Dortmund Competence Center for University-Industry Cooperation with China

The aim of the project is to set up the Dortmund Competence Centre China (DoKoChi), mainly for the stakeholders in the Ruhr area, but also for those interested at NRW and federal level, as a pool of the existing competences and to build up new competences with one clear thematic focus : University cooperation with China.

The FH Dortmund structures the topic, like the different levels of the University of Applied Sciences model, into three relevant project fields:

1. Cooperation in practice-oriented bachelors education through the development of corresponding study programs (and universities) in China (Transnational Education TNB), recruiting of students in China, exchange of teachers and students and double degrees in close cooperation with companies. There are concrete projects with the Shenzhen Polytechnic / Guangdong, the Chien Shiung Institute of Technology (CSI) in Taicang / Jiangsu (> 250 German companies) and possibly other colleges in preparation.

2. Integration of Chinese universities with an application-oriented profile into the Masters cooperations of the FH Dortmund in line with the concept of the Master School. These are strategic university partnerships with exchange programs, joint study programs (eg summer schools, conferences) and double degrees. The aim is to cooperate with the Shanghai University of Engineering Science (SUES).

3. Joint application-oriented research and development (R & D, such as 2 + 2) with a clear focus on transfer to business. The aim is strategic cooperation of the R & D networks and organisations in the Ruhr area and in China. Topics are above all digitisation, production technology and logistics, as well as mobility and energy, in addition biomedical engineering in the future.

The FH Dortmund addresses these topics with a three-step China strategy:

Stage 1: Building strategic partnerships and strengthening our own competences in cooperation with China and in capacity building.

Stage 2: Establish a structured exchange of students, teachers and staff in close collaboration with business partners. The purpose of this is the creation of joint courses of study or degrees up to the establishment of joint higher education institutions (TNB, branch campus).

Stage 3: Setting up your own China-related course offerings, for example in the form of special courses, specialisations or cooperative study formats.
