In July 2010, eighteen enthusiatic undergraduates from Beijing University of Chemical Technology (BUCT) came to Cambridge for a summer school. They were here for a two week Cambridge-BUCT 2010 Summer Academics and Students Visiting Program, from 17th to 28th July.

They attended a series of lectures in multidisciplinary subjects, seminars given by industrial companies and external professors, lab tours and laboratory sessions. There were also talks from the Chinese Embassy Education Section and the China-Britain Business Council. They got to meet some of our current postgraduate students and take part in intercultural activities with them.

Beijing University of Chemical Technology (BUCT) is one of China's key institutions of higher learning. It is affiliated to the Ministry of Education, and is a comprehensive university with a core curriculum of science, engineering, economic management, language and other liberal arts. The university has a wide focus on national education and scientific research. It also plays an important role in the development of the national economy. BUCT is dedicated to establishing long term collaboration/cooperation with other universities and organizations in China and abroad; it aims to become one of the top level universities in the world.

In 2009, a group of academic delegates led by vice president Prof Biaohua Chen visited the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology, University of Cambridge and met with many members of the Department. A long term comprehensive and constructive collaboration is currently under development with the aims of establishing key research interests between the Universities and gaining a mutual understanding of culture, education, research and student experience within the two institutions.

This year's summer visiting program focused on cultivating research interests, and gaining experience and expertise. In the future, the initiative hopes to create government funded projects for PhD candidates.
