On Monday 25 June, Associate Dean Barclay Morrison from Columbia University’s School of Engineering led a delegation including Associate Professor Lance C. Kam and Senior Lecturer Aaron Matthew Kyle from Columbia University’s Department of Biomedical Engineering.
The delegation met with Dean Xu Zhenghe from SUSTech’s College of Engineering, Founding Chair Guo Xiangdong, Chair Jiang Xingyu and Acting Chair Chen Fangyi from the Department of Biomedical Engineering, along with teachers from the Department of Biomedical Engineering for an informal discussion.
Dean Xu Zhenghe welcomed Barclay Morrison and his delegation. He introduced the wide range of cooperations and exchanges that SUSTech takes part in with other famous universities around the world, including MIT and UBC. Senior Lecturer Aaron Matthew Kyle introduced the capstone course of biomedical engineering at Columbia University, and both sides talked about jointly training students, cooperating on teaching research and other areas of cooperation between SUSTech and Columbia University.
Later, Associate Dean Barclay Morrison and his team were taken to the teaching laboratories at the Department of Biomedical Engineering and provided one-on-one guidance about the core courses in the Department.
In 2016, when the Department of Biomedical Engineering was established, both universities signed a Memorandum of Understanding between the Schools of Engineering, around academic cooperation and exchange. The two Departments of Biomedical Engineering would reach a consensus on a variety of issues, including student training, student communication, and curriculum guidance. The exchange would further promote the development of cooperation between the two Schools of Engineering and Departments of Biomedical Engineering.
