On December 28, 2023, the University of Electronic Science and Technology in Chengdu, Sichuan, hosted the Employment and Education Project Exchange and Promotion Meeting under the auspices of the Ministry of Education. At this event, the Ministry’s Employment Guidance Committee showcased 35 exemplary projects from the first and second phases of the Supply-Demand Matching Employment Education initiative. Among these, the collaborative project between SCMU’s School of Computer Science and Kingsoft Office Software Limited (Wuhan) was highlighted as an exceptional case. Notably, it was the only project selected from among national Minzu universities.

This partnership, which began in December 2019, is based on the principles of mutual benefits, complementary strengths, and joint development through school-enterprise cooperation. It focuses on training both undergraduate and postgraduate students. The collaboration is anchored in the Outcome-Based Education (OBE) philosophy, which is integral to engineering education accreditation. It involves tailoring teaching objectives to meet corporate needs, thereby ensuring that these objectives guide instructional activities and the ongoing assessment and enhancement of student learning outcomes. In response to corporate demands, the project has fine-tuned the educational goals of essential courses and practical training. By adopting role-based mechanisms and a project-driven approach, the initiative integrates students’ innovative team projects with the CDIO (Conceive, Design, Implement, Operate) engineering education framework. This ensures that students develop robust skills in project development, design, construction, innovation, teamwork, and communication. The collaboration between academic faculty and industry engineers facilitates a shift from traditional knowledge-based teaching to a more research-oriented educational model. This shift encourages active pedagogical research, the exploration of innovative teaching strategies, and the development of students’ capabilities in system application, programming, research, development, and teamwork. The project has resulted in the formation of a pioneering team of students from Minzu universities, blending education, research, and industry engagement. To date, it has prepared over 300 students for high-quality employment opportunities.

Following its recognition by the Ministry of Education, the School of Computer Science at SCMU plans to leverage this achievement to explore further and develop new joint training models for computer science students. This initiative aligns with the evolving context of new engineering disciplines, aiming to continuously cultivate outstanding talent in the information technology sector.
