwide. 

About GZIC

On March 15, 2017, the agreement of constructing the Guangzhou International Campus(GZIC) of SCUT was signed by four parties: the Ministry of Education (MoE) of the People’s Republic of China, Guangdong provincial government, Guangzhou municipal government and SCUT.

It is the first and only campus that MoE cooperates with the university and the local governments to build a world-class university in cooperation with top overseas universities. The campus aims to drive innovation and serve the country through education and research activities, as well as contribute to the development of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.

Located on the south bank of Guangzhou International Innovation City, GZIC covers an area of 110 hectares. The first-phase campus has already opened since September 2019, and the remainder is marked for completion by the end of 2021. The total investment of the campus is estimated to exceed 20 billion RMB. Upon completion, the campus will enroll about 12,000 students and employ 1,600 staff.

In line with SCUT’s strength in engineering, the Guangzhou International Campus will focus on disciplines such as intelligent manufacturing, biological medicine, advanced materials, ecological environment, AI and other emerging engineering and interdisciplinary fields.

Ten new engineering schools and a host of cross disciplinary research institutes will be setup on the campus. So far, four schools have been established, namely, the School of Biomedical Sciences and Engineering, the Shien-Ming Wu School of Intelligent Engineering, the School of Molecular Science and Engineering, and the School of Microelectronics.

The schools offer undergraduate, master, and doctoral programs. Enrollment for graduate students has started since September 2018, while undergraduate enrollment began in September 2019 in the fields of biomedical engineering, robotics engineering, intelligent manufacturing engineering, molecular science and engineering, and microelectronics science and engineering.
