The College of Science and Technology at Ningbo University has been working to set up a new campus in Cixi, a county-level city in Ningbo, East China's Zhejiang province.
The college, which is an ordinary full-time undergraduate independent institute founded by Ningbo University in 1999, will be the first in Cixi. It currently houses eight departments and offers 50 undergraduate degree programs.
The new campus covers an area of over 53.33 hectares and is expected to enroll more than 10,000 students, according to the cooperation agreement jointly signed by Ningbo University and Cixi's municipal government.
After moving to Cixi, the college will gradually adjust its degree programs to fit with local industries and help drive the industrial transformation and economic and social development of the city.
