Xiamen Software College Training Center, the largest software training base in Fujian province, has been formally launched.
Xu Chunhang, director of Xiamen Software College, told local media that this new training center has a planned area of 50,000 square meters and the first phase of the project that has put into use is about 12,000 square meters. With the focus on inter-school cooperation and joint development, Xiamen Software College will invite surrounding colleges, institutes, and enterprises to build a software training center that can provide talent support to the entire province.
Xu said they will also set up a special center to promote the production, study, and research of the software industry. With the help of this center, they will construct and operate a basic platform for the software industry in Xiamen; provide public, neutral, open, and professional services to software enterprises; and solve problems that cannot be solved by a single unit or college.
Promoted by the Department of Education of Fujian and the municipal government of Xiamen, Xiamen Software College was founded in March 2006. In 2008, the college opened a 1,000-square-meter training base focusing on production within Xiamen Software Park to give workplace simulation training to students.
