Beihang University (also known as BUAA) was founded in 1952, with the merger of the aeronautical departments from eight top Chinese universities. With this it became the first university focused on aeronautics and astronautics in China and was recognized as one of China’s 16 key universities. From that time on the government of China has made support of Beihang University a priority. The university is currently a member of a very select group of top Chinese universities supported by the National “Double World Class” Project, which aims to develop world-class universities in China. Since its foundation, Beihang has developed into a leading research university in terms of the quality of its teaching programs, research undertaken at the university and the attainment of its scholars. The university currently has about 2,000 faculty members, including over 500 full professors. Among them are 23 members of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Chinese Academy of Engineering. In recent years, Beihang has concentrated on building up a truly international faculty body and has attracted a significant number of top international academics and scientists who work as full-time or visiting professors of the university.

The UNIVERSITAT POLITÈCNICA DE VALÈNCIA (UPV) is a dynamic, innovative public institution, dedicated to research and teaching that keeps strong bonds with the social environment in which its activities are performed and, simultaneously has an important presence abroad. UPV is a University that attracts the best students and trains professionals with a recognised, prestigious level of excellence which is highly valued by local and international employers. UPV is an entrepreneurial University, with effective mechanisms for the dissemination of scientific and technological results, and which excels in the training of researchers and in the creation of technology-based companies. The UPV is a young institution.The seed of what is today known as the Universitat Politècnica de València was planted in the academic year 1968-1969, when the Higher Polytechnic Institute of Valencia was created. At that time it comprised four schools: the School of Agricultural Engineering, founded in 1959; the School of Architecture, inaugurated in 1966; the School of Civil Engineering and the School of Industrial Engineering, both of them created in 1968. At present, the Universitat Politècnica de Valencia (UPV) community is made up of over 41.000 people. Of these, more than 36.000 are students, 2.843 are members of the teaching and research staff and 2396 are administrative and services staff. UPV is composed of 13 schools. THE CITY. Valencia can be a city of clichés: the light, the moon, the gun-powder, the paella, the beaches, the flowers, the fallas… they are keys which attempt to explain what words cannot tell. It is necessary to visit and get to know Valencia to verify that centenary traditions live together with modernity; that sea and city are compatible; that the green colour of farms can be kept together with a modern urban scheme; that Valencia is unique at night and during the day. But the capital of the river Turia is more than that. In addition to the innumerable attractions which the city has had for years, now there is a series of showy infrastructures such as the Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias and the Museo Príncipe Felipe which, as they are located in this environment, are linked to culture. Valencia has put the icing on the cake, although it will not have a rest and will go on decorating its succulent presentation.

The Faculty of Engineering at Lund University, Lunds Tekniska Högskola or “LTH” in Swedish , is among the leading engineering faculties in Europe, with more than 7000 undergraduates and 800 postgraduates. Founded in 1961, as an independent institute, it today belongs to Lund University, which is one of Scandinavia’s largest institutions for education and research with 41 000 students and 5000 employees. LTH is one of few complete engineering faculties in Sweden. Besides the traditional engineering programmes we offer architecture, industrial design and fire safety engineering. The research carried is of high international standard and is world-leading in several areas, such as nano-technology, combusting engineering and mobile communications, water resources, automatic control, laser physics and biotechnology. Thanks to the fact that LTH belongs to a large university, cooperation between different disciplines is stimulated in a unique way. Consequently, LTH is recognized for its cross disciplinary research, e.g. between the medical and technical sciences. LTH has close contact to business life. Ideon, Sweden’s first Research Park, is our neighbour. Moreover, international companies as Alfa Laval, Ericsson, Gambro and Tetra Pak are based in Lund.

Turkey

ITU was established in 1773, during the time of the Ottoman Sultan Mustafa III. With its original name “Muhendishane-i Bahr-i Humayun”, The Royal School of Naval Engineering, its responsibility was to educate chart masters and ship builders. In 1795, the “Muhendishane-i Berr-i Humayun”, The Royal School of Military Engineering, was established to educate the technical staff in the army. In 1847, education in the field of architecture was also introduced. Established in 1883, the School of Civil Engineering assumed the name “Engineering Academy”, with the aim of teaching essentials skills needed in planning and implementing the country’s new infrastructure projects. Gaining university status in 1928, the Engineering Academy continued to provide education in the fields of engineering and architecture until it was incorporated into ITU in 1944. Finally, in 1946, ITU became an autonomous university which included the Faculties of Architecture, Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Electrical and Electronic Engineering. With a history stretching back over 227 years, providing technical education within a modern educational environment and strong academic staff, ITU is strongly identified with architectural and engineering education in Turkey. Since its inception and foundation under Ottoman rule, ITU has constantly lead the way in reform movements, and in the latter era of the Republic of Turkey, ITU has assumed pivotal roles in the reconstruction, modernization, and administration of the country. The efforts and expertise of ITU graduates have been major contributors in the planning and construction of Turkey’s roads, bridges, dams, factories, buildings, energy plants, communication networks, villages and cities. ITU is a state university which defines and continues to update methods of engineering and architecture in Turkey. It provides its students with modern educational facilities while retaining traditional values, as well as using its strong international contacts to mould young, talented individuals who can compete in the global arena.
