December 6, 2019
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.
Despite the challenge of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Class of 2021 cohort was very successful with 71 out of the 79 graduates (89.8%) planning to enroll in graduate programs. The students are enrolling in various graduate programs throughout the US, the UK, Netherlands, China, Australia, and Singapore. The list of graduate schools is:
May 2021 is a special month for JCI Class of 2021. All students made it to the finish line. Go Bearcats! It is also special because students will receive congratulations virtually and remotely. All the faculty and staff wish you a bright future and stay healthy and safe wherever you go.
