Jiangxi University of Science and Technology (JUST), one of the leading universities in
, is the important base for tertiary education for the Province. With its early history traceable to 1958, the University has been growing more and more prominent since it was given the current name in 2004 by the Ministry of Education.
Since the administering of foreign affairs plays a significant role in a university’s academic achievement, JUST has been making sustained efforts to strengthen its international exchanges and cooperation so as to explore the internationalization of education, to intensify its educational reform, to reinforce its faculty, and to enhance the diversity and preferability of the education it offers.
JUST pays persistent attention to its foreign affairs. It began in 1982 to assign a few staff members to take care of the affairs, and then set up its Foreign Affairs Office in 1989. In the same year, as a result of the reform of the University’s organizational structure, the Foreign Affairs Office was renamed Division of International Exchange and Cooperation.
Much progress has been made in recent years in JUST’s international affairs. The University was recognized in 1994 by the Education Commission of Jiangxi for its “outstanding work for drawing talented teachers.” From 1998 up to the present, 85 long- or short-term foreign experts and teachers have been engaged to work at the University, three of whom won the “Lushan Award” granted by Jiangxi Provincial Government to recognize their outstanding work. Achievements have also been made in the University’s international academic exchanges and collaborative researches. Along with the ever increasing international exchange and cooperation activities, more and more university leaders, experts and scholars from different countries and regions have visited JUST to promote academic exchanges. The University has received over 400 visitors from abroad, and sent over 200 JUST people to go abroad since 1990. By now, JUST has established cooperative and exchange relations with more than 20 institutions of higher learning, research institutions and educational administrative machineries in a dozen countries including
Looking ahead, with the determination to promote its international exchanges through every possible means, JUST is making greater efforts to gather international talents, to introduce advanced teaching ideas and administrative experiences, and to absorb funds, facilities and academic materials from abroad. All in all, the University is endeavoring to create a new prospect of multi-channeled, multi-leveled and all-round international exchanges and cooperation, so as to build itself into a top-level university devoted to both education and research.
