In 2019, Dongguan City officially began its preparation for the establishment of the Bay Area University, as it strived for high quality in terms of planning, positioning and construction. On the one hand, it took the opportunity in the construction of the Pilot Zone of the Comprehensive National Science Center in the Greater Bay Area to help obtain innovative resources and comprehensively enhance the development of industries, universities and research institutes in the Greater Bay Area. On the other hand, it provides full play to the strong industrial foundation and the advantages of industry-university-research integration in the Greater Bay Area and Dongguan City to comprehensively contribute to the development of Thriving Dongguan, a pearl in the Greater Bay Area and render a vital guarantee for the journey to fully establish a modern socialist China.
1.2 Project targets
The Bay Area University is a regular higher-learning institution that is managed by the People’s Government of Guangdong Province, while mainly invested and guaranteed by the People’s Government of Dongguan City.
Rooting upon science and engineering programs, the University highlights the innovation of talent cultivation, is committed toward cultivating high-end talents who can adapt to future rapid changes, supports and leads the development of science and innovation in the Greater Bay Area, produces first-class results, helps enhance competitiveness of science and innovation in the Greater Bay Area, and contributes to the development of an international-level and first-class Greater Bay Area. It seeks to develop into a new research university that has unique attributes and leads the future development of science and technology, industrial upgrade and social progress.
The primary programs cover fields like material science, science and advanced engineering; life science, and new-generation information technology. Financial management will be available in due course.
1.3 Overall picture
(1) One university with two campuses
The Bay Area University will have two campuses, and construction will be accordingly carried out in this arrangement.
Considering the entire spatial structure of “the central business district, Songshan Lake Science and Technology Industrial Park, and Binhaiwan Bay Area” of Dongguan City, the University plans to simultaneously build two campuses in Songshan Lake Science City and in Binhaiwan Bay Area. The total area is around 1.567 million square meters.
Located in Songshan Lake Science City, the Songshan Lake Campus covers around 166,667 square meters. Currently, Songshan Lake Science City has joined hands with Guangming Science City in Shenzhen and the Lok Ma Chau Loop area between Hong Kong and Shenzhen to establish the Pilot Zone of the Comprehensive National Science Center in the Greater Bay Area.
Located on Weiyuan Island in Binhaiwan Bay Area, the Binhaiwan Bay Campus covers around 1.4 million square meters. Situated at the intersection of the east and west banks of the Pearl River Estuary in Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, the Binhaiwan Bay Area is connected to the Nansha Free Trade Zone in Guangzhou, the Airport Economic Zone of Shenzhen and the Qianhai Free Trade Zone. Adjacent to both Hong Kong and Macao, it is a significant area that highlights the collaboration between the two regions, thus increasing interconnections between the two.
It is intended that by 2030, the Bay Area University will have enrolled around 10,000 students, including a reserved enrollment quota of 5,000 students for the long term. The ratio between undergraduates and postgraduates will be around 1:1. The Songshan Lake Campus is expected to accommodate 2,000 postgraduates, while Binhaiwan Bay Campus is expected to accommodate 8,000 undergraduates and postgraduates (including a reserved enrollment quota of 5,000 students for the long term).
(2) Three functions
Educational and teaching function: Planned and constructed considering scientific layout, beautiful environment, and green-and-smart principles, the project is committed toward creating a modern-style campus that integrates science, art, culture and practicality to generate a good educational teaching and nurturing environment.
Science-education-industry integration function: The project targets to form a high-tech science and technology innovation complex that incorporates various resource elements regarding innovation and entrepreneurship practices, technology business incubation, investment and financing facilities, and conversion of scientific and technological achievements.
International cooperation function: The project aspires to establish an experimental platform and innovation platform for higher education reform, to integrate universities at home and abroad to implement experimental project cooperation, and to provide an international university cooperation platform for combining the functions of cooperative education, academic visits and exchanges, academic seminars, and collaboration between enterprises, universities, research institutes and users.
