Guilin University of Technology Attends Signing Ceremony for University-Level Exchange Agreement

On October 28, 2015, Prof. Xie Qinglin, President of Guilin University of Technology (China), visited Kumamoto University with three other delegates to attend the signing ceremony for a university-level exchange agreement.


Since Kumamoto University’s Faculty of Engineering and the Graduate School of Science and Technology concluded a department-level exchange agreement with Guilin University of Technology in 1999, both parties have promoted researcher and student exchanges. The two universities have now entered into a university-level exchange agreement to expand these exchanges to other faculties.


President Xie and President Shinji Harada signed the agreement at the signing ceremony and concluded with a firm handshake. This new agreement will expand the scope of the program to the entire university and further strengthen the ties between the two institutions.


In advance of the signing ceremony, the delegates visited the Graduate School of Science and Technology and exchanged views on student exchanges and the possibility of joint research. The universities agreed to deepen their friendly relationship.
