It is also a warm-up event for the centennial celebration of the Institute, which is especially meaningful. With more than six months of preparation for this exhibition, there are more than 200 invaluable photo entries from teachers, students, staff and alumni. These pictures depicted the good times and experiences of study and work.

These photos are precious memories and important spiritual wealth of each other.
