Celebrating National Day 2018


Origin of Chinese National Day

The People’s Republic of China (PRC) was founded on September 21, 1949, with a ceremony commemorating the forming of the Central People's Government taking place in Tiananmen Square on October 1 that year. The Central People's Government passed a resolution declaring October 1 to be the Chinese National Day.

From that time Chinese National Day is celebrated on October 1st every year to commemorate the founding of People’s Republic of China and many large-scaled activities are held nationwide. The 7-day holiday from Oct. 1st to 7th is called 'Golden Week', during which a large number of Chinese people travel around the country. 

Today, China is open and inclusive with hundreds of millions of talented people contributing to the great progress of technology in China.  

China is now an advanced industrial and technological economy: China built the world's largest filled-aperture radio telescope, the five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical Radio Telescope (FAST); 

People are used to buying things online and using mobile phone to make payments; The convenient high-speed rail network makes travel easier.

For 69 years, China has overcome many difficulties. For 69 years, China has strived ahead for a better future through all these challenges. Tianjin University people from all walks of life are working hard to contribute to the the great rejuvenation of the Motherland.

CCTV official Weibo has given a thumbs up to teacher Qi Lan, who is often correcting students’ homework continuously for 6 hours each night. 

Students posted teacher Na Yisha’s “fantastic blackboard writing” on Weibo and gave it the thumbs up for the writing neat words with clear knowledge and illustrations. The picture of the blackboard writing has become famous and popular among the students and teachers of TJU. 

Teacher Jia Shaoyi, from the School of Chemical Engineering and Technology is teaching on the small platform where he has worked day and night for 36 years, producing so many prominent students around the world. Loving his students and the whole country, he is a model for all the teachers as he has cultivated generations of talent for the motherland by using countless chalks and textbooks.

Teacher Liu Xijun, School of Mechanical Engineering earns his students’ sincere love as he takes a practical approach and sets himself up as an example. His ‘Dragon wash, chime and wind tunnel tests’ are a reflection of his teaching idea of ”combining teaching and practice”. Although he has diligently worked for decades on such a small platform, he has gained so much happiness by working hard and he never forgets his divine task of educating students and delivering knowledge

His black hair has turned white for he has been working so hard since his youth. 

Teacher Zhang Sherong, from the School of Civil Engineering and although he has been teaching for more than 30 years he is as passionate and respectful as he was when he taught students the first time. He has never stopped his innovation and exploration of teaching methods for undergraduates. He has taught students who go around the world who stand in the forefront of “Big Engineering” by being mindful of numerous little details.

Teacher Zhang Yuqin, is from the School of Mathematics. Someone has said that advanced maths is what troubles students. But her students have said: “We love the subject for we love the person”. In the classroom of advanced maths in the morning there are few people, but in the “Q-A group” it becomes a little noisy late in the afternoon. We can see her kind smile for she is Mrs. Zhang to whom we are grateful for passing on a teacher’s morality to generations of students. She is Mother Zhang who cares for all the students and educates us without discrimination.
