Feedback from participants

“CUMT has the state-of-the-art laboratory equipment in mining area, which offers a very good atmosphere for scientific research and unforgettable experience for students when taking their courses. I feel lucky to have a good time there with the students in the Summer School.”-- Prof. Piotr Malkowski, AGH University of Science and Technology, Poland, Course Director of Rock Geology Investigations

“I was greatly attracted by the Chinese traditional history. The Taiji, Calligraphy, and rubbings of Han Dynasty left me deep impressions. On the other hand, the modernization of this country changed my mind on the development of China. I really learned a lot from the Chinese economy and society.” -- Carolina Bruecker, RWTH Aachen University, Germany
