GO China: STEM Futures

Explore China’s capital and take your studies in a new direction with an exciting summer programme for engineering students hosted at the Beijing Institute of Technology.

Coronavirus update:

We are provisionally planning to run this programme in summer 2021. A final decision about whether to run this programme will be made in February 2021. However, all students need to be aware that programme cancellations due to sudden COVID-19 travel restrictions and safety considerations may still be possible in Spring 2021 as the health and safety students and staff is a key priority for the University. All updates will be posted on these webpages.

From the programme I gained many close and hopefully long-lasting friendships; knowledge of vehicles and the possible futures of vehicle engineering; some basic Chinese speaking skills; and an understanding of life in Beijing and of Chinese culture and history as a whole.
