Through the program, students are bestowed with both a bachelor of science in computing science from SFU and a bachelor of engineering from Zhejiang University (ZJU) in China. The program also offers studies at the masters and doctoral level.
Students who participate in the program study for two years at SFU and two years at ZJU, in the city of Hangzhou, south of Shanghai in the eastern coastal province of Zhejiang, China. It’s a unique experience that exposes students from both countries to the best that the other has to offer.
The program fosters top talent, with many students in this year’s graduating class receiving honours with distinction, including four who achieved first-class honours in recognition of their grade-point averages above 4.0 out of 4.33.
For Na, who is Canadian, the program was an exciting opportunity to learn from and work with inspiring minds from different regions around the globe.
“The experience gave me more confidence and the ability to adapt because I was required to learn new things on a daily basis,” he says.
