SIUE Chancellor Furst-Bowe Touts Successes, Points to Future

Edwardsville, Ill. (PRWEB) September 26, 2014

Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, Chancellor Julie Furst-Bowe gave her annual State of the University address this morning to the campus community. She reflected upon many accomplishments during the past year, expressed optimism over the state of the institution and also acknowledged the challenges that are ahead.

From the Morris University Center Meridian Ballroom, Furst-Bowe greeted a crowd of nearly 500. See the video.

Furst-Bowe recounted the Universitys most recent recognitions. This month, U.S.News & World Report ranked SIUE among the best Regional Universities Midwest for the 11th consecutive year, remaining in the top 50 in the overall rankings and standing 11th overall among public universities in that category.

The latest U.S. News rankings came just after recognition by Washington Monthly in August that SIUE has climbed into the Top 40 for masters universities in the nation. SIUE is first among all masters institutions in Illinois on the national magazines list.

She acknowledged the record freshman class of 2,126 students. Those first-year students contributed to a record full-time undergraduate student body of 10,979 students or 220 (two percent) more full-time students than one year ago. Overall enrollment grew to 13,972 or one percent (122 students) more than last fall.

Among the other high points, Furst-Bowe reported that SIUE received 185 external awards totaling $ 34.9 million in FY14 and 84 research awards totaling more than $ 5 million.

The chancellor also focused on the Higher Learning Commissions accreditation visit in March. The Quality Check-Up Report indicated thart SIUE provided strong, clear and well-presented evidence for the Criteria for Accreditation and Core Components.

Furst-Bowe pointed proudly toward SIUEs increasingly diverse campus as approximately one-quarter of the student body is now comprised of minority and international students. A significant element is a record international enrollment that has reached 420 students, the first time in 10 years that international enrollment surpassed 400.

Sustainability continues to be a focus as SIUE received a bronze rating from STARS (Sustainability Tracking Assessment and Ratings System) for its accomplishments in campus sustainability.

Among the challenges noted by Furst-Bowe, first is the continuing decline of state support as appropriations have declined nearly $ 10 million in the past five years. She praised faculty and staff for their commitment to effectiveness and efficiency while managing tightened budgets.

Despite the budget challenges, Furst-Bowe pointed to new initiatives funded for FY15 including:

China Electronic Fuel Injection System Industry Report 2014-2017 Now Available at

Dallas, TX (PRWEB) September 01, 2014

The evolution of automotive electronic technologies and the growing strict requirements on vehicles environmental friendiliness has conduced to the electronic control of fuel injection of automobiles in China. It is expected that, in the forthcoming years, Chinese automotive electronic injection industry will keep a steady growth rate of about 8%.

Gasoline electronic injection field:

In 2002, gasoline engines across China stopped the use of carburetor and entered the era of electronic injection. Currently, this industry has developed into a market characteristic of mature product technologies and full competition, where such players enjoy large shares, as United Automotive Electronic Systems Co.,Ltd, Delphi (China), Bosch, Dongguan Keihin Engine Management System Co.,Ltd. and Mitsubishi Electric Auto Parts (China).

Gasoline Direct Injection (GDi) has been the hottest market segment in the gasoline electronic injection field, and such type of engines has been installed in many auto models under Beijing Benz, Shanghai Volkswagen, Shanghai GM and FAW Volkswagen. In 2014, Chinese GDi market demand is estimated to hit roughly 4 million sets, and the figure in 2017 is anticipated to reach 6.57 million sets, with an average growth rate of 18% or so during 2014-2017.

Diesel electronic injection field:

On January 1st, 2015, China will enforce national IV emission standards and high-pressure common-rail will be the mainstream fuel injection technology. As estimated, the Chinese market size of diesel high-pressure common rail system will reach RMB6.8 billion in 2014, up 7% from a year earlier, of which the market scale of heavy high-pressure common rail system will attain to RMB3.7 billion with a growth rate of as high as 27%. It is expected that, till 2017 Chinese diesel high-pressure common rail system market size will be more than RMB10 billion, of which the scale of heavy high-pressure common rail system will be up to over RMB6.5 billion.

Chinese high-pressure common rail market, for the time being, is highly monopolized by a few giants, with the three Bosch, Denso and Delphi together holding a total market share of approximately 90% (of them, Bosch sweeps above 50%). Therefore, as the key cooperative partner of Bosch in China, WeiFu High-tech will embrace bright development prospects in the future. Among local Chinese enterprises,the development of Chengdu WIT Electronic Fuel System Co., Ltd., FAW Group Wuxi Fuel Injection Equipment Research Institute (wfieri), Nanyue Fuel Injection System Co., Ltd., LONGBENG Enterprise Group, etc is ahead in a relative sense, but they still not have realized mass-production. For a certain period of time in the future, this field will still mainly depend on foreign technologies.
