澳大與華南理工簽2+2聯合培養協議

The University of Macau (UM) and the South China University of Technology (SCUT) have signed an agreement on the launch of a '2+2' joint undergraduate programme, which will initially cover two disciplines, civil engineering, and telecommunication. This will be the first dual degree programme in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area. It is expected to serve as a good example of how universities in the Greater Bay Area can explore a new path for collaborative innovation in education. The admission process for the joint programme is expected to start in 2020. All registered undergraduate students currently studying at UM or SCUT are eligible to apply. Upon completing the first two years of study at either institution, students in the programme will study at the other university for another two years. They will receive bachelor's degrees from both universities upon completing the programme.

澳門大學與華南理工大學簽署本科生2+2聯合培養項目協議,為粵港澳大灣區高校合作首個雙向雙學位本科聯合培養計劃。此對粵港澳大灣區高校探索教育協同創新新路徑、開拓灣區人才培養新模式等方面具積極的示範意義。

兩校高度重視與大灣區知名學府交流與合作,充分利用地緣優勢加強彼此師生學術交流,以配合區域發展需求,打造多層次粵港澳新工科拔尖人才培養體系,同時推進大灣區聯合研發平台建設,為大灣區經濟社會創新發展提供強大引擎。2018年,兩校簽署了校級合作協議和學生交換計劃,在此基礎上,經過多次協商洽談,最終簽署了這一項目。

該計劃以土木和電信兩個學科領域為試點,面向兩校正式入讀的在冊在籍本科生招生,預計在2020年正式招生。學生在該校完成2年學習後,將赴對方高校進行為期2年的學習,完成相應培養計劃後可同時獲取兩校學士學位。

項目入選學生通過分階段接受內地和澳門的高等教育,能更好地理解兩地學科背景和市場需求,具備適應兩地經濟社會文化、解決相關領域專業問題的能力,成為大灣區乃至全國的稀缺專業人才。同時,項目實施也有利於灣區內高校共享高等教育資源,實現優勢互補,促進大灣區人才流動。
