Rotary Macau Vocational Visit to University of Macau New Campus at Hengqin
Rotary Club of Macau on July 19, 2014 organized a vocational visit to University of Macau new campus at Hengqin 橫琴. A delegation of 40 (including Rotarians . Alumni and Rotaractors from RC Macau, Rotaractors from HK Island East and Pudu Malaysia as well as PDG Jason, DGN Eric and Area 1 AG Synthia) marched into the one square kilometer campus under a welcoming sun. We visited their 1000-seat theatre, 800-seat auditorium, huge function hall, library and student dormitory and were truly impressed.
The new campus, with 60+ buildings and 280+ labs, is 20 times larger than before. It is under Macao jurisdiction and connected to Macao by underwater tunnel for vehicle and pedestrian without immigration control. Apart from academic degrees, the university will share resources with Macao community by offering practical courses to working people in Macao to improve Macao residents’ competitiveness to contribute to economic diversification in Macao.
The interesting tour ended with a wonderful fellowship dim sum lunch with plenty of name card exchanges with visiting Rotaractors.
