ABOUT GDPST

Guangdong Polytechnic of Science and Technology (GDPST) is a full-time public higher vocational college approved by the Guangdong provincial government and registered with the Chinese Ministry of Education. At the very beginning of its establishment, GDPST was named Guangdong Institute of Further Education for Scientific and Technical Cadres, responsible for the continuing education of scientific and technical cadres in Guangdong Province, and known as “a jewel of local continuing education” by the Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology.In 1989, GDPST was renamed Guangdong Cadre College of Science and Technology and we became one of the first group of colleges in Guangdong province to provide general higher vocational education in 1996. We cooperated with the Zhuhai municipal government to build the Zhuhai campus in 2001, and in 2003, we turned from an adult college into a general college for higher education, and continued the work of scientific and technical cadres training. The management of GDPST was transferred from the Department of Science and Technology of Guangdong Province to the Department of Education of Guangdong Province in May 2008.

Under the leadership of the Party Committee and in the spirit of “honor integrity, develop competence, seek truth and pursue innovation”, teachers and students of GDPST have worked diligently and jointly to seize opportunities offered by the time to accelerate our development so that we will reach the standard of a first-rate college in China. In December 2008, we passed with honor the Ministry of Education’s Evaluation on the Training of Students of Higher Vocational College, and in 2010, we were awarded by the Guangdong Provincial Government the honorable title of Advanced Unit in Guangdong’s Vocational Education. GDPST was designated as a construction unit of “National Key College of Vocational Education” by the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Finance in 2010. Then in March 2016, we passed the evaluation and was recognized as a “National Key College of Vocational Education” in China.We were identified as a Exemplary College for “Internet plus” Innovation and Entrepreneurship, and as a construction unit of “the First-rate Vocational Colleges” by the Department of Education of Guangdong Province in July 2016 and November 2016 respectively.  In 2016 and 2017, we consecutively won the title “Top 50 Contributors to Social Service among National Vocational Colleges”.  In 2016, we were awarded the honorable title of “National Exemplary Vocational College of Innovation and Entrepreneurship” by the organizing committee of the International Innovation and Entrepreneurship Expo.

Large numbers of students apply for our college each year and we enroll around 8,000 students a year from 18 provinces in China. Students recruited from Guangdong province make our college their first choice in their applications. Our college has never ceased our efforts in carrying out an independent multi-mode enrollment system, which includes the cohesive program of secondary and higher vocational education, the “3+2” pattern (i.e. Three-year study in secondary vocational school and two-year study in higher vocational college) and the modern apprenticeship program. Our graduates are very popular with companies and industries with an employment rate of over 98 percent.

We have established long-term cooperation with well-established corporations, such as Microsoft China, Apple, Cisco, Huawei, Lenovo, Kingsoft, Bluedon, Xiaomi, FAW-Volkswagen, Chimelong Hengqin, and SANY Marine Heavy Industry as a way to develop students’ technical and practical skills.

In order to carry out the strategy of “going global” and serve the requirements of “The Belt and Road Initiative” and the construction of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area, GDPST vigorously promotes a new pattern of opening up, strengthening exchange and cooperation with countries like Germany and France, and China’s Taiwan who are known for their developed vocational education. In 2013, we have been one of the first vocational colleges to be granted by the Ministry of Education the rights to send our graduates to colleges in Taiwan so that they can obtain an undergraduate degree there. In 2017, we are qualified to recruit international students, and hence we signed cooperative agreements with world-renowned universities like Groupe ESC Clermont in France and Dresden University of Technology in Germany. Now our first International Management Class with ESC Clermont has already been kicked off.

We make moral education a fundamental task of our college, vigorously carrying out the education of socialist core values, emphasizing the improvement of students’ integrative quality and giving full play to the function of cultural education so as to build a campus culture with scientific, technological, innovative, righteous and harmonious features. All this will lead to the combination of cultural education and talent cultivation. We have carried out extracurricular activities featured by Campus Scientific Innovation Festival and Campus Festival of Culture and Art. Various measures have been taken to promote traditional Chinese culture, innovation and entrepreneurial culture. For example, we hold GDPST forums of innovation and entrepreneurship, and offer various campus activities such as the Contest of Innovation & Entrepreneurship and the Festival of Science and Technology, which cover the themes of “Internet Plus”, of “promoting the traditional culture of Guangdong, and upgrading the integrative ability of college students”, which also contribute to the overall development of our students. In addition, our college, relying on the Activity Week of Vocational Education, introduces science and technology, arts, sports and law into communitiesand provides volunteer work through our students to promote the construction of a better city. In those large-scale events like the China Import and Export Fair (Canton Fair), China (Zhuhai) International Aviation and Aerospace Exposition, and China ( Hengqin at Zhuhai) Circus Festival, our students are the main force of volunteers, working as interpreters, receptionists, coordinators, traffic guiders consultants, and so on. All these have not only improved the students’ capabilities, but also won wide acclaim from the community.

Under the motto of “Honor Integrity, Develop Competence, Seek Truth and Pursue Innovation” and in accordance with the philosophy of “Pursuing Excellency, Distinction and Innovation”, we are committed to building a national first-rate and internationally known leading vocational college that produces quality talents well-accepted by the society, provides satisfactory social services and plays a more eminent exemplary role in China.
