Courtesy Visit by delegation of the Graduate School at Shenzhen, Tsinghua University, China (Nov. 4, 2014)

Posted:2014/11/13

A delegation from the Graduate School at Shenzhen, Tsinghua University visited the Graduate School of Engineering.  The delegation was headed by Assoc. Prof. Li Huan accompanied by one researcher and five graduate students.

Kyoto University and Tsinghua University commenced a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in May, 1998.  Under the umbrella of the comprehensive MOU, the Graduate School of Engineering and the Graduate School at Shenzhen have actively enhanced academic exchanges.

Above all, there are two remarkable points about this agreement.  One of them is the JSPS core university project named ‘Urban Environmental Engineering’. This project was launched in 2001 in partnership with Tsingshua University and is  conducted for a decade. The other is one of our overseas bases, Cooperative Research and Education Center for Environmental Technology on a campus of the Graduate School at Shenzhen, Tsinghua University, established on October 1, 2005. They put this base to practical use as a research hub.

The delegation from Shenzhen visited the Graduate School of Engineering from Nov. 3 through 16 to facilitate the program of the sixth internship of Tsinghua University students in Kyoto.

They took this opportunity to make a courtesy visit to Dean of the Graduate School of Engineering on Nov. 4.  Dr. Li extended his thanks to Dean Shinzaburo Ito for the collaborative project and fostering of young researchers in the field of environmental engineering which has been conducted for over many years. Prof. Hiroaki Takana, Leader of overseas base and Prof. of the Research Center for Environmental Quality Management, and other concerned researchers, joined the meeting. They exchanged views about promotion of academic exchange. The center will greet a turning point next October as they will celebrate the tenth year anniversary of its establishment. They reached an agreement to launch the abundant results of research as they have engaged in a wide range of research fields related to various environmental concerns such as water pollution and waste management problems.

There are around 10 Kyoto graduate and undergraduate students scheduled to be dispatched to China next March. In relation to this, student discussion and analytical training in the relevant laboratories, and a seminar organized by students in Shenzhen are planned.
