SJTU is one of China’s most illustrious research universities. The Summer Research Internship Program attracts students from all over the world to learn in state-of-the-art facilities from prominent research professors. As a participant you’ll be introduced to many fields of research: mechanical and electrical engineering, civil engineering, materials engineering, environmental sciences, agriculture, biotechnology, biomedical engineering, and pharmacy.
Be prepared for hands-on experimentation that encourages you to problem-solve. Lectures and seminars will clarify each field’s key motivations and questions, which will drive your research projects. Throughout this internship you’ll access a wide range of technologies, from CAD and 3D design software to laboratory models and equipment. Your assignments will also vary: you may conduct experiments and present the findings, design a solution to a problem, or work with a group. Soft skills are part of the program as students develop their collaborative and science communication skills. And of course, along with your projects you’ll enjoy taking in Chinese culture and language. You’re encouraged to explore the amazing sights of Shanghai with your fellow students!
The goal of the SJTU summer program is to train students in the scientific process of collecting data, analysing results, and ultimately thinking like an innovator. You’ll also benefit from the chance build your network of peers and collaborators. Most importantly, a summer spent exploring many fields of research will give you insight for directing your future academic path.
