A Chinese state-owned company responsible for the engines of its first locally made passenger jet kicks off its 2012 overseas recruitment in Ohio University of Cincinnati.

This is the first stop since AVIC Commercial Aircraft Engine Co., Ltd. (ACAE), one of the subsidiaries of Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC), announced its new round of global talent recruitment on Feb 29, 2012. It marked the first time that China's aviation industry has extended an olive branch to the U.S., whose aviation industry has the most advanced technology, and the highest output in the world.

The recruitment program targets mature talents and focus on outstanding graduates from colleges and universities. ACAE plans to hold job fair in University of Cincinnati, University of Michigan, Purdue University and Florida Institute of Technology, recruit talents in the fields of composite materials, fluid mechanics, mechanical and electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, dynamics, aerospace manufacturing, aviation aerospace manufacturing, electronic engineering, materials science and engineering, multidisciplinary design optimization, aerodynamics, noise control system, applied mathematics, computer science, electronic and computer engineering and others.

It is expected that nearly 1,000 people will go to the job fairs, and eventually 100 will get the offer from ACAE.

The overseas recruitment philosophy is that a high capability of engineering is placed as priority, regardless of the nationality, regardless of color, regardless of age, said Zhang Yu Jin, the deputy general manager of ACAE.

It means, in short, an admission that since 1978, China has lost the capacity for scientific advances that, during the first 30 years, often awed the rest of the world.
