Auburn University building campus in China

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — Officials at Auburn University say they're planning to build a campus in China.

University officials say the campus is planned as a partnership with Shanghai University and would be west of Shanghai in Danyang. They say that if plans go through it will serve about 4,000 Chinese and American students.

Larry Benefield, dean of Auburn's College of Engineering, says the campus initially would offer engineering degrees from both universities.

The proposal still must be approved by the Chinese government and the Auburn board of trustees.

Ralph Hing-Chung Zee, associate dean for research in Auburn's engineering school, says Danyang has a high-tech industrial base that's a natural for an engineering school.
