  • 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.

  • Once, this was my dream College, and today I finally see him in the picture, also had gone through his every cranny, awed, but also feel aggrieved; jealous, and powerless. I wish it had a walk with BUAA to give me a new motivation, I know in my heart, and this time I will bring the harvest.
