International exchanges have been highly regarded since the founding of the college. It not only takes part in various and constant academic exchanges between domestic architecture study of higher education institutions, but actively carries on international exchanges with foreign universities, academic institutions and well-known scholars. The college also encourages "going out" to have academic exchanges.
