This program is designed to allow students entering the JI undergraduate program to earn two Bachelor of Science (BS) degrees from two different institutions in two different academic areas. It offers JI students a high-quality international educational experience and an opportunity to engage in international engineering efforts in cooperation between China and the United States. Students apply in their sophomore year to one of the 19 programs offered by the University of Michigan, including 17 programs in the College of Engineering and 2 programs in the College of Literature, Science and the Arts. Students spend time at both UM and SJTU taking the necessary courses required for both degrees. After completing each university’s requirements, students will receive a BS Degree from UM, a BS Degree from SJTU, a Graduation Diploma from the Ministry of Education of China, and a JI Study Certificate jointly granted by SJTU and UM.
