At the start of 2019, an animated simulation video that pictures the architectural idea of the blueprint of SCUT's Guangzhou International Campus (GZIC) has been published online.
The project of constructing the GZIC was established in March 2017 jointly by the Chinese Ministry of Education, the provincial government of Guangdong, the municipal government of Guangzhou, and SCUT. It is SCUT's third campus, about four kilometers to the south of its University Town Campus.
This new campus is a hub for addressing major demands of the country and of the region, conducting frontier scientific research, promoting high-end technology transfer, and training top talents for innovative abilities, all of which aim to help Guangdong achieve the goals set for taking the lead on China's future development.
The construction of the campus is expected to have Phase One completed and delivered for use in 2019, after it celebrated the groundbreaking ceremony in May 2018 and received the first enrollment of students in September 2018.
