Tsinghua University Student Office Tour

7 computer science students from Tsinghua University, the prestigious university in China, visited the Mujin office!

Starting with technical explanations from our Mujin engineers, from showing live demonstrations of our industrial solutions powered by the Mujin controller to exchanging casual conversation over lunch from our office buffet, we hope we were able to provide a fun-filled experience!

We feel that interacting with such energetic, driven and enthusiastic students also had a refreshing and positive influence on our Mujin engineers as well.

Thank you for choosing to visit Mujin and we hope the day was an enjoyable one!
