There’s no doubt I enjoyed this internship very much, and I’m 100% positive that it is nothing like what my classmates were doing in other places. During the time, I got to work on different kinds of interesting research projects, gained much hands-on experience in the multicultural working environment, and got to participate in all kinds of swissnex China events, which are always very cool and fun. And apart from all that, I got to meet and know the swissnex China group. Everyone has been so nice and friendly, and the office is constantly filled with laughter, not to mention the always-full snack table. I will definitely miss being here with everyone.
I’ve learnt a lot from this experience. I’ve accompanied professors from Switzerland to various meetings, thus having the opportunity to have a close look at other disciplines which I certainly would not have the chance to otherwise. For example, I’ve attended a meeting about urban planning and transportation, and even tried out the driving simulator of the metro. I’ve done lots of cool researches about innovation in China, such as 3D printing, e-commerce and android phones. I’ve even done some cultural tour with our foreign guests, and learnt something more about my hometown Shanghai. These experiences helped me tremendously in terms of interpersonal relationships, research ability, as well as working in professional environment. Though I’ve not yet decided what I’m going to do in the future, I am sure the experience at swissnex China would be beneficial in any way.
Farewell my friends, ’till we meet again.
