- Strong Partner Universities
The University of Houston is the third largest higher learning institution in Texas, and is Carnegie-rated top research university. The Cullen College of Engineering was recently ranked at No. 66 on the list of 2021-2022 Best Schools of Engineering by U.S. News & World Report. Several of its engineering programs were honored as 2021-2022 Top Engineering Programs in the United States at the same time. The Master of Science in Subsea Engineering in the Department of Mechanical Engineering is the first of its kind in the US. The Cullen College of Engineering boasts one of the most outstanding teaching and research teams in the world, and its faculty roster includes 15 members of the National Academy of Engineering.
- Distinctive Programs
The three programs offered by the Institute are highly compatible with the marine engineering equipment manufacturing industry, in direct response to China’s marine resources development strategic initiatives. By introducing UH’s top educational and teaching resources and combining them with DMU’s professional advantages, the two schools join forces to jointly cultivate international talents in three professional directions for the development of the marine engineering technology and the equipment industry in China.
- International Joint Education
The Institute features a large number of high-quality faculty from UH, and has selected the very best DMU professors to lead the curricula. More than one third of the specialized courses in these programs are directed by UH professors, some of whom are members of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), editors-in-chief of well-known engineering journals, Fulbright scholars, and foreign experts from the national base for the 111 Program. The DMU teachers include both experts and professors with profound theories and outstanding scientific research ability. The combined approach of DMU and UH will maximize the strengths of both sides and enable students to take advantage of the best of both worlds.
- International Education Standards
The Institute integrates educational resources and cultural features from both China and the United States, absorbs UH advanced educational ideas, and cultivates students' abilities for independent thinking, innovation and creativity. For specialized courses, we teach students in English only and in small classes, and use a discussion-based teaching method. The training plan independently formulated is in line with international standards. In order to ensure that the students can adapt to the English-only teaching environment, they will receive intensive English learning when they are freshmen, and will also learn the similarities and differences between Chinese and foreign cultures, cross-cultural communication and other courses to develop their international visions and competitiveness.
