Employment opportunities for teaching Engineering in China

Education is a sector that China has opened up to the world today. Chinese Universities are world classes and the engineering universities are equal to that of USA and Europe. The higher education sector especially in Engineering disciplines education has growth substantially in China. The numbers of international students who want to study engineering in China continue to increase significantly. To respond this, most of universities with engineering disciplines started to offer courses in English medium language, it’s with this perspective that many universities need to hire foreign teachers who are qualifies in any engineering disciplines for teaching or doing research. The most popular engineering disciples in Chinese Universities include but not limited to Electrical engineering, Mechanical engineering, Computer engineering, civil and architecture engineering, Aerospace Engineering Sciences, Chemical and Biological Engineering, Biomedical Engineering etc...

Engineering Education 
Engineering education is the activity of teaching knowledge and principles related to the professional practice of engineering. Chinese engineering and technology have developed rapidly since the founding of the People's Republic of China in 1949. China has trained a large number of skilled engineers and technicians across a range of disciplines. These professionals have played a major role in the development of the national economy, in the continuous improvement of quality of life, and in the advancement of science and technology around the world. In China, it includes the initial education led to 4-5 years bachelors’ degree, postgraduate education led to master’s degree which normally takes 2-3 years, and advanced education led to doctoral degree which normal takes 3-4 years. In China, there are several engineering colleges imparting under-graduate and graduate courses in engineering, applied engineering and sciences. China's engineering education has reached world standards, and lots of universities have started programs taught in English. These Universities are located all over the country; it is wise for any foreign teachers who want to teach engineering to decide which city suit you best. 
China education is the largest education system in the world and Investment in education accounts for about 4% of total GDP in China. In nowadays, international students have enrolled in over 775 higher education institutions in China. China has a long history of providing education to international students studying in higher learning institutions and specialized universities in China. Over the past few years, the number of international students who study in China has significantly increased every year.
China is today the largest producer of engineering graduates in the world, with some 600,000 passing out of its colleges and universities last year. Compared to India and China, the United States produces only 70,000 engineering graduates every year. All of Europe produces just 100,000. More Chinese universities nowadays offer all types of engineering courses available to international students in English medium. The starting date of engineering courses in most Universities is in September and some in March or April every year.
Foreign Teachers in China
The number of foreign Teachers in Chinese Universities was recently increased, the new policy for most of Chinese universities are to increase  as much as possible the number of engineering courses offered in English medium language. The universities provide friendly working environment to foreigners, apart from good hospitality which is one of the characteristics of Chinese people, the university may provide free accommodation, facilitation to get Chinese Visa as well as residence permit. China is improving the quality of education through a major effort in curriculum revision in all engineering disciplines, there is no doubt that China engineering programs meet international standards. These programs look similar as other engineering education programs in USA and European Universities. Particularly, Chinese Universities have Integrated Teaching and Learning Laboratories, most of Chinese universities have currently established a new paradigm for engineering education in which the student is an active learner, engaging in hands-on design activities in interdisciplinary teams.
China has a consistent University teaching development system. University Teaching has historically been and remains today a highly respected profession in China. University Teachers need strong preparation in their subject matter and prospective spend a great deal of time with their students in classrooms or in respective Laboratory for research. Higher education in China has played an important role in the economic construction, science and Engineering progress and social development by bringing up large scale of advanced foreign experts for teaching engineering in China. In 2010, there were all together 2305 Higher Education Institutions (HEIs), among which 1090 were universities and significant number of these universities offered Engineering courses for both Chinese and Foreign Students. 
In addition, excellent and talented foreign teachers in the field of engineering from any Chinese University may also have chances to take part in the bilateral overseas engineering projects carried by Chinese government like infrastructure construction and resource development in countries like Ghana, South Africa and Pakistan etc... There is great chance for a foreign teacher who demonstrated exceptional skills to be in charge of these engineering projects in any developing country. 
If you are looking for an exciting career opportunity and a beautiful environment in which to live? Joining Chinese Universities as Teaching or researcher staff member could be your first choice. If you’re qualified as university Lecturer, researcher in the following but not limited fields: 
Civil Engineering
