And he wished that this new platform, taking the launch ceremony as it’s starting point, would strive and innovate for rendering itself into a powerhouse of public opinion, cultural construction, network education, the practical training of converged media, and the guidance of socialist core values. Furthermore, the center could gather WUT’s strength inwardly and displayed WUT’s profile outwardly to underpin the university’s high-quality development with excellent media work.

After the unveiling ceremony, Xin Sijin with other heads of WUT inspected the construction and operation of the convergent media center and was briefed on relevant work.
It’s reported that the university has taken more efforts on integrated planning and adjusted the internal structure. After a year of construction, Convergent Media Center of WUT formally opened. And WUT’s converged media pattern took shape, featuring five main communication channels, namely, newspaper, website, application, new-media platform, and screen. Consequently, WUT took a firmer step in terms of adapting new propagation trends, enhancing the construction of the university’s publicity team, fortifying the position of mainstream consensus, laying a solid foundation for the publicity work, and improving the quality of the university’s propaganda work.
