The collaborative course between SDUST and Western New England University (WNEU) began on 14th May this year. Professor Kenneth Y. Lee and Professor Hsiu-Jung Minday Chang, together with 15 WNEU students, came to SDUST the a one-month study program.


Two academic courses, Static and English Usage in Cultural Comparison, were taught in English by Lee and Chang to both WNEU students and SDUST students who were selected from the Civil Engineering Department and the English Language Department respectively.


This year marks the fifth anniversary of the collaborative course programme between the two universities, and is the first year when the programme was fully financed by China Scholarship Council (CSC). The Programme greatly enhanced the friendship between the two institutes, introduced quality educational resources to SDUST, and increased SDUST’s international cooperation and exchanges.
