XJTU will join hands with China Aerospace Academy of Systems Science and Engineering along with some related academies of China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation to set up the "Aerospace Elite Class". In addition to their specially designed curriculum courses, students will also be engaged in the learning of other courses in their spare time so that students can learn about aerospace industry with close contact, and about the fascination of aerospace science and technology. The senior experts from the aerospace enterprise and academies will come to teach or give lectures to the students and will guide students during their practicum sessions.
XJTU will enroll 20 students in 2017 for the "Aerospace Elite Class". The students who have demonstrated excellence in their performance will directly enter the graduate programs in aerospace after they graduate from their undergraduate studies.
