From July 27th 30th, President Li Yanrong led a delegation to visit to four universities—Charles Sturt University (CSU), University of Technology, Sydney (UTS), The University of New South Wales (UNSW) in Australia and Victoria University of Wellington (VUW) in New Zealand. This visit is aimed at promoting short-term exchange programs. We hope that through such exchange programs, internationalized student cultivation of UESTC could be strengthened.

On July 27th, the delegation paid a visit to Wagga Wagga's campus of Charles Sturt University. CSU specializes in agronomy, police major, information and network security, horsebreaker and red wine major.
