Twenty-six researchers attended the workshop on Saturday Nov. 9, 2019 including the Group Leader of Welding Automation at Edison Welding Institute (EWI) Ms. Connie Reichert and Vice -President of Guangzhou Risong Intelligent Technology Holding Co., Ltd Dr. ErBin Liu.

Thirty-eight non-degree seeking undergraduate students and one MS student who are currently studying at the College of Engineering through partnerships between UK and BJUT attended the reception. The Dean introduced the excellences of the College of Engineering and encouraged the students to well spend their two years at the UK. The chair of Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering Dr. Michael Johnson, Directors of Graduate Studies (DGS) of ECE, ME, CE, and MSE and Directors of Undergraduate Students of ME and MSE also attended. The DGSs introduced the excellence of their faculty research and graduate program to attract the students to come back to UK for graduate studies after they take their fourth year of courses at BJUT to finish their BS degrees.

The Dean visited Shanghai University, University of Shanghai for Science and Technology, Shanghai Institute of Technology, Zhejiang University of Technology, and Huazhong University of Science and Technology and met with their engineering administrators to discuss possible partnerships with the College of Engineering.)

They have finished their first year of undergraduate studies at BJUT and will return back to BJUT for their fourth year to finish their BS degree at BJUT after their two years of studies at UK. Seventeen such students came to UK through the same partnership agreement in fall 2018 and have finished their first year of studies at UK.)
