The newly opened Beijing Daxing International Airport features cutting-edge technology and intelligent services and is expected to become one of the world's busiest and most advanced airports.

Shanghai's Tongji University made some significant contributions to the airport's development as it carried out six major research topics related to the airport and established a team to supervise progress on its construction.

Completing the Daxing airport on schedule has proved to be a difficult task due to its large scale, high standards, and numerous investors.

In April, 2018, the Civil Aviation Administration of China invited Tongji University to act as general manager for supervising progress on construction and preparations for its operation.

A control team led by an experienced professor from the unviersity's engineering management institute was then formed, consisting of high-level faculty, doctors, and postgraduates.

Thanks to highly accurate measurements and the clever use of scientific methods, the team managed to reduce construction time on the airport by 1.7 months.

"Tongji University's strength in engineering management and its many successful consultancy practices is what led to its effective supervision," an industry expert conjectured.

Teachers and students also provided technical support in planning, design, management, and construction.

For example, Ling Jianming's team from the university's transportation college conducted research on intelligent transportation technology, which was later used in the airport.

A number of graduates from Tongji University played an important role in the airport's construction, serving as decision makers, designers, and supervisors.
