With the support from Labs China and UA internal resource, UA conducted 5 lectures to 4 UA member schools from 20th to 31st Mar, 2013.
680 students, 16 faculties from Fudan University, Southeast University, Nanjing University and China University of Petroleum got a basic knowledge on what is SAP HANA, how will SAP run the software on SAP HANA, and what’s the benefit of SAP HANA through the lecture.
Especially on 23rd March, 2013, Li Yong from President Office was invited to give a lecture to 60+ students taking their master’s program from Software Engineering of Fudan University themed – “Cloud, Mobile, Big Data: New Innovative Opportunities in the Internet Era”. He explained in great details on what SAP HANA is and how it could impact today’s businesses and the opportunities it brings. Hasso’s book was also introduced during the Q&A session and it was a great hit among the students.
Quote from student: It was GREAT to learn from the real expert with the real experience from actual projects. I think this is a good way for us to link to the most cutting-edge technology and methodology in the field.
Quote from professor: The lecture was impressive! My favorite is Design Thinking, it’s an interesting and inspiring topic! The fact is we really need our students be more open and creative so I think this could be a good approach for their exercises and assignments. Thanks to SAP for sharing it to us!
