On 5 May, an agreement on establishing a joint educational venture – the Sino-Polish School of Engineering at Tianjin Chengjian University – of Bialystok University of Technology (Poland), Cracow University of Technology (Poland), and Tianjin Chengjian University (China) was signed in the Ministry of Science and Higher Education in Warsaw.

Under this agreement, BUT teachers are going to China to teach students studying Civil Engineering and Environmental Engineering, while teachers from Cracow University of Technology – students studying Architecture and Landscape Architecture (at undergraduate and graduate levels).
