An intensive language course sponsored by the German Academic Exchange Service took place at UPB in August 2019. As in previous years, the Summer School 2019 was accompanied by many cultural and mechanical engineering events.
A delegation of three CDTF representatives from Qingdao University of Science and Technology visited the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering at Paderborn University from January 08 - 11, 2019. Prof. Zhichao Qu
Intercultural communication is omnipresent in our everyday lives. Often, we do not even recognize it and generalizations manifest themselves favoring (mostly) negative preconceptions and wrong conclusions. "Germans do not respect their parents - when they are old, they let them live by themselves!" Provocative statements like this were presented to students participating in the workshop "Intercultural communication" on December 01, 2012, to get
Am 08.11.2018 konnten CDTF Studierende bei einer Stadtrallye abseits vom Unialltag spielerisch wichtige Orte in Paderborn kennenlernen. Die Stadtrallye startete am Eingang vom P1 Gebäude und verlief über das Paderquellgebiet zum Paderborner Dom und abschließend zum historischen Rathaus. Unterwegs warteten viele kleine Aufgaben auf die Studierenden. Die Aufgaben mussten sie meist in der Gruppe lösen.
A Bachelor's or Master's degree from Paderborn University in mechanical engineering and their good German language skills are the best prerequisites for CDTF students to start a career at Volkswagen in China. Niu Chunjie, her colleagues Jens Wick and Hong Yu (photo 3rd, 4th from the right and 4th from the left) of the recruiting team Volkswagen Automatic Transmission in Dalian (VW ATD) presented the factory
From the initial tentative approaches during the mid 1990ies to today's broad development in the faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Dr. Josef Noeke significantly co-designed the cooperation of the two universities in Qingdao and Paderborn. In Qingdao, over the years he prepared almost 600 Chinese students in pre-departure seminars for the subsequent studies in Paderborn. In cooperation with instructors at both university locations
University management of both universities, Qingdao and Paderborn, convened for the tenth meeting of the CDTF board of trustees at the end of September in the partner city at the Yellow Sea; they were joined by representatives of those faculties involved in the university cooperation. Chinese and German coordinators reported to the board of directors about the exchange of students up to now. About 600 CDTF students, whose language skills h
Top-performing students of Mechanical Engineering receive scholarships from Chinese sources already during their first period of study at the CDTF partner faculty. This financial support of Chinese exchange students is continued in subsequent study periods at Paderborn University. Coordinated by Vera Denzer (photo center), a selection committee
The summer school for Chinese students of Mechanical Engineering, which has been organized by the CDTF office at Paderborn University for a few years now, has long been part of the program offered to students of the partner faculty.
The majority of the participants of the course "Technical German for international students", predominantly Chinese students, chose the Autostadt near the Volkswagen factory in Wolfsburg for their excursion at the end of this summer semester.
In a few weeks, a new group of German "Mechanical Engineering China - mb-cn" students will start their semester abroad at the CDTF, Paderborn University's partner university. The Master's students enrolled in Mechanical Engineering and Business Administration and Engineering will improve their Chinese language skills in a language course in Qingdao, write their student research paper and carry out tutorials for their Chinese fellow…
