On April 19, the "DME of Tsinghua—MSE of HUST Joint Doctoral Students Academic Exchange Forum" and its closing ceremony were successfully completed online. At this joint forum, 8 excellent students from Tsinghua University and Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST) gave oral presentations, and Prof. Zhang Chenhui from the Department of Mechanical Engineering (DME) of Tsinghua University was invited to share his scientific research experience and achievements. Prof. Shi Tielin, Secretary of the Party Committee of MSE of HUST, LV Zhigang, Secretary of the Party Committee of DME of Tsinghua University, Wang Jiadao, Director of DME of Tsinghua University, and hundreds of students from the two universities attended the forum through Tencent Conference APP.
On the morning of April 19, 8 outstanding students conducted academic exchanges by oral reports, covering different directions such as manufacturing, robot control, sensor technology and principle, optimization algorithm and trajectory prediction. Prof. Zhang Yunqing and Prof. Lu Wenlong from MSE of HUST, Qu Timing, Vice Secretary of the Party Committee of DME of Tsinghua University, and Zhao Huichan, a research fellow of DME, served as judges of the forum. The judges and students actively asked questions to the reporters, and wisdom was sparked during the communication and interaction.
On the afternoon of April 19, Prof. Zhang Chenhui gave an invited report entitled "Liquid Superlubricity Research", introducing his team's research in the field of liquid superlubricity with "the story triggered by a cup of yogurt". Zhang also introduced the process of overcoming various difficulties during the research, and finally they made a breakthrough and achievements. Later, he communicated with the attended students through voice and chat room, which not only broadened their research vision but also helped them understand the research spirit.
