Deputy Secretary Sha Aimin welcomed Dr. Mark Levin's visit and briefly introduced the school's development history, campus distribution, academic characteristics and personnel training. He pointed out that our school has continuously exerted the characteristics of the industry for many years, and has trained a large number of professional and technical talents and industry management talents for the transportation field. The teachers, students and alumni of the school presided over or participated in the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge, the Hangzhou Bay Bridge, the Zhongnanshan Tunnel and many others. Major engineering construction projects in the field of national infrastructure construction have also played an important role. He said that the contribution of the IPCC in the international community is obvious to all. Chang'an University has also done a lot of related work and research in the fields of climate change and energy environment. I hope that the visit of Dr. Mark Levin and his entourage will open the two sides in relevant fields. Cooperation and exchange.
