  • Beihang University, also known as "University of Aeronautics and Astronautics of Beijing", is a public University in Beijing founded in 1952. Its campus is located in the Haidian District. I met her in the context of an academic trip to the Chinese capital, and is one of this country's elite universities in terms of their level of research and development in the area of engineering Aeronautics and Astronautics. Except for researchers or technicians in the mentioned fields, I do not consider it an attraction for the average tourist.

  • 曾经,这是我的梦想高校;今天,我终于看到了他的全貌,也走过了他的每一个犄角旮旯,心生敬畏,同时又心有不甘;心生嫉妒,同时又无能为力。但愿这一次行走与北航能够给我带来新一轮的学习动力,我心里知道,这一次必将会给我带来收获。
