This is a guest post and part of our ongoing Student Life series

In late November 2018, 10 UOW engineering students participated in a two week New Colombo Plan funded study tour to China organised by Senior Research Fellow, Tieling Zhang from the School of Mechanical, Materials, Mechatronic and Biomedical Engineering.

The focus of the tour was Wind Energy Technology.  During the study tour the students visited three universities, Beijing Jiaotong University (Beijing), North China Electrical Power University (Beijing) and Hebei University of Technology (Tianjin), attending lab tours, guest lectures, seminars and cultural courses.  The students also visited factories and a wind farm and traveled on a state of the art, high-speed train.

Take a look at the below video created by  Ruby O’Driscoll, who is studying Bachelor Mechanical Engineering.
