Four senior students of Shanghai University of Engineering Science will join research labs at the University of Windsor this summer as a result of an internship agreement concluded between the two institutions last week.
“This is a good way to develop a relationship,” says Merhdad Saif, UWindsor dean of engineering. “They get to know the range of activities we are engaged in, and students are always the best way to promote our programs.”
The internship is to run at the Faculty of Engineering from July 15 to the end of August. The agreement follows up on a memorandum of understanding the two universities signed in 2012.
A delegation visiting Windsor on Friday included Shanghai University of Engineering Science’s president Jianguo Xia, director of the International Office Huimin Qian, dean of the School of Automotive Engineering Yansong Wang, director of student affairs Yang Xu, and professor of fundamental studies Qin Wang.
Besides a tour of campus facilities, the visit included discussions with UWindsor officials regarding joint research and academic exchanges.
