The opening of the first Undergraduate Outstanding Graduation Design Works of the Southwest University of Science and Technology (SWUST) Exhibition was held by the Academic Affairs Office of SWUST on 19 June. Containing more than 100 pieces, the exhibition includes work from several undergraduate majors; Architecture, Urban and Rural Planning, Environmental Design, Visual Communication Design and Industrial Design from the School of Civil Engineering, the School of Literature and Arts, and the School of Manufacturing Science. It was inaugurated at the Yifu Library in the new campus.
Those who attended the opening ceremony included Shang Liping, Vice President of SWUST, as well as senior staff from the Academic Affairs Office, the library, the School of Civil Engineering, the School of Literature and Arts, the School of manufacturing Science, and more than 100 teachers and students from relevant majors.
At the opening ceremony, Ms. Shang said that all the works had unique forms and innovative features. She explained that each piece showed the unremitting and the persistent pursuit of the teachers and students of those five majors. She said the graduation works exhibition is not only a showcase of student achievement over the past four years, but also a reflection of excellent teaching within the schools. Moreover, she hoped that the exhibition could achieve scale and brand effect, so as to provide strong support for the professional construction of SWUST, offer more materials for cultural construction of SWUST, and create a positive teaching atmosphere across the university.
After the opening ceremony, Ms. Shang, together with teachers and students, visited the undergraduate outstanding graduation design works. The exhibition remains open until October.
The exhibition theme is “Full Bloom”, a title symbolizing how the works will create a glowing impression on viewers. The works of Architectural majors express their design concept of “green and energy-saving” and show the renewal and design of traditional villages and towns. Urban Planning majors, based on the level of rural revitalization and urban construction, pay much attention to the development of rural industry and the coordinated planning of urban and rural areas. The works from Environmental Design majors reflect the design of a sustainable human environment. The works from Visual Communication Design majors embody the diversified product design that enhances the quality of life. The works from Industrial Design majors focus on the need of the advanced industry 4.0 era (Internet plus Manufacturing) and lay emphasis on the design and innovation of industrial products.
