FAST FACTS

The Guangdong Technion-Israel Institute of Technology (GTIIT) is a Sino-foreign cooperative educational institution established by Shantou University (STU) and Technion-Israel Institute of Technology (Technion) with independent legal person status. The university is located in the city of Shantou, Guangdong province.

Ministry of Education approved GTIIT's formal establishment on December 5, 2016. GTIIT will be modeled on the Technion, a leading university in Israel and throughout the world. The vision of GTIIT is to become a world-class international university campus carrying out cutting-edge research in the fields of science and technology. This research will boost entrepreneurship and technology transfer, and foster a high-tech industrial ecosystem in Shantou and Guangdong Province. The establishment of GTIIT is supported by the People's Government of Guangdong Province, the Shantou Municipal Government and the Li Ka Shing Foundation (LKSF).

English will be GTIIT's the language of instruction. GTIIT will be comprised of three units: the College of Engineering; the College of Science; and the College of Life Science. The goal is to have about 5,000 students eventually. The institute will eventually grant Technion engineering degrees at all levels - Bachelor, Masters, and Ph.D., and maintain the high academic standards of education, research and innovation for which the Technion's Haifa campus is world-renowned. Graduates will receive a GTIIT graduation certificate, degree certificate, and Technion degree certificate.

The GTIIT logo represents the cultural origins of each of the partners, as well as their harmonious collaboration. The Hebrew letter "Tet" represents Technion, the red flower stands for Shantou, and the Phoenix of Shantou University.

Vision

GTIIT will be a state-of-the-art university dedicated to innovative research, environmental conservation, and social prosperity.

The university will advance Guangdong province, the People's Republic of China, the State of Israel and all humanity.
