In October 2018, a delegation led by President Willie Donnelly, from Waterford Institute of Technology visited HEBUT Langfang & Tianjin Campus, China.

During the visit President Willie Donnelly proposed and presented on potential research collaborations between TSSG Research Centre at WIT and The College of Electronic Engineering, at HEBUT.

HEBUT also introduced their National Engineering Research Centre (TRIZ) to Dr. Patrick Lynch, a Co-founder and Director of RIKON, WIT.

The visit was a great success and both HEBUT and TSSG are working together to strengthen international ties.
