The University of Michigan-Shanghai Jiao Tong University Joint Institute (UM-SJTU JI) is a premium engineering institute located in Shanghai, China. The UM-SJTU Joint Institute offers a highly international education experience with its core curriculum from UM. All courses are delivered in English by world-class faculty members recruited primarily from leading universities in the United States. Students not only learn science and engineering knowledge but also gain soft skills, such as creativity, teamwork, communication, and leadership. Over the past decade, JI has grown to be a highly regarded institute with significant academic impact and international reputation. It has won many awards from home and abroad. It is the first Chinese institution to win the prestigious Andrew Heiskell Award for Innovation in Higher Education from the Institute for International Education (IIE) in New York.
