of Applied Science and Technology located in Bavaria, and carried in-depth

discussion with Waldemar Berg, the vice president in charge of teaching and student

out that Degendorf University attaches great importance to application of teaching

and research, focuses on deepening the cooperation between schools and enterprises

and setting up majors based on local industrial structure and regional characteristics.

During the talent cultivation, whether it is in-class teaching, practical teaching or

thesis project selection, it emphasizes the combination with local economy and the

cultivation of applied personnel, serving local economy and promoting technological

innovation. At present, Degendorf University has carried out in-depth university-

enterprise collaborative education with more than 400 large, medium and

small-sized enterprises from region, home and abroad. He stressed that most of their

teachers have abundant industry and enterprise experience, which is the guarantee

for the implementation of the application-oriented education and the quality of

personnel training. Apart from that, in order to ensure the consistency of teaching

concept and quality, Degendorf University would organize training in teaching

methods and ethics for new-appointed teachers. Further, Degendorf University of

Applied Science and Technology has built up collaborative partnerships with 170

universities in 54countries. Now there are about 1500 international students,

accounting for about 20% of the total number of students.

Science and Technology, and briefed current situation of Huizhou City and Huizhou

University. He stated that the school running and developing of HZU lay stress on

locality, application and internationalization, which is similar to Degendorf University

of Applied Science and Technology. At present, HZU is in the critical period of

application-oriented transformation. Degendorf University has accumulated rich

experience in teaching, faculty management, process control, university-enterprise

collaboration and other aspects, which are good examples for HZU to learn from.

In 2018, HZU sent 10 teachers to Degendorf University to carry out deep exchange

learning, which played a positive role in shifting teaching concepts, promoting

awareness, stimulating school development and elevating the quality of applied

talent cultivation. At the forum, combined with their actual work, administrators

of Academic Affairs Office, Scientific Research Management Department, Personnel

Department and International Affairs Department also held deep discussions with

German representatives. The delegation also visited the classroom, laboratory in

This visit would not only help us deepen the communication between HZU and

German universities, but also further deepen our understanding and

comprehending in German “double dual” education system, applied talent cultivation

mode, faculty management, in-depth university-enterprise integration, which will

further promote internationalization of HZU.
