The main events of the festivities were an official celebration ceremony and a gala show that took place on October 27 in the indoor stadium on SUES’s main campus in the Songjiang district of Shanghai. On the day before, SUES organized an “International Forum on Higher Engineering Education”, where Prof. Artinger gave the opening speech on the topic of “Co-operative Education in Cultivating Engineering Talent: Exploration and Praxis“.

Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences (HsKA) and Shanghai University of Engineering Science have been partners since 2015, when an agreement on international cooperation was concluded between the two universities, allowing in particular for the exchange of students. In the current winter semester of 2018/19, six SUES students are studying in Karlsruhe, whereas one HsKA student is conducting a study abroad semester at SUES.
