The school closely focuses on the strategy of "Talents make the school strong", actively integrates both domestic and international resources, explores international scientific and technological cooperation methods, and transforms from a general personnel exchange and project cooperation to a "project-base-talent" combination model to improve the level of the college's international scientific and technological cooperation.
The school has established cooperative relations with more than 20 universities and research institutions in the United States, Japan, Australia, Britain, Sweden, Canada, Russia, Ukraine and other countries. More than 30 teachers of the college hold important academic positions in academic institutions at home and abroad. At present, there are four national second-level societies affiliated with the school, namely: the Mining Professional Committee of the Chinese Metal Society, the Education Committee of the Chinese Rock Mechanics and Engineering Society, the CAD and CAM Academic Committee of the Metallurgical Automation Society, and the Process Petrology Major of the Chinese Silicate Society Committee; one international society, namely: Asia Pacific International Fluid Enclosure Society.
On June 16, 2017, the 20th International Symposium on Paste Filling and Tailings Density，（the 3rd International Symposium on Paste Filling and Mining in China）was grandly held.
