Students and faculty have their passports ready to explore global educational experiences with a growing number of institutions.
Rose-Hulman signed agreements this fall with China’s leading Hubei University of Automotive Technology and Beihang University. Advanced Transportation System Faculty Advisers Zac Chambers and Marc Herniter will teach a modelbased systems design class this summer at Shanghai University.
Elsewhere in China, Emeritus Trustee Michael D. Thomas is visiting the country this spring to assist Rose-Hulman in establishing future relationships, including a possible research consortia with universities and students.
“Rose-Hulman is getting global attention in China,” says Luchen Li, PhD, associate dean for global programs. “We’re bringing the world to Rose-Hulman and Rose-Hulman to the world.”
International campus enrollment is at an alltime high, with degree-seeking and exchange students from more than 20 countries. More Rose-Hulman students studied abroad in more countries in 2012. Also, new courses in international team management and global leadership are being offered to students.
“Rose-Hulman is making every effort to integrate global learning and international experiences into the curriculum and student learning,” Li says.
