JRI Summer Research Program in China

This twelve-week program is designed for UCLA students to participate in advanced research in science or engineering while gaining valuable international experience during the summer period. The first two weeks will consist of language and cultural learning experiences at Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU). Students then travel to Peking University (PKU) where each participant joins a research lab full-time with PKU faculty and graduate student mentors to work on a jointly designed project. Throughout the week students take Chinese language and cultural classes. On weekends and evenings, students also have the opportunity to go sightseeing in and around Beijing.
