UC President Neville Pinto visits Chongqing University
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.
We congratulate the class of 2019 and are proud to announce that 87% of the graduates will continue their education pursuing graduate studies in schools in the U.S. and around the world!
On June 22, 2019, the second cohort of Joint Co-op Institute (JCI) students gathered in Chongqing University where they spent the first four years studying and growing and celebrated one of their life milestones: they are now official graduates of Chongqing University Class of 2019! During the reception, students were invited to leave their names on a signing board and they each received a bag of surprises from their faculty and staff, even parents: best wishes letters from Dean Zhiqing Zhang and parents, and a special ink and badge with each student’s name. University of Cincinnati College of Engineering and Applied Science Interim Dean Paul Orkwis, JCI Interim Director Thomas Huston, distinguished guests from University of Cincinnati and Chongqing University were proud to see this milestone.
