Virtual Book Launch
14 January 2021
Webinar via Zoom, from 9.00 to 10.00
On 14 January 2021, SUPSI Vice President Claudio Boër will present the book "Fundamentals of Machine Manufacturing Technology" together with co-author Prof. Wangyu Liu.

Fundamentals of Machine Manufacturing Technology, is the title of an English-language textbook published in August 2020 by South China University of Technology (SCUT) Press and written jointly by Professor Claudio Boër, Vice-President of SUPSI, and Professor Wangyu Liu, head of the course of the same name at SCUT.

It is the first example of a textbook in the field of engineering written by Chinese and Swiss professors and represents one of the many fruitful Sino-Swiss collaborations that have sprung up in seventy years of diplomatic relations between the two countries.

While the textbook has the potential to promote and improve academic exchanges between Chinese and Swiss professors, lecturers and students in the field, it also has the potential to promote the precision manufacturing technologies for which Switzerland is renowned in Chinese industry.

To celebrate its publication, Swissnex China is organising a virtual event on 14 January in collaboration with SUPSI. The event will bring together the two authors, the academics who contributed to the book, and a representative of Swiss industry to give the public an insight into the birth of this valuable collaboration, in the hope of inspiring Chinese and Swiss researchers to undertake similar initiatives.
