Recently, Zeng Yujin and Jin Ke, members of the research group led by Associate Professor Li shanshan, published an academic paper titled A low cost and portable smartphone microscopic device for cell counting on the Sensors & Actuators: A. Physical (Impact Factor 2.499, WOS JCR Q1). Both of them are currently seniors in the School of Mechanical Engineering of HEBUT, which serves as the only communication unit of the paper.

Based on her technical capabilities and research direction, Prof. Li provided the students with technical instructions and guidance in developing their learning plans in accordance with their personal orientation. In addition, she also allowed them to do much extra-curricular training in MEMs and other related fields.

In the paper, the authors developed an easy-to-use cell-counting system and realized automatic/manual counting for diary somatic cells through a home-coded Android application. The application will be used in the rapid test of the quality of raw milk.

Also, the two optical microscopy imaging systems developed in connection with this paper won Gold Medal Award in the 7th Global Competition on Systematic Innovation, First Prize in the 10th International Contest of Innovation in 2016, and First Prize in the 4th “Sharing Cup” Service and Innovation Contest for Scientific and Technological Resources Sharing of University Students’.

In recent years, the School of Mechanical Engineering of HEBUT has attached great importance to the quality training for postgraduates and undergraduates. Relying on the construction plan of first-class disciplines within the School of Mechanical Engineering and the construction of the key laboratory for robot perception and Man-Machine Fusion in Hebei Province, it has vigorously introduced high-level talents and continuously increased funding with an effort to enhance the cultivation of practical ability and scientific and technological innovation capabilities for the students. It has also deepened reform in the training mechanism, further strengthened mentors’ position as the first responsible person in the training of postgraduates, and introduced effective policies such as undergraduate tutorial system and cooperative training of undergraduates. All these efforts are expected to boost the cultivation of undergraduates and postgraduates.
