Through a variety of methods, we assist overseas students from different nations in getting over cultural barriers, overcoming linguistic barriers, and fully comprehending cutting-edge civil engineering subjects. It gave participating students a fresh perspective on Chinese culture and offered a fresh direction for their future professional growth and career planning.
