Durham Tech welcomes delegation from Huaqiao University


On August 25, Durham Tech welcomed a delegation of 24 educators from Huaqiao University, Fujian Province, Quanzhou, China. The group was taking part in a symposium at Duke University entitled “Innovation and Management in Higher Education” and was interested in learning more about the community college system and, more specifically, Durham Tech’s applied and information technologies departments.

After being greeted by Dr. Ingram, Tim Woo, Mathematics and Electronics Engineering instructor, gave a presentation in his native language, Mandarin Chinese. He explained the basic structure of the community college system and answered questions concerning his specific program and about University Transfer and Financial Aid.

Tom Murphy, Assistant Dean of Information Technologies Programs, then spoke to the group about the many outstanding programs offered through our information technologies department, and answered additional questions about stackable credentials.

Bringing the presentations to a close, Patrick Coin, Assistant Dean of Applied Technologies Programs, spoke about each of the programs within Applied Technologies. He and Murphy then led the group on a tour of both the GlaxoSmithKline Technology Center and Newton Building industrial labs.

The group then continued on their way to UNC-Chapel Hill where they spent the afternoon learning about the university system of North Carolina.

This event was requested by Duke’s Executive Education Programs within the Duke Center for International Development at the Sanford School of Public Policy, and facilitated by David Kittrell in Durham Tech’s Center for the Global Learner.
