During the meeting prospective students asked many questions about educational and admissions processes.


After the meeting Chinese pupils were guided through the training laboratory of the Institute №6 “Aerospace” with genuine samples of rocket and space technology and the training laboratory of Department №101 “Design and certification of aviation equipment” with real sized aircraft.
