The purpose of this first session is to help freshmen choose a major. Each of the two teachers described the characteristics of his major, employment outlook, and future development of the discipline so that students can be informed and guided to make a right decision. The two professors further gave details about their research and invited students to participate in their research projects. Students were very interested and asked many questions about the research topics as well as advice on choosing a major.

It is reported that in the upcoming sessions of the Technology Salon, Profs. Wenjie Wan and Hua Bao will share their research topics. In addition, JI Innovation Club will sponsor a forum for members to exchange ideas about their innovation projects.
