U.S.-based ITT Corporation announced plans to sponsor an engineering talent development program in China.
Working in cooperation with local partners, including Science and Technology Daily and TusPark Company Ltd., the program will focus on accelerating the development of the engineering and manufacturing industry by cultivating China's engineering technology talent, improving research and development capabilities, and enhancing the quality of micro and small enterprises
At this stage the company's plans are merely a public relations move, as financial terms of the program and roll-out timelines were not revealed yet.
The program will reportedly include both an education program and innovation competition. Both initiatives will be focused on cooperatively sharing knowledge and best practices that give students additional opportunities to receive integrated training and guidance about innovation and R&D.
Through the development of this platform, the partners expect to help improve the international competitiveness of China's manufacturing and engineering industry.
