From the 21st of February 2009 until the 14th of March 2009 28 students from the electrical engineering department will go to China to come in contact with the Chinese technology and culture. The main part of the tour will take place in the cities Beijing, Nanjing, Shanghai, Hangzhou, Shenzhen and Hong Kong. These regions clearly show how China went through an enormous development, became a world power and is still growing in many fields.

This study trip is being organized by e.t.s.v. Thor in cooperation with IEEE SBE. With this trip we want to give students the opportunity to develop themselves and gain international experience. To achieve this, the students will visit educational institutions and companies. They will also come into contact with the Chinese culture. In this way they will get to know the specific qualities of this culture and learn how these values make their way to the Chinese way of doing business. These are very useful skills for students that want to become an electrical engineer.

This website will contain information for interested students or employees, the participants and companies who want to come in contact with the trip. It will be the starting point for our Close-up ON The Asian Culture & Technology !
