Hui Jing

Exchange student from China

At ESME, I learned a lot through the hands-on projects that we worked on with our laboratory professors. I gained a great deal of specific technical knowledge. It’s also really fun to live and study in Paris, one of the world’s greatest cities! Dealing with cultural dif ferences made me more mature, and I learned to see the world in a different light.
