Tianjin University of Technology and Education (TUTE) was established in 1979, which is called ‘the cradle of cultivating TVET teaching staff in China” with its teaching philosophy of “using mind and hand together” to cultivate the “integrated” polytechnic teachers and advanced technicians, who can get double certificates “degree certificate and technician certificate” . It is the only one local university cooperated by China Central Government and Tianjin Municipality.
From 1993, TUTE began to enroll international students. In 2008, the International College was established, in charge of the enrollment, cultivation, and management of international students. In the same year, International Exchange Centre was established and was put into service, which provides excellent academic environment and living conditions for international students.
