Dozens of overseas students from Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) visited ports and a museum in Shanghai on July 8 to learn about China's maritime development.

At the Yangshan Deep-water Port, which is China's largest container terminal, the students were told its history and significance, and got on the sightseeing platform to appreciate the magnificence of the key national engineering project.

The students then travelled to the China Maritime Museum in Pudong district to trace the history of China's maritime industry as well as its shining achievements.

The trip is part of SJTU's Knowing China course, which consists of classroom teaching and field studies to deepen overseas students' understanding of China's economic and social achievements as well as its traditional culture.

The courses include topics ranging from Chinese culture, economy to etiquette and moral cultivation, advance manufacturing, higher education, law and health. The destinations for field studies include Yangshan Port, China Maritime Museum and Pujiang Green Valley Practice Teaching Base.
