IKCEST Silk Road Training Base Held the 53rd Training Programme for Silk Road Engineering Science and Technology Development on Training on Innovative Application of IOT Theory and Practice
The 53rd IKCEST Training Programme for Silk Road Engineering Science and Technology Development themed on Innovative Training on Application of IOT Theory and Practice was held in Xingqing Campus of Xi’an Jiaotong University from May 13th to 24th. It was co-hosted by the International Knowledge Centre for Engineering Sciences and Technology (IKCEST) under the Auspices of UNESCO and Xi’an Jiaotong University, and organized by IKCEST Silk Road Training Base. A total of 135 foreign undergraduate students from Xi’an Jiaotong University, Xi’an Shiyou University and Xidian University registered for the workshop. They were from over 18 Belt-road countries, such as Pakistan, Kazakhstan, and Ethiopia etc.
The training programme lasted for about 10 days, and the following lectures such as Smart Device and System for Internet of Things, Explain the Answer Skill and Typical Questions for HSK 3, Introduction of Test-taking Skills for HSK 4, The Internet of Things and Smarter Life, Big Data Processing and Deep-learning, Internet of Things and Wireless Communication, Historical and Economic Background of Silk Road Economic Belt, Introduction to Artificial Intelligence were given by the experienced professors in Xi’an Jiaotong University. The teachers gave clear, vivid examples to make the topics deep-going but easy to understand. The students benefited a lot from it and discussed with the teacher after the lectures.
In addition, in order to deepen the students' understanding of IOT development, the training set up a technical visit that is closely related to the courses. On the afternoon of May 23rd over 30 foreign students were led to visit Chinasoft International (CSI). CSI is a large IT talent training institution and an important supporting platform for the rapid development of software and outsourcing business. During the visit, staff from CSI introduced the business and development of CSI in detail and had a lively discussion with them.
Till now, the IKCEST Silk Road Training Base has successfully held 53 training programmes. This training programme, as an important work of IKCEST Silk Road Training Base, will play important role in training more talents for the Belt-road countries and better serving to the development of the Belt and Road Initiative. It also made important contributions to the economic and social development of European, Asian and African Belt-road countries and regions.
The International Knowledge Centre for Engineering Sciences and Technology (shortened as “IKCEST”) is a category II centre under the auspices of UNESCO. IKCEST was established on June 2, 2014. The Chinese Academy of Engineering is responsible for the operation and management of the IKCEST. IKCEST aims at providing knowledge-based services at a global scale in the form of consultancies, scientific research and education for policy-makers and engineering science and technology professionals in the world, with particular reference to the developing countries. In February 2017, based in Xi'an Jiaotong University, IKCEST Silk Road Training Base was established, which aims to train more engineering and technological talents for Belt-Road countries.
