The Certificate in Industry and Enterprise Tailored Education (IETE) is a pilot programme of XJTLU's SE to develop industry elites - syntegrative elites. The programme provides students with an additional educational path during their summers to earn career-related qualifications, to integrate and apply knowledge into practice, and to skills for continuous learning and self-adaptation. By enrolling in the program, students will receive cross-disciplinary training so as to enhance a comprehensive mindset, strong managerial skills, entrepreneurship, and intercultural leadership awareness. Upon successful completion of the IETE programme, students will be jointly awarded with a certificate by Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University and The University of Liverpool, which will contribute to their career development and graduate school application.
IETE programme consists of two levels:
IETE integrates general, specialist, industrial and management education as response to the social demand for talents with high qualities. Campus-based learning and research are integrated with in-company field studies and practical application to create a special learning context with a high degree of synergy between campus, companies and industrial environment.
XJTLU students are welcome to enroll in the IETE modules in the summer vacation as a program additional to their major studies in their undergraduate programmes. Students may also further develop and expand their IETE studies or practices as their Final Year Projects and receive further mentorship from both academics and industry leaders of IETE.
If the students are employed by the partner companies upon graduation, they may have an opportunity to do a two-year part-time Master level programme at XJTLU upon the agreement of both parties.
The tuition fee for each level of the IETE programme is currently 15,000 RMB. Enrollees need to complete both Level 1 and Level 2 studies to be eligible for the programme certificate.
Students of XJTLU completing all levels of the IETE programme will receive the XJTLU-SE (IETE) – Certificate in Industry and Enterprise Tailored Education jointly awarded by Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University and The University of Liverpool, in addition to their professional graduation and degree certificates. The CIETE is recognized by UK Ministry of Education, and the quality of teaching and assessment of the programme is scrutinized by the UK QAA (Quality Assurance Agency of Higher Education) to ensure that the program follows the internationally recognized standards for higher education.
