CUHK Sends Students for Industrial Exploration and Cultural Exchange in Moscow in Collaboration with HIT
Hosted by the Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT) and supported by the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) and various local institutions, the Winter Exploration Camp to Moscow for Hong Kong and Macau Students was held from 11 to 18 November, sending a total 27 students and staff. CUHK sent five students from the Faculty of Engineering to join this activity. In the eight-day event, delegates went to Moscow and visited two member universities under the Association of Sino-Russian Technical Universities (ASRTU) – Moscow State Institute of Steel Alloy and Bauman Moscow State Technical University.
The students were warmly welcomed by the senior members of the two Russian universities. The Russian students interacted with the Hong Kong participants in the quiz competition and cultural performances. Students from Russia, Hong Kong and Macau also discussed topics covering innovation and entrepreneurship, which include the development strategies of petrochemical industries, the strategic settings of the Belt and Road Initiative, and Sino-Russian relations. Delegates also had the chance to learn more about the cultural and historical characteristics of Russia through visiting the renowned Moscow Kremlin and Novodevichy Cemetery.
Apart from the stop at Russia, participating students visited a number of laboratories on HIT Shenzhen campus, as well as companies in Shenzhen Bay Ecology and Technology Park, and Kingdee International Software Group Company Limited, getting to know more about their latest technological developments and achievements. The activity not only provided a valuable chance for the participants to understand the universities in Shenzhen, Harbin and Russia, but also enabled them to develop friendships and have deep interactions among the regions.
OALC, together with the University's various units, aspires to provide a wide range of exchange and experiential learning programmes for CUHK students. Among the numerous activities we offer every year, the summer and winter camps under HIT's Moonlet Programme are quite popular.
