Dalian University of Technology (DUT) is a national key university administrated directly under the Ministry of Education of China, which is also sponsored by Project 985, Project 211 and world-class university. DUT "Xinghai International Forum for Young Scholars" is an important opportunity and carrier,which makes outstanding young scholars at home and abroad to get close to the campus of DUT, affords multiple state key laboratories and research bases for the discussion of cutting edge global academic focuses and lets young scholars feel the talent, science and technology led by the vitality of romantic coastal city of Dalian. The forum has become a significant platform for outstanding youths to discover, understand and join DUT after two consecutive sessions.

The Mathematical and Physical Sciences Centre of DUT was founded on 24 Jan 2013, consisting of Institute of Computational and Applied Mathematics, Institute of Computational and Applied Physics, Institute of Information and Electrical Science, etc. Its purpose is to arrange for the teaching of fundamental courses of maths, physics, computer science, electrical and electronic engineering of campus and fundamental courses in English and professional courses of DLI. The centre relies on the maths and physics majors to enroll and cultivate academic postgraduates and Ph.D. students of subjects allied to Maths and Physics and professional postgraduates of Applied Statistics.

The Leicester International Institute, Dalian University of Technology (DLI) is a Sino-foreign cooperative educational institution, jointly established in March 2017 by Dalian University of Technology (DUT) and the University of Leicester (UoL). The institute aims to promote exchanges between China and the UK in the fields of culture, science, engineering and technology, promote academic cooperation between DUT and UoL, and to cultivate high-level professionals with an international vision. Students are registered in two universities, mainly complete all their studies in DUT under the "4+0" training model. Upon graduation, they will obtain the bachelor’s degree certificate and graduation certificate granted by DUT and the bachelor’s degree certificate granted by UoL. The institute currently offers three undergraduate degree programmes in the subject areas of Mathematics, Chemistry and Mechanical Engineering, and plans to enroll 300 undergraduates in 2020.
