Zhejiang University of Technology (ZJUT) was established in 1953 and is a comprehensive research-intensive university co-supported by Zhejiang Provincial Government and the Ministry of Education of China. The College of Mechanical Engineering is one of the oldest and largest colleges at Zhejiang University of Technology.

Huzhou University is located in North Zhejiang Province’s Huzhou City, a national historical and cultural city, where President Xi Jinping’s philosophy that “lush mountains and lucid waters are invaluable assets” was originated, and where the idea of Beautiful Countryside started. Its history dated back to the year of 1916 when the Qiantang Dao set up the No. 3 Teachers’ Training School. In March 1999, Huzhou University was founded by consolidating three former colleges and schools: Huzhou Normal Junior College, Huzhou Teacher’s School and Huzhou Teacher’s Training School. In May 2000, former Huzhou Medical School was merged into the newly founded university.

To strengthen cooperation between UM and universities in mainland, CCE and BRTC are continuing to provide training programs for college students in the future.
