Pesident Wang expressed warm welcome to Mr. Zhao and delegation. He said that, as one of the leading universities involved in Project 211 and Project 985 directly under the administration of the Ministry of Education, UESTC had developed itself into a multidisciplinary research university covering all branches of the electronics, with information science and technology as its kernel specialization, a university with major interest in engineering while gradually penetrating into different fields of science, management and humanities.
