Visit of student group from University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (UESTC)

For the third time, a group of students from University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (UESTC) visited our institute, TUHH and Hamburg for two weeks at the end of May and beginning of June, 2018. They gained rich experiences in the studies and live of German university students as well as German culture.

The first part of the visit was devoted to German industry in Hamburg, such as Jungheinrich, Vattenfall and DESY, where they gained insight into the sophisticated German industrial automation and information technology.

The second part of the visit was on TUHH. It began with an introduction by Dr. Rainer Grünheid on TUHH and the study courses offered by our institute. After the welcome meeting the students took part in the lectures and tutorials of our institute, gained insight into the courses of German style. The students gave very positive feedback on the elaborated PowerPoint presentations, the active atmospheres in the classrooms as well as the convenience of the course structures for self-learning.

On the second to the fourth day, besides lectures and campus tour, two lab courses were offered to the students: “Ultrasonic data transmission” and “digital data transmission”. Furthermore, lab courses from previous years were also introduced to the students, including “autonomous racing car”, “electronic dog” and “grand campus challenge using automatically driving a car”. They were fascinated by the challenges of practice courses for German bachelor students, in particular by the requirements on the coordination and preparation of students as well as the challenges on supervisors.

In addition to participating in courses of our institute, the students visited the lab at the institute of polymer and composites. They also had opportunities to discuss with German students and teachers offline. They learned that the life of the German students is not restricted to lectures, books and library only. The extracurricular activities like concerts and performances help the students to learn in a relaxed environment and with an open mind.

The visit ended with some sightseeing of Hamburg including the Miniature Wonderland, the Hamburg Port and the Elbphilharmonie. We are looking forward to further cooperation between UESTC and TUHH.
