What follows is a transcript of the conversation which has been slightly condensed, and edited for clarity:

Host: First of all, thank you obviously for your time, Mr. Wu. Could you please give us a brief introduction of CUST?
Mr. Wu: Sure. Changsha University of Science & Technology (CUST) is an engineering-centered multidisciplinary university integrating engineering, science, management, economics, liberal arts and law, with strong disciplinary advantages and prominent features in the industries of communications, electric power and water conservancy. The university is jointly established by the Central Government and Hunan Provincial Government, mainly under the administration of Hunan Province. 

Host: Where is CUST?
Mr. Wu: Well, CUST is located in Changsha city of Hunan province, a well-known historical and cultural city with a history of more than two thousand years. Changsha boasts over-thousand-year-old Yuelu Academy and Mawangdui Han Dynasty Tombs, bamboo slips of Wu in ancient Three Kingdoms. It is also a modern city which can develop magnetic levitated train and super computer. Changsha is the hometown of outstanding talents in large number, such as the late Chairman Mao Zedong, the late Deputy Chairman Liu Shaoqi, former Premier Zhu Rongji, and the late hero Lei Feng and so on. Changsha's geographic location is excellent with Yangtze River and Dongting Lake (including scenery spots as Yueyang Tower) to the north and Hengshan Mountain to the south (one of China's Five Sacred Mountains). It takes only several hours by train to the world heritage---Zhangjiajie National Geographic Park. Zhangjiajie is known as "nature labyrinth" where "each step takes one into a whole new world of breathtaking beauty." With an annual mean temperature of 16 degrees Celsius, warm winters and cool summers, Zhangjiajie is fit for tours all the year round.

Host: Sounds interesting. How about living and learning of CUST?
