As the sole branch campus of Tsinghua University, the Shenzhen International Graduate School (SIGS) serves as Tsinghua's scientific research and graduate education platform in southern China. It is committed to continuing Tsinghua's academic legacy and promoting scientific innovation.
Launched on 29 March 2019, Tsinghua SIGS is a collaboration between Tsinghua University and the Shenzhen Municipal Government that builds on the strengths and experiences of the Graduate School at Shenzhen (GSST) and the Tsinghua-Berkeley Shenzhen Institute (TBSI). It aims to bring together world-class faculty and students, tackle global challenges through cutting edge research and international collaboration, and nurture the next generation of global leaders by creating an International, Borderless, and Entrepreneurial learning environment.
By diversifying faculty and student bodies, engaging in high-level collaboration with overseas partners, and internationalizing campus resources, Tsinghua SIGS will cultivate students' global competencies and nurture them as future global leaders.
By transcending boundaries between academic disciplines, industry and the surrounding community, Tsinghua SIGS will openly share resources and expertise to develop interdisciplinary solutions for global challenges beyond its physical location.
By refocusing its educational philosophy, exploring innovative forms of pedagogy and restructuring its administrative systems, Tsinghua SIGS will reshape graduate education and provide innovative degrees to meet rapidly changing industry needs.
