Northern College partners to deliver programming in China

October 27, 2014

Northern College has finalized a new agreement with China’s Chongqing Industry Polytechnic College (CIPC) to deliver Northern programs in China. Under the new partnership 4 programs will be offered in English at CIPC: Instrumentation and Control Engineering Technician, Mechanical Engineering Technician, Motive Power Technician – Automotive Service, and Business Accounting. Curriculum delivered at CIPC will be identical to that at Northern, and students will be registered as Northern students and will receive an Ontario-certified Northern diploma upon program completion. CIPC students will have the option of completing their final year at one of Northern’s campuses, and Chinese faculty will receive training at 2 of Northern’s campuses. Northern has established partnerships with several Chinese institutions, including the Yangzhou College of Environment and Resources. “The international joint venture partnerships that we’ve established are a shining example of our vision of how success for all can be achieved through learning and partnerships,” said Northern President Fred Gibbons. Northern News
