To further propel in sharing educational resources of high quality, promote in communication and cooperation in doctoral education, set an innovative environment for graduate education, cultivate top-notch innovative talents, and strengthen the industry-college-institute cooperation, HIT graduate department will host the 13th Academic Forum for Doctoral Students in Mechanical Engineering. This forum takes “Seeking Truth and Being Practical, Carrying Pioneering Spirit and Being Innovative, Learning for Practical Uses and Serving the Whole Society” as its theme, and which based on the principle of high-start, high-level and high-quality. This forum will focus on reports, communication and discussion, which will provide an academic communication platform for doctoral students. It aims to facilitate the intersection of disciplines, to strengthen the connection among doctoral students who have related majors and fields from International prestigious universities, to broaden academic vision and stimulate the creative thinking of doctoral students, and to reinforce the sense of mission and responsibility in doctoral students. All contributions and participants are welcomed.
