In 2005, a joint undergraduate educational program, the SIT-CMU Joint Program, was established on the campus of Shanghai Institute of Technology (SIT) in China. It serves as a feeder program for the Central Michigan University (CMU) in the U.S. Participating students of this joint educational program are encouraged to continue their studies at CMU. They can transfer to CMU to complete a bachelor’s degree program if they have successfully completed the first two years of coursework at the program site. This paper discusses the curriculum, faculty recruitment, program management, transfer options, and the commitment required from both schools for this joint program.
