Students from UESTC (University of Electronic Science and Technology of China) have designed a free mobile app to support Chinese speaking visitors to the University of Oxford museums. The project was an integral part of an academic programme delivered by Summit Education Enterprise in Oxford.
The students who travelled to Oxford from Chengdu in the Sichuan Province of China enjoyed a full programme of lectures and workshops delivered by members of the University of Oxford academic community. Helen Adams, Project Curator and Engagement Officer of the Pitt Rivers Museum said “We are thrilled with the outputs of this project and have been constantly surprised and impressed with the aptitude, enthusiasm and adaptability of the students, not just because of their obvious technical knowledge in terms of programming and graphic design, but also because we were having to communicate quite complex ideas to each other in English. We look forward to promoting the new app on various channels.”.
At Summit Education Enterprise, we are very proud of the achievements of the students on our academic programmes, and we look forward to more projects in the future.
