2018 SJTU & UCAS Joint Summer Research Internship Program
The SJTU & UCAS Joint Summer Research Internship Program provides excellent opportunities for top undergraduate students to experience academic and cultural immersion in two international universities over the summer. A wide range of research projects in various disciplines are provided, and students can not only study at world-class research laboratories, side-by-side with prominent research professors but also be prepared for further study through intensive research experiences with faculty mentors and enrichment activities.
In addition, participants will develop their research skills by attending lectures on topics such as “How to Write a Research Essay,” “How to Cooperate in a Project,” and more. Students will also learn about China and Chinese culture, enhancing their intercultural awareness and communication.
Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) and University of Chinese Academy of Sciences (UCAS) welcome undergraduate students from all over the world this summer to study in Shanghai and Beijing, the top two cities in China.
Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) enjoys a long history and a world-renowned reputation. Through unrelenting effort over the past 120 years, SJTU has become a comprehensive, research-oriented, and top international university in China.
