The University of Michigan-Shanghai Jiao Tong University Joint Institute (UM-SJTU JI, JI hereafter) undergraduate student Jin Ping Lim has won the 2022 SJTU Excellent International Graduate award, according to a recent announcement of SJTU International Student Service Center.

Jin Ping Lim from Malaysia is expected to graduate from JI with a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering in August. He is one of the 10 winners selected from all international undergraduate students on SJTU campuses who are expected to graduate this year.

“During my study at JI on the Minhang campus of SJTU, I have been trying to challenge myself by choosing the more difficult courses so that I could learn more and improve myself more quickly. Although my campus life was greatly affected by the pandemic, I really enjoy being a surfer against the wind at JI and have managed to adapt to the changes of life,” said Lim.
