  • 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.
