Following the theme "carrying forward the scientific ethos and observing academic norms", the graduate student union and colleges of the university have held a multiplicity of online activities to further strengthen students' awareness of scientific integrity and academic standards. On top of that, they also invited seasoned teachers and students to carry out a series of online tutoring to help graduate students learn about science and technology competition more intuitively, clearly and specifically, thus increasing students' participation in such contest and their capabilities to compete.
The BJUT teachers and students' joint engagement in the virtual festival for two months add unique hallmarks of the pandemic times to the 10th BJUT Cultural Festival.
