The university has also seriously implemented the Overall Plan for Transformation and Development of Longyan University so as to improve the capability in serving the “3-6-5” industrial demands in Longyan, to guarantee the basic education in Longyan. Thus the overall plan has made some initial achievements in transforming the university to be an application-oriented one, whose characteristics of application-orientation are generally shaped.
Since its application-oriented transformation, the university’s connecting degree with industries has been lifted. Five characteristic specialty groups have been set up, which are based on relating principles and specialties and whose purposes are to correspond to the local characteristic cultural resources and characteristic industries. With the deepening of integrity between the university and industries, the participation in student education by the industries is higher. Thus, the students’ satisfactions with the university are getting higher year by year.
