Experimental Practicing Base

As a national key university, Xidian University, following the concept of promoting reform and development based on Opening Up, has actively expanded its communication and cooperation with a large number of universities and institutions in France, America, Japan and Britain. Meanwhile, a large number of international talents who have international view, are familiar with international rules and can participate in international affairs and competition. By now, it has set up partnership and established joint laboratories with numerous international famous enterprises and state-level high-tech enterprise groups, such as Huawei Technology Co. Ltd., ZTE, Intel, Microsoft, IBM, and Hollysys Automation Technologies Ltd., which has greatly promoted its international talents cultivation to a new stage.

Facing with urgent needs of inculcation of  values both from abroad and at home and adapting to demands of employers of source countries, Xidian gives full play of its advantages in both disciplines and collaboration with  enterprises to provide unique personnel training to each student (recruitment-cultivation-employment) based on his/her own needs. In order to cultivate students’ initiative learning and promote their comprehensive capability in design and innovation, School has gradually formed a diversified and characteristic independent-interactive teaching method which well integrates four aspects of study, i.e. theoretical studies, participation in practical activities, sills training, and innovation. Meanwhile, four core areas, namely situational teaching, problem-based teaching, discussion-based teaching and encouraging evaluation are emphasized in class.

Xidian University attaches great importance to building a faculty team for high-level oversea students. We have established a strict system to select supervisors for oversea master and doctoral students. A“Dual Module” is available for cultivating students, namely, a module of “International Education School+Professional Schools”. In this module, research activities are carried out based on faculty teams. Students are encouraged to participate in their supervisor’s research projects to train advanced innovative talents demanded by enterprises.

Practicing Bases on Campus

Xidian University has many national and provincial demonstration centers for experimental teaching, including Electrical and Electronic Experimental Teaching Center, Training Center for Comprehensive Engineering, Experimental Teaching Center for Telecommunications and Information Engineering, Experimental Teaching Center for Integrated Circuit, Experimental Teaching Center for Economic Administration. In addition, with the consideration of students’ developmental features and the labor market demands, International Education School with Enterprises and other universities has established many practicing stations on campus, such as Xidian-Holly Sys Joint Laboratory, Innovative Practicing Bases of Telecommunications and Information Engineering for Oversea Students, and Innovative Practicing Bases of Embedded System Design for Oversea Students. Students can participate in innovative practicing activities in these bases.

Practicing Bases Off-Campus

International Education School has built many practicing platforms outside campus with Huawei Technology Co.Ltd., Zhongxing Telecommunication Equipment Corporation (ZTE), China Electronics Import and Export Corporation (CEIEC), Hollysys Automation Technologies Ltd., Neoway Technology Group, Xi’an Air-force Ordance Repair Factory, Northwest Machinery Co. Ltd, Xidian Group and many other advanced enterprises in IT industry. Such examples are Xidian-CETC Joint Training Base for Oversea Students, and Xidian-ZTE Joint Training Base for Oversea Students.
