OFFshore ITRH member Wenhua Zhao recently attended the opening ceremony of the 2019 International Summer School on Naval Architecture, Ocean Engineering and Mechanics at Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU). As an invited keynote speaker, Wenhua addressed both students and professors on the importance of ocean engineering and its various aspects, including climate change, renewables, and aqua-culture.
The international summer school provides an opportunity for PhD and Master’s students to learn about the latest theories and applications in naval architecture, ocean engineering and mechanics through academic and cultural immersion. A wide range of courses in various disciplines are offered by world-class professionals and researchers, and is combined with local excursions, cultural activities and field trips.
The summer school runs over two weeks and includes lectures by international scholars, seminars, poster exhibitions, museum and cultural tours, field trips to research institutions and industry scientific research labs.
Wenhua’s opening address was well received by both students and professors alike and set a positive tone for the international course. Since its inception in 2009, the summer school has been providing a valuable learning opportunity and forum for students from around the world.
