Description of 2016 Summer School at CUMT


  1. Background and Objective

Further to successful running of the summer camp and summer school programs at the China University of Mining and Technology (CUMT) in the years of 2014 and 2015, CUMT will continue to undertake the Summer School Program in 2016, with a view to enabling students from the International Higher Education Alliance for Mining, Energy and Environment member universities as well as other partner universities to learn about CUMT, China’s mining industry and Chinese culture as well. The Program also aims to provide an opportunity for participants to know each other and develop friendship.


Over the past two years, a total of 49 international students from 13 higher education institutions in 10 countries across the world have participated in the programs. The international students come from the Montanuniversitaet Leoben in Austria, the University of Queensland, the University of Western Australia and the University of Wollongong in Australia, VSB-Technical University of Ostrava in the Czech Republic, German-Mongolian Institute for Resources and Technology in Mongolia, the TU Bergakademie Freiberg in Germany, AGH University of Science and Technology in Poland, the National Mineral Resources University in Saint-Petersburg, Russia, the University of Nottingham in the UK, Colorado School of Mines and University of Kentucky in the US and Hanoi University of Mining and Geology in Vietnam.
