1.Introduction of cooperative foreign school
North Carolina A&T State University (NCA&T) was founded in 1891, since establishment, has always been committed to teaching, scientific research and efficient public services. Now, the University has developed into a comprehensive research university of mechanical, electrical, civil, industrial engineering, energy and environmental studies, and other disciplines. At present, the school has 99 bachelor's degree, 59 master's and 18 doctoral degree authorizations. Bachelor, master and doctoral degree in engineering have passed through the country's leading engineering certification body ABET (Engineering Technology Certification Committee) certification.
According to Faculty Scholarly Productivity published by Academic Analytics, the productivity index of the teachers and academic in NCA&T is ranked 18 among American professional research universities.
The 1,667 teachers in the university are very qualified persons. Most of them received a Ph. D. degree from the most famous universities in the United States and other professional institutions. With more than 10000 students in the school, the school has strong scientific research strength. School is one of the main partners of NASA, with large international companies, the foundation and the federal agency signed an agreement to ensure adequate research funding and student scholarship.
The engineering department to provide high quality education to adapt to the social demand as the goal, to become the world model for high level university, offers courses teaching, curriculum design, consulting, planning and other services for students' occupation. Engineering college professors and students are from different countries and nationalities with a high degree of internationalization. Student-centered teaching and diversified teaching forms exist in engineering college. The engineering college with complete teaching and research facilities and perfect discipline construction, has awarded bachelor, master and doctoral degree authorization, and is committed to the cultivation of professional knowledge and practical skills, and has team spirit and leadership the ability to adapt to the high level of engineering technology talents social needs.

2.Project Overview
School-running level and training objectives
In 2011, Sino foreign cooperative education project “mechanical design manufacturing and automation" formally approved by the State Ministry of Education (Yu No. [2011]695), and the approval number of Ministry of Education is MOE41US2A20111155N. The School running level is for undergraduate colleges, and foreign cooperation institution is North Carolina A&T State University.
Mechanical design manufacturing and automation (Sino foreign cooperative education) is aimed at training students with international vision and innovative competitiveness to adapt to the socialist market economy construction, solid foundation, wide knowledge, manipulative and application ability, and to be engaged in mechanical design and manufacture and design of automatic control in the field of manufacturing, technology development, applied research, technology management and other aspects of the work, and to have deep understanding of China and American theory and philosophy of mechanical engineering design and manufacturing.

Education and teaching plan overview
The project introduces the teaching materials of NCA&T such as curriculum settings and syllabus. Combined with the Henan Polytechnic University curriculum settings and syllabus and then the cooperation project management committee under the guidance of curriculum education group with both the characteristics of the course, jointly develops the curriculum settings and teaching plan for the project requirements. Teaching methods include classroom teaching, group discussion, case analysis, individual counseling, etc.. In the professional training program, all courses are completed in four years:
The first year includes 19 courses, a total of 76 credits, 890 hours. The curriculums are college English, College English listening, Spoken English, Military Training, University Computer Foundation, Higher Mathematics, Descriptive Geometry and Mechanical Drawing, Sports and Health, Advanced Programming Language C++, University Physics Experiment, etc..
The second year includes 22 courses, a total of 66 credits, 1012 hours. The curriculums are TOEFL English reading, Listening, Writing and Speaking, Experimental Physics, Probability Theory and Mathematical Statistics, Linear Algebra, Complex Function and Integral Transform. Among them, global studies, introduction to differential equations, fundamentals of material science, and fundamentals of thermodynamics are introduced curriculums with 12 credits, 192 hours.
The third academic year includes 19 courses, a total of 77 credits, 728 hours. The curriculums are Mechanical Principles, Mechanical Engineering Control Foundation, Engineering Testing Technology, Hydraulic and Pneumatic transmission, Numerical Control Technology, Machine Electronics Control Technique and other experimental courses. Among them, fluid mechanics, engineering economics, mechanical engineering design, manufacturing process, applied thermodynamics are introduced curriculums with 14 credits, 272 hours.
Fourth academic year includes 13 courses, a total of 41 credits, 568 hours. The curriculums are Outline of China's Modern History, Mechanical Manufacturing Technology, System Dynamics, Mechanical Manufacturing Equipment and Design, Computer-aided Design of Machine Elements and other practical courses. Among them, the system dynamics, computer-aided design of machine elements, heat transfer are introduced curriculums with 9 credits, 144 hours.

3.Project advantages
This cooperative education project has strong competitiveness in Henan Province because the project is strong-strong collaboration. Mechanical design and manufacturing automation in Henan Polytechnic University is national characteristic and provincial famous brand construction specialty, and has a PhD degree granting, and the mechanical engineering discipline is primary disciplines of Henan province, and the school of mechanical and power with national engineering training center is known by strong teaching and scientific research strength and excellent running condition. The partner, NCA&T, was founded in 1891, and according to Faculty Scholarly Productivity published by Academic Analytics, the productivity index of the teachers and academic in NCA&T is ranked 18 among American professional research universities. As for NCA&T, the engineering bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees have been certificated by the leading national engineering ABET certification. Mechanical engineering is aimed at cultivating students which are qualified for the practice tasks in mechanical engineering and related fields, and pay attention to the cultivation of students' practical application ability, team spirit, leadership ability, positive communication skills and continuous learning and innovation ability.
On the basis of the Mechanical design manufacturing and automation in Henan Polytechnic University, the core curriculums in mechanical engineering of NCA&T are introduced. Through cooperative education students will fully absorb the advantages of the two sides of the course, not only the basic knowledge of mechanical design and manufacturing automation, the basic skills of mechanical product design, manufacturing and production management are obtained, but also has a strong organization and coordination and innovation ability.

4.Enrollment scale and charge standard
The cooperative education project plans to recruit 120 people each year. September 2012, cooperation program started to enroll new students, 95 students in mechanical engineering. In 2013, the number of students in our school has increased to 105. As of September 2015, the cooperation project has begun to take shape, with 447 students in school.
According to charges standard approved by state and Henan Provincial People's government strictly, our school charges tuition fees. Through strict calculation, to cultivate international talents for the purpose, not for profit purposes, our school charges tuition fees in order to ensure the normal running and operation of project. Undergraduate cooperative education project approval authority and the symbol is (Henan education finance No. [2007]74), and the charging standard is 15,000yuan / person years.
