A Holistic Approach to Civil Engineering Teaching in China


With a long history, it is the first mining university in Chinese history as well as the earliest higher college in Henan province. Its former is Jiaozuo Coal Mining School, which was established by the British Syndicate Co. Ltd., in 1909. During my time at HPU, I have developed a bespoke Research Informed Teaching (RIT) method for English Civil Engineering module delivery. I have designed and written The CIMMS Framework (Computer 3D modeling, Illustration, Model Making and Sketching) ethos, combining four vital elements in a single Engineering English module. Technical Communication and Professional Skills are delivered over a semester, this Development (D) aiming primarily to prepare HPU students for industry. The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is used and widely recognized as a reliable means of assessing the language ability of HPU civil engineering students.
