At the meeting, in order to make doctoral students of engineering and supervisors from outside fully communicate with each other and jointly improve the training mechanism, all of them were divided into 4 groups for free discussions. The Research Institute also invited 2 doctors from Tsinghua University to participate in the discussion for each group according to their majors.
Each group made a lively and in-depth discussion on how to realize the effective combination of scientific research and engineering, how to improve the capacity of interdisciplinary integration and innovation, how to guide students’ training by supervisors from outside, and how to realize thesis collaboration. The doctoral students actively put forward their own ideas and train of thoughts, while the supervisors provided professional guidance based on their professional knowledge and research experience. Finally, representatives from each group delivered summary statement on their discussion results.
