Joint Co-op Institute
The University of Cincinnati College of Engineering and Applied Science teams with Chongqing University (CQU) to offer the first mandatory cooperative engineering education program in China, named the Joint Engineering Co-op Institute (JCI).
This alliance brings together two renowned universities, both leaders in their respective countries. Students enrolled in JCI receive the best of both worlds: a top-notch engineering education with degrees from each institution plus industry experience. These two assets combine to make JCI students high-demand graduates.
For UC students, JCI provides opportunities to study and work abroad in China as part of their experiential learning education. It also serves as a launching pad for faculty to further develop their research through increased cooperation between UC and CQU.
