HEU Research Institute at Yantai/Postgraduate College starts Construction

The ground breaking ceremony for the HEU Research Institute at the  Yantai/Postgraduate College project was held on October 26th in the Bajiao area of the Yantai Economic and Technological Development Zone. Standing Committee of Yantai Municipal Party Committee, Minister of the United Front Department YU Yongxin, Secretary of the Working Committee of the Development Zone and Director of the Management Committee MOU Shuqing, and other leaders, HEU party secretary GU Huanmin, HEU President YAO Yu, and HEU Vice President HAN Duanfeng attended the ceremony.


The construction of Yantai Academy, a trinity of Institution + Postgraduate College + Civil-Military Integration Industrial Park, is an important carrier for HEU to serve the country's major needs and promote the integration of science and education and school-site cooperation. The academy is located in the Bajiao area of Yantai's Economic and Technological Development Zone, with a total planned land area of 1000 mu, of which 630 Mu is used by the research institution/postgraduate college. In accordance with the construction standards of internationalization, openness, research-orientation and high level, the academy will be closely tied to the Ocean Engineering positioning, focusing on the strategy of Made in China 2025 and Marine Power. The academy will make full use of government and market resources, carry out high-level research, high-level personnel training and transformation of high-quality civil-military integration results, along with striving to create a new type of innovation base with distinctive ship-sea characteristics and significant international influence. At the same time, taking the construction of the land-sea joint test site for ocean engineering equipment in the field of Ocean Engineering as the breakthrough point, and taking into account the frontier cross-cutting technology research, the academy has combined together functional ocean carriers, deep-sea fishery equipment, deep-sea resources development, new marine energy, marine chemical industry and new materials, high-performance special ships, intelligent manufacturing equipment and technology, marine information fusion technology and other research directions. Ultimately, the academy will be able to form a base (frontier cross technology innovation base), a site (land-sea joint test site for ocean engineering equipment), and several research centers.


Yantai is a strong manufacturing city in China, and its marine industry, chemical industry and nuclear power equipment play an important role in national strategy. Over the years, HEU and many enterprises and institutions in Yantai have maintained long-term and fruitful cooperation. In March 2017, the two sides signed a comprehensive strategic cooperation framework agreement based on the characteristics of the school's advantageous disciplines and personnel training as well as the needs of Yantai's economic and social development. In November of the same year, Yantai’s Economic and Technological Development Zone signed an implementation agreement with the school, and agreed to build Yantai Academy, a trinity of Institution + Postgraduate College + Civil-Military Integration Industrial Park.
