The Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge (HZMB), which is both the longest sea crossing and the longest fixed link on the planet, is not only a
marvel of architectural engineering, but also an important link in the close cooperation between Guangdong, Hong Kong, and Macao. On
April 16 and 23, 2021, Associate Professor Xi Li, FITM Executive Associate Dean, Assistant Professor Cindy Wang, Assistant Professor James
Shen, FITM Program Coordinator, Liona Ieong, Senior Supervisor led two batches of students to visit HZMB Science Education Base and Zhuhai-Macao Port Artificial Island, in order to strengthen our college's teachers' and students' deep integration with the construction.
The students visited the HZMB video and audio electronic sand table, the integrated monitoring system of the bridge, and watched a
documentary about the bridge construction project while accompanied by a professional interpreter. Following the observation, the students stated that the magnificent HZMB could not be separated from the hard work of professionals from various fields, which motivates them to
study hard and devote themselves to social development in the future. Throughout the process, the staff actively and enthusiastically
responded to the students' curiosity and questions about this fantastic project.
Following the visit, the teachers and students boarded a bus to the artificial island of the Zhuhai-Macao port, where they viewed the bridge
from the observation deck of "Wang Qiao Station" and took a group photo to cap off the outdoor teaching trip. The HZMB visit lasted three
hours and was jam-packed with information. All of the teachers and students who participated in the visit were proud of the "dragon" that
connected the three locations and gained a professional interpretation when they felt the strength of the motherland.
