Courses and Degrees 专业 & 学位
The purpose of the DLI is to advance the exchange of culture, science, engineering and technology between China and the United Kingdom, promoting the development of education in both countries and facilitating academic collaboration between Dalian University of Technology and the University of Leicester.
The Institute focuses on introducing the educational resources and curriculum of the University of Leicester in the areas of Physical Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics and adheres to the principle that Chinese-foreign joint education shall benefit the public interest. The DLI will cultivate professional level practical science and engineering skills in an internationalised environment, allowing students to study with the English language medium of instruction and to develop science and engineering knowledge.
Award of Degrees
In order to successfully graduate from the DLI, students are required to meet the degree granting standards of Dalian University of Technology and the University of Leicester. Upon graduation, the successful students will be awarded a “Bachelor Degree Certificate" and an "Undergraduate Graduation Diploma” from Dalian University of Technology and a "Bachelor" degree from the University of Leicester giving them a real edge in the graduate labour market in China, the UK and the rest of the world.
The courses are taught in English by academic staff from the UK and China, integrating an intensive English Language course within the first year of each four-year degree for DLI enrolled students.
Chemistry is the fundamental cornerstone for many economically important industries today, which means the demand for high quality chemistry graduates is growing. The Leicester course provides students with substantial hands-on, practical work and has been designed to equip graduates with the skills and expertise needed to make new discoveries that can deliver advances in fields such as health and medicine, energy and the environment, materials and technology or food and agriculture.
BEng Mechanical Engineering
This degree has been designed to develop specific expertise and skills in mechanisms and vibrations, structures, mechanical materials, fluid dynamics and thermodynamics. The degree highlights the way mechanical engineering now relies on powerful computer-aided design, prototyping, manufacturing tools and the use of composite materials.
Today Mathematics has become almost a pre-requisite for life given the introduction of big data. Understanding mathematics is integral to designing new aircraft or providing tomorrow's weather forecast, and graduates can find themselves employed in areas as diverse as high energy physics and economic forecasting. Mathematical expertise – including algebra, mathematical computing, topology and actuarial science – will be developed throughout the course with a wide range of specialist modules on offer.
