From August 9, 2021, MSE and the Cambridge Centre for the Integration of Science, Technology and Culture (shorted as CCISTC) of University of Cambridge has jointly held a two-week summer program on intelligent manufacturing for students of relevant majors of HUST. The program aims to enhance students’ international vision, strengthen their competitiveness, and promote the implementation of the International Exchange Multiplication Plan, thus cultivating top talents for comprehensive innovation. The program invited Fumiya Lida, an expert in the field of intelligent manufacturing and associate professor of Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge, to give lectures in the program. Based on the students’ comprehensive level such as ordinary performance and English achievements, MSE selected 18 students to participate in the program, including 13 from MSE BS’ 19 students, and 5 from School of Materials Science and Engineering of HUST. Ms. Zhang Li, Assistant to the Dean and associate professor of MSE, organized the whole program such as course contents and student management.
