GDUT and Huawei are deeply connected when it comes to the integration of industry and education. As early as 2020, our school became the first batch of 72 contracted universities in China under the “Smart Base” program initiated by the Ministry of Education and Huawei. We are now grown to be a demonstration project of the Huawei “Smart Base” program across higher education institutions.
