the first day of term for the students

Fanfare September, 5th, 2005, 8.00 a.m., first day of term: the 108 students of the first year from Ecole Centrale of Beijing, of which a third of girls, began their education at Beihang University. This engineering school has been created in 16 months on the request of the Chinese Education Ministry with the assistance of the French Ministries of Education and Foreign Affairs, the honour committee of the year of France in China and the Foundation Nicole Bru.

The success of the recruitment exceeded all the hopes of the persons in charge of the project: the requests were numerous (for 10 places available for pekinese high-school pupils, 80 students from the two best high-schools of Beijing applied) and the level is excellent. This education is a real first opportunity for a sino-european partnership since it trains the students from their "Baccalauréat" (GaoKao) to their engineer diploma.

The intensive 6-year training (3 years of "classes préparatoires" and 3 years of engineer studies) prepares high level engineers, polyvalent, trilingual (Chinese, English and French) who will have quickly high responsibilities in companies either in China or in France.
