Established in 1920, Harbin Institute of Technology has remained as one of the key universities supported by the Chinese central government. HIT was designated in 1996 as one of the first national leading universities to be included in“Project 211” for preferential support, and became one of the top nine national leading universities in China to be included in “Project 985”in 1999. These nine universities later became the C9 League in 2009 which is referred to as the Chinese equivalent of the US Ivy League. The C9 League was formed to promote more resources sharing, cooperative training, and joint research projects among the best universities in China.

Shenzhen city, south-central Guangdong (province), southeastern China. It lies along the coast of the South China Sea and immediately north of Hong Kong. In 1979 Shenzhen was a small border city of some 30,000 inhabitants that served as a customs stop into mainland China from Hong Kong. That year, it was declared a special economic zone—i.e., one of several cities along the coast of China that were opened to foreign investment, technology, and managerial expertise through the establishment of foreign-owned, joint-venture, and other business enterprises without the prior approval of the central government.
The city also features contemporary buildings, such as the 600m-tall skyscraper Ping An International Finance Centre, and a number of amusement parks.
The rapid growth rate in the region became known in China as “Shenzhen speed,” and the success of the project prompted the Chinese government to convert several other coastal cities into special economic zones and to encourage modernization in different fields.
Railways from Shenzhen stretch northwest to Guangzhou (Canton), north to Beijing, and east to Fujian province. Expressways also connect the city with Guangzhou as well as other coastal cities in the province. A major international airport and large seaport container terminals have been built on the city’s outskirts.
In Shenzhen, the wet season is hot, oppressive, and overcast and the dry season is comfortable, windy, and mostly clear. Over the course of the year, the temperature typically varies from 55°F to 89°F and is rarely below 46°F or above 93°F.
