The Engineering, Business and Culture of the Environment in the East in Beijing, Tianjin and Harbin

Maymester 2014 - Cancelled

This is an exciting interdisciplinary course to introduce students to: 1) modern Chinese science and engineering practice; 2) how to do business in China related to these disciplines and 3) cultural and language survival skills while in China. The cultural and language part of the course consists of cultural tours, cross cultural training and survival Chinese language skills. An introduction to Chinese business compares Chinese and American business practices. The science and engineering module focuses on the environmental and sustainable energy industries in China.

Tianjin University

Our hosts will be students, staff and friends of Tianjin University (TJU). TJU is a pioneer of modern higher education and the first university in China, proudly holding up and practicing their motto: “Seeking Truth from Facts.” TJU has been a National Key University since 1959 when the first 16 universities were so designated by the government and is a world recognized research university with a distinctive northern quality and strength in education, research and social service.

During the two weeks in China students will actively interact with their Chinese counterparts in business and engineering and other majors in formal and informal classroom activities, including recitations and discussion. Learning survival Chinese language skills will be facilitated by a native speaker of Mandarin Chinese. This will be a wonderful education experience in intensive, practical and creative learning.​
