  • João Graça Gomes

    My name is João Graça Gomes, and I joined China-UK Low Carbon College and Shanghai Jiao Tong University more than 1 year ago, to study Power Engineering. It was at the University of Lisbon, in Portugal, that I had my first meeting with Shanghai Jiao Tong. I applied only for one single university, Shanghai Jiao Tong, because in my view I would only accept to be in such a great school, where exceptional scientists like Qian Xuesen developed their work. n addition to a learning space about climate change, my college, in the past year, has become a space of communion and unity among people from diverse backgrounds, professional areas, and generations. It became a space of union of several continents and different viewpoints of the world. China-UK Low Carbon College has acted not only as an engineering graduate school but also as a real school of life.

  • Enigbokan Titilayo Rachel

    My name is Enigbokan Titilayo Rachel and come from Nigeria. When I left my country in 2018 to pursue a Master’s degree in Low Carbon Energy Engineering at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, I had very many expectations. I faced many difficulties in Shanghai. While with the support of the international student’s office and my college friends, my academic and living requirements became much easier soon. In order to prepare us for life beyond the university, my college regularly organized trips to industrial facilities. Those trips enhanced my appreciation for the theories taught in the classroom, and motivated me to work harder. They also regularly invited business executives and renowned academics to give enlightening talks and seminars. I have learned a lot about the Chinese businessenvironment from those lectures. I have thoroughly enjoyed my stay here as a student, and look forward to facilitating greater exchanges between Nigeria and China in the future.

  • Sergio Sammarchi

    I come from a well known university in Italy, but the moment I found out about LCC I knew I had to continue my studies there. LCC offers a new future-proof focus on environmental chal-lenges that our modern society has to face, with the necessary international approach of cooperation and exchange.
