Gdynia Maritime University and Dalian Maritime University have concluded a cooperation agreement. The agreement was signed by the Rectors of the university, prof. dr hab. Eng. captain Adam Weintrit and prof. Sun Yuqing in Gdynia on April 21, 2023.
Dalian Maritime University is one of the largest maritime universities in the world. More than 25,000 students study here. Dalian is located on the Yellow Sea. The city has about 4 million inhabitants. It operates one of the largest ports in the world.
– The agreement with the Maritime University of Dalian opens up new opportunities for the Maritime University of Gdynia. 40 years ago, we signed an agreement with the Shanghai Maritime University. This cooperation agreement opened the way for our University to broad cooperation with the Far East for many decades – says HM Rector of the Gdynia Maritime University, prof. dr hab. Eng. Capt. Adam Weintrit.
Cooperation with the Dalian Maritime University provides a number of benefits for UMG, including student and employee exchange, joint research projects and scientific activities.
– We proposed the Dalian university to participate in a cruise to the equator and now the Rector of the Maritime University in Dalian, prof. Sun Yuging assured that at least three students from China will sail to the equator on our school frigate – “Dar Młodzieży” – informs the Rector of the GMU. Students from China will study at the Faculty of Navigation, where classes in English will be launched from the new academic year. We have plans for our students to go to Dalian, just like in the case of cooperation with the Shanghai Maritime University – adds prof. dr hab. Eng. Capt. life Adam Weintrit.
The University of Dalian is the 27th foreign university with which the Maritime University of Gdynia will cooperate. Starting cooperation with a Chinese university is a confirmation of the Rector’s strategy for the next two years of term of office related to the internationalization of the University and the expansion of the University’s activities in the international environment.
