Intelligent Robotics Engineering with Contemporary Entrepreneurialism


In recent years, intelligent robotics and artificial intelligence technologies have made tremendous advances. This progress has greatly benefitted society, reducing intensive and repetitive work and enhancing labour productivity and safety.

The School of Robotics at XJTLU Entrepreneur College (Taicang) has developed the BEng Intelligent Robotics Engineering with Contemporary Entrepreneurialism to satisfy China’s development needs related to intelligent robotics engineering. The programme will also play a part in digitalisation, networkisation (transforming entities into network forms), informatisation (integrating and using information and communication technologies), and intelligentisation (using AI that can make decisions) in contemporary society globally. The programme advances the curriculae and education models of relevant disciplines such as computer science, electrical and electronics, communications, and mechatronics. The programme promotes development of applications, intelligence and automation to help achieve the transformation from “Made in China” to “Innovative Manufacturing in China”.

To narrow the gap between university education and real industrial needs, we are transforming traditional education through XJTLU’s innovative Syntegrative Education Model, bridging knowledge in the field of intelligent robotics with entrepreneurship, innovation, and collaboration with industry partners. To introduce to undergraduate education the latest industrial practices and address real industrial challenges, the School of Robotics is collaborating with leading companies including Siasun, ECOVACS, DeepBlue, BOHHOM, Inovance, FAIR Robotics, Kärcher, and 3S Robotics. This approach not only provides students with in-depth insights into the latest industry developments, and approaches, but also enhances students’ goal-oriented thinking and problem-solving abilities. To help students develop into elite talents who can lead the development of emerging industries, we also offer modules and training in leadership and communication, innovative thinking, entrepreneurial practice, and teamwork.
