The students were greeted by Prof. Zhang Qingjie, WUT President, Prof. Liu Hanxing, School Dean of International Demonstration and other university leaders during their visit to the US, who highly praised the students’ amazing performance. 

  At MS&T, the students attended the academic sessions keynoted by Prof. Christopher A. Schuh, School Director of Material Science, MIT, Prof. Takashi Goto, Tohoku University, Prof. Christian, Kisiel Owski, Berkeley, University of California, Prof Nick Birbilis, Monash University and raised questions along the course. They all expressed that they found the exchange rewarding. 

  During the visit, our students joined the student presidents’ workshop under the initiative of Elites in Material Science and discussed heatedly with other attendants. They introduced the achievements of MA in WUT and exchanged ideas with peers. After that, they communicated with six MA students from Worcester Polytechnic Institute, expressing on behalf of WUT the willingness for further intercollegiate co-operation.
