China’s Gifted, Dedicated Engineers Will Make Chinese Navy World BestPosted: July 5, 2017
SCMP describes China’s top engineer Rear Admiral Ma Weiming in its report “The top engineer with the key to China’s dream of having the world’s most powerful navy” today.
The report says that almost every research topic Ma has studied in recent years has been applied in actual equipment on Chinese warships. Ma is called the father of China’s electromagnetic catapult has also developed the technology to make China’s nuclear submarines quieter than their top US counterparts.
SCMP says that Ma is nominated to receive PLA’s top honor Order of August 1 award.
What is especially interesting is that Ma proves it wrong that China depends on the US for the training of its top scientists and engineers. Ma has received no education or training abroad. He graduated from the PLA Naval University of Engineering in Wuhan, Hubei, in 1987 and earned a PhD in electrical engineering from Tsinghua University in 1996.
SCMP says, “Ma has cultivated more than 400 masters and doctoral students at the naval university since the late 1980s.”
China can cultivate world best scientists and engineers. With such talents and abundant funds, China will certainly be able to have world best navy.
