Heilongjiang Institute of Technology

黑龙江工程学院

Heilongjiang Institute of Technology (HLJIT) is designated medium risk for its growing involvement in defence research.

HLJIT is an engineering-focused university that engages in growing levels of defence research. In 2015, the Heilongjiang Provincial Government partnered with defence industry agency SASTIND to expand the university’s ability to ‘show its national defence characteristics and serve the national defence science and technology industry.’https://web.archive.org/web/20190806044512/http://www.hljit.edu.cn/Htmlfiles/xxsy/xxyw/2015/04/21/18667.html

SASTIND has designated military-use power and energy, optoelectronics and laser technology, and computing as three ‘disciplines with national defence characteristics’ at HLJIT.https://web.archive.org/web/20190806045041/http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:NCU6RjH47X4J:www.hljskgw.org.cn/news_n.asp%3Fid%3D1707+&cd=5&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=au ; https://web.archive.org/web/20190806045929/http://221.208.241.233/Htmlfiles/qcyjtgcxy/xkzy/2012/09/21/5795.html ; https://web.archive.org/web/20190806045917/http://www1.byau.edu.cn/zhengce/index.php/2017-10-27-07-32-29/2017-10-27-08-46-47/463-2018-06-15-08-49-27.html ; https://web.archive.org/web/20190403075200/http://www.hljit.edu.cn/Item/708.aspx In June 2016, HLJIT and ZTE jointly launched an MOE-ZTE ICT Product-Teaching Integration Innovation Base (教育部-中兴通讯ICT产教融合创新基地) and established the Heilongjiang School of Engineering-ZTE Information and Communications Technology College (黑龙江工程学院-中兴信息通信技术学院).http://archive.ph/2019.11.15-022843/http://www.hljit.edu.cn/Item/24328.aspx ZTE has been reportedly barred from US government contracts.https://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2019/08/08/business/u-s-formalizes-ban-government-contracts-chinas-huawei-zte-entities/#.XdIkoFczaUl

As it increases its implementation of military-civil fusion, HLJIT has developed relationships with defence conglomerates. The university is particularly close to China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation (CASC), a leading state-owned manufacturer of long-range missiles and satellites.https://web.archive.org/web/20190806045041/http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:NCU6RjH47X4J:www.hljskgw.org.cn/news_n.asp%3Fid%3D1707+&cd=5&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=au In 2017, HLJIT partnered with a subsidiary of CASC to establish a joint research centre, the Aerospace Smart City Research Institute.https://web.archive.org/web/20190806045041/http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:NCU6RjH47X4J:www.hljskgw.org.cn/news_n.asp%3Fid%3D1707+&cd=5&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=au The subsidiary, Aerospace Shenzhou Smart System Technology Co., Ltd. (航天神舟智慧系统技术有限公司), specialises in smart city and informatization technology.https://web.archive.org/web/20190807005910/http://www.spacesystech.com/Archives/IndexArctype/index/t_id/8.html
