On January 2, 2014, Prof.Alan Julian, President of École Supérieure Libre d' art de Paris visited Xi'an Polytechnic University and Prof. Gao Yong, President of XPU met with the visiting guests and signed cooperation agreement in the Third Meeting Room in Xi'an campus. Heads of related departments as International office, administration office, graduate school, college of apparel and design, college of management, college of art and engineering were present in the meeting and attended the agreement signing ceremony.
During the talks, Gao Yong introduced the basic situation of our University to the visiting guests. The enrollment scale of art students in XPU, he said, is huge to gather as many as more than 5000 students at present. A comprehensive sitting of subjects helped build a complete industry chain involving apparel design, production and management, which won XPU great fame both at home and abroad. He said that École Supérieure Libre d' art de Paris is XPU's first cooperation partner in French and hoped that the two parts will work together later in programs of scientific research, teacher exchange and reach fruitful results.
Professor Alan Julian introduced the situation of the École Supérieure Libre d' art de Paris and expressed his expectation for all the aspects of cooperation between the two parties. He stressed that the two sides should jointly cultivate compound talents: management talents with artistic taste and design talents with advanced management concepts.
