Guangzhou City Polytechnic is in the center of Guangzhou Municipality at the foot of Baiyun Mountain, and is in its second year of operation.
In response to calls by the Chinese Ministry of Education, Guangzhou City Polytechnic was established to deal with the vocational needs of an ever-changing workforce and new economic development in the People’s Republic of China. Programs of study include auto technology, machinery and electricity skills training, art design and agriculture. The goals of the institution are vocational education, life-long learning and worker re-training.
In November 2006, Southwestern College and Guangzhou City Polytechnic signed a Memorandum of Understanding, which included teacher exchanges and seminar training.
