Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications is a prestigious institution, specialising in telecommunications including electronic engineering and computer science. It is designated a key university - one of the top hundred of the 2,000 universities in China - by the Chinese Ministry of Education. The School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science at Queen Mary has had a productive cooperation relationship with BUPT since 1999 based on shared research interests. In 2003, the relationship moved to a different level with a momentous proposal made by the President of BUPT, Professor Jintong LIN. He suggested that the two universities should develop a joint programme of study, operated at BUPT but using academics from both institutions, using a curriculum devised by both which lead to degrees from both.
The visionary aim of the Joint Programme is to train graduates who can operate successfully in the global community. BUPT on its own could provide high quality engineering teaching elements. What Queen Mary can add is the Western perspective, the skills and the awareness that enable engineers to function in the commercial world: the legal framework, the understanding of management systems and styles and the focus on personal development. Professor Lin saw that the growth in the Chinese economy and the rise in manufacturing capability made it essential for Chinese engineers to understand the international context of their work, whether they aim to work at home or abroad.

The JP Industrial Advisory Board provides a forum in which JP’s educational and research programmes and policies are presented and discussed with representatives from prospective employers and other interests external to the College. The aim is to guide the development of JP so that it is relevant to employers, industry and commerce. It is also intended to improve cooperation with employers and enterprises that might take advantage of our research outputs

The JP Staff Student Liaison Committees (SSLCs) are rather a hybrid of the procedures at the two universities. There is one committee for each cohort because of the large number of students. Each committee is composed of teaching staff, two representatives from each class and the year tutor. SSLC meetings are held twice per semester. The meetings for each cohort (that is, each of years 1, 2, 3 and 4) are held separately and each is chaired by one of the student representatives.
The meetings are attended by representatives of senior JP and International School staff, with live 3-way video links between the representatives’ meeting at the Hongfu campus, the staff in the main BUPT campus and the staff at QM in London.
The student representatives are nominated by the students and each representative can stand for up to two consecutive years. The coordination of representatives’ training, pre-meeting preparation, meetings and reports are the responsibility of two members of staff, one from QM and one from BUPT. After approval, the meeting reports are lodged with both QM and BUPT
