Our polytechnic is the only public higher vocational college for architecture industry in Guangdong Province. It is one of the colleges in Guangdong that are qualified to admit foreign students arriving in China. Currently, there are two campuses, one of which in Guangzhou and another in Qingyuan, covering an area of nearly 1,000 acres.

With the support of the National Development and Reform Commission, a national Lingnan Production-education Integration Base for construction technique has been built, in which students can learn various modern and traditional construction technologies in real-life situations. The fields they can dug into including design, construction, water and electricity, decoration, property management and so on, with the training methods fully integrated with modern Technology such as BIM, assembly, intelligence, etc.
