Study civil engineering in China in light to climate
China's climate type:
1. Tropical monsoon climate, including Southern Taiwan Province, Leizhou Peninsula and Hainan Province, where the average temperature of the coldest month is no less than 16 ℃.

2. Subtropical monsoon climate, including most areas of North and South China, the temperature of coldest month is among - 8-0 ℃. It is the transition areas between the subtropical and temperate zone, where the temperature in summer is quite high and winter is low with distinctive four seasons.

4.Temperate continental climate. In general, the hottest month is peaked 26 ℃, while the coldest approaches to - 26 ℃

Study civil engineering in China concentrating expenses
China is an affordable destination for international students from all over the world, thanks to the relatively much lower tuition and living cost, where transportation and food are less expensive than in the U.S. or Western Europe.

Study civil engineering in China by choosing teaching staff
Some China’s top engineering universities coordinate with outboard elite institutes to found joint universities, students will get an international diploma after 4 year study(usually 2 years in China and another 2 abroad). Among those, Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University, a joint institute founded by China’s engineering top university Xi’an Jiaotong University and United Kingdom’s outstanding Liverpool University.
