NRES Faculty Members Help Host Zheijiang Students for Summer Internship Program
NRES Faculty Members Help Host Zheijiang Students for Summer Internship Program ACES welcomed 23 students from China's Zhejiang University (ZJU) on July 9, 2013, for a six-week research internship program. In its fourth year, the highly successful program for ZJU graduate students includes individualized work with an ACES faculty member to complete a research project, industry-focused field trips, and social and cultural activities. The program, coordinated by the Office of International Programs (OIP) will culminate with a poster session on August 14, 2013. OIP thanks the ACES faculty members who are serving as mentors for the 2013 ZJU summer program: Juan E.

To foster this relationship and strengthen research collaborations, ACES has proudly hosted dozens of ZJU's finest students during the past three summers. As a testament to the support of ACES faculty and the program's organization, in 2012, ZJU named the UIUC-ZJU summer research program as its best study-abroad program. Moreover, this program is serving as an excellent recruiting tool for new graduate students to our ACES programs.
