QUB welcome host engineering summer school for Chinese students

  • Students from China have arrived at Queen’s for a summer school with the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences.

    Around 200 students from seven institutions in China will take part in the summer school hosted by the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences (EPS).

    The students will get a flavour of both the university’s teaching and its research expertise, as well as an insight into some of Northern Ireland’s most progressive engineering and manufacturing companies. Sixteen members of staff from the institutions in China have accompanied the students.

    They will attend three engineering programmes, Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering and a General Engineering and Science programme. They will also experience professional skills module and a range of social activities/visits.

    “It is great to once again be given the chance to welcome these fantastic students from China," said Pro-Vice-Chancellor for the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences at Queen’s, Professor Mark Price.

    "The Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences at Queen’s is delighted to be able to help our friends from China learn something of our education system with a taste of some of the best education programmes in the UK.

    “It is also a fantastic opportunity to help show them Northern Ireland's great engineering and manufacturing companies. The summer school allows us to strengthen the close links we have always had with China and creates firm foundations and friendships for the future."

    Meanwhile, in related Queen's news, former Taoiseach Bertie Ahern and Lord David Trimble, PC, Former First Minister of Northern Ireland, will join conference panellists at the university on Thursday 23 August and Friday 24 August, to discuss experiences of violent conflict and strategies for peace building.
