Summary

On this, the 60th anniversary of Beihang University (formerly known as the Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, or BUAA), we visit some of the achievements of this prestigious Chinese institution in all manner of research fields related to air, land, sea, and space travel. Each of the schools featured in this booklet showcases their latest innovations, discoveries, and research in many and varied science and engineering disciplines. These scientists and engineers are particularly adept at generating designs that are biologically inspired, borrowing the best systems from nature and applying them to create more effective technologies for human use.

From the nanoscale to the macroscale, advances being made at Beihang University are pushing the boundaries of what we can achieve, moving us toward what will be.
