Academician Yang’s team has been diligent, innovative, and fruitful over the years. Among the major breakthroughs, three key technologies are involved. One is the key technology of high-performance hydraulic components, the second is the research of immersion system of  lithography machines, and the third is the key technology and industrial equipment of automated assembly of aircrafts. The scientists strived under tremendous pressure to break the blockade line of overseas high-technology, and mastered core technologies in the global science field, highlighting the achievement of the dream of Chinese manufacturing, and even the control over the right to speak in some areas.

Particularly, academician Yang mentioned that nowadays, China is suffering from the stress of a “bi-directional transfer” and the risk of “hollowing-out industry” keeps increasing, under which circumstances China can only realize intelligent manufacturing and intelligence to survive. He hoped that students can be dedicated in researching, studying and applying their knowledge in practice. “Technology is the most powerful productive force”—the future of China needs our creation, the intelligent manufacturing of China requires our energy, and the achievement of Chinese bright prospect on the road to revival calls for the efforts of every one. In addition, academician Yang made a demanding of the cultivation of students from CKC Honors College in four aspects: Firstly, we should have hands-on ability; Secondly, we ought to have science understanding; Thirdly, we need to cultivate an international horizon; Last but not least, we should develop the spirit of entrepreneurship.
