“The college hopes that the program could promote international exchange in both engineering and non-engineering education. The program is designed to provide students with a study-abroad experience by allowing them to take 1-2 full length courses for about 3 weeks in July and getting university credits, ” said he.
In the nearly one-month program, the students could take 1-2 regular courses out of 13 available courses taught by renown international teachers, as well as taking part in supplementary external activities and courses, such as tours, field trips, company visits, internships and speaker sessions.
This year’s partner institutions include University of Texas Austin (USA), University of Maryland (USA), University of Melbourne (Australia), Mines ParisTech (France), King’s College London (UK), University of British Columbia(Canada) and Chulalongkorn University (Thailand).
