  On the morning of 13th Dec, Li and his team visited University of South Florida located in Tampa, and talked with Adriana Marales, associate vice president for international affairs, Jose Zayas-Castro, executive Vice-President of International Affairs, and other directors. The host introduced development strategy of teaching, scientific research and internationalization of their own universities, and interchanged ideas on student exchange, teacher communication and cooperation in related disciplines. University of South Florida, built in 1956, is the largest flagship institution in the Florida State University system, and developed rapidly in engineering, medicine, chemical engineering, etc. It actively implements internationalization strategy, and creates opportunities for students to pursue their study overseas. Both BIT and University of South Florida thought there are many similarity between the two universities, thereby planning to further promote teaching cooperation and subject docking with the beginning of promoting student exchange and teacher communication. The team then visited the sensor Lab of University of Florida and the high-tech innovation center of South University of Florida. The researchers introduced the development and application of new sensors in detail, and the whole process of scientific research and innovation with enterprises.

  On the morning of December 14th, Li and his fellow team members visited the University of Florida in Galnasville. Founded in 1853, the university of Florida is the second largest public research university in Florida, ranking ninth among national public research universities. Our teachers have academic exchanges with the University of Florida in areas such as mechanical engineering, software and information technology, but BIT has not yet established a cooperative relationship between schools or colleges with the University of Florida. The visit resulted in the signing of a cooperation agreement at the school level between the two schools.The delegation visited the University of Florida College of engineering, and the Department of electrical and computer engineering director John Harris, Department of chemical engineering director Carlos Rinaldi talks, and visited the Department of electronic engineering and chemical engineering laboratory. Based on academic exchanges, the two sides plan to promote the joint training of undergraduate and graduate design. At the University of Florida International Center, Vice Chancellor Li and Leonardo Villalon, director of the Center for International Affairs, exchanged views on how to advance closer cooperation between the two schools.
