Recently, an agreement specifying a mode of co-cultivation system for PhD students majoring in aeronautical engineering among Beihang University, Polytechnic University of Turin and Bauman Moscow State Technical University was sighed. The three universities strive to pioneer a novel way of co-cultivating aeronautical talents with international vision and competitiveness.
As is proposed in the program, the recommended students will be co-supervised by the three sides, conduct their research based on the consensus of their different supervisors and be cultivated by the three universities in turns. The qualified students who complete the project will be awarded with a co-cultivation certification by the three universities. In particular, the students of Beihang or Polytechnic University of Turin who meet all the graduation requirements will receive the doctoral degrees granted by the two universities.
Based on long-term partnerships among the three sides, the program is supported by the Top Industrial Managers for Europe (T.I.M.E.) Association. It combines and offers high-quality educational resources in China, Italy and Russia, aiming to innovate new models of talents cultivation in astronautical engineering featuring international vision and competitiveness.
Polytechnic University of Turin
Founded in 1859, Polytechnic University of Turin is among Europe's leading universities for science and engineering. It is ranked 47th in the category of Engineering & Technology and 30th in the category of Mechanical Engineering in 2020 QS World University Rankings.
Bauman Moscow State Technical University
Bauman Moscow State Technical University, one of the oldest and most prestigious Russian technical universities, was founded in 1830. Many outstanding scientists and engineers such as Korolev, the father of the Soviet space program as well as famous aircraft designers Sukhoi and Tupolev, are alumni of the university.
