Interesting case. External links and university seal support "Beihang" but the formal name seems to still be "Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics" and the acronym "BUAA" is frequently used. A similar case as Virginia Tech in the USA ("...The school authorized the official use of Virginia Tech as equivalent to the full VPI&SU name. Many school documents today use the shorter name, though diplomas and transcripts still spell out the formal name."). — AjaxSmack 02:14, 15 April 2009 (UTC)
You're correct that acronym "BUAA" is still in use. -✉ Hello World! 14:58, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

This is all and wholly an advertisements article. Instead of the suggestion to make some other university page an 'example', which suggestion could detract people possessing the required knowledge from taking any action about improving the situation, I'd like to ask some questions:
- how teaching is organised, i.e. what people do while they are considered student, what they are supposed to do in order to be considered having acquired knowledge and skills, what facilities can or do they use for gaining knowledge and experimentation, who supervises their education and in what ways, what kinds of tests do they meet, how they exchange ideas, what practice they get and where, etc. Please save us from numbers here, they are not going to explain anything ("sixty five master programs" — is this much or little? what does the word "master" mean in practical terms?).
- what impact does the university have on the society? What do its graduate do in China or abroad? In what industries do they work, how successfully, etc? How many of them continue working in the university after graduation? Here figures would be most welcome, I think.
- what exactly was wrong with the university before the "revitalisation"? What problems were eliminated, in what ways and to what degrees, what problems remained?
- what are considered its strengths comparing to other universities (especially in China), and what are its drawbacks? Please, something objective: comparative assessments of quality of research, structural strength and weaknesses that make it more easy to conduct one activity but less easy to conduct another, comparative studies of students' research or work involvement, etc.
- many other questions as well, just these ones were such that puzzled me as I was reading.
- the big problem is language. It's not the point of the article to tell how splendid everything is (besides, people never believe that everything is splendid), the point is to describe how everything is organised. So, laudatory words are out of place here, they have little capability of describing the structures. We're not here to learn how "tireless" the professors are, but in what ways do they work.
Sorry for my tone, I'm not good at English speaking, so I talk like I can. Best editing! - 220.127.116.11 (talk) 05:37, 5 November 2013 (UTC)
