ITEE PhD Student Receives Award from Chinese GovernmentOctober 08 2013
ITEE PhD Candidate from the School of Engineering, Bin Huang, received the award of “Outstanding Self-Financed Students Abroad” from the China Scholarship Council for his excellent research and academic community service activities. The Chinese government award is given annually to 500 Chinese students studying globally for outstanding achievements in research and studies. Bin is one of only two students from South Australia to receive the award this year.
Bin received his award from Chinese Ambassador Mr Yuming Chen and Minister-Counselor Professor Zhongshang Li (pictured) at a ceremony held at the Chinese Embassy in Canberra on 14th March 2013. Professor Li selected Bin to give a speech on behalf of all awardees at the ceremony.
Bin Huang, who submitted his PhD thesis on Roll Pass Design in January 2013, says “I would like to thank my supervisors Dr. Ke Xing, Prof. Kazem Abhary and Dr. Sead Spuzic for their supervision and kind support. I also want to give my special thanks to UniSA and ITEE for providing me with the opportunity for PhD research and financial support through the UPS scholarship”. Bin Huang’s research looked into hot rolling as a way to reduce the thickness or profile of long metals in manufacturing, which resulted in proposed multi-disciplinary strategies and frameworks to optimise the process to improve quality, productivity and resource consumption for manufacturers.
