It is hoped that more UTM students (Civil and Chemical engineering as well) will be able to join this programme in 2020, GOP 2020 to SJTU. The issue of how to save our environment is our issue.
After the LCC program, UTM students managed to visit the oldest mosque in Shanghai, the Songjiang Mosque. It was first built during the dynasty ruled by Kublai Khan.
