Gordon-MIT Engineering Leadership Program hosting educational exchange program with Shantou University delegation during IAP

Members of the visiting delegation from Shantou University arrive in MIT's Lobby 7 en route to their first day of a three-week educational exchange hosted by the Bernard M. Gordon-MIT Engineering Leadership Program.

In the first of several educational exchanges between the Bernard M. Gordon-MIT Engineering Leadership Program and Shantou University in Shantou, the Gordon-MIT ELP is hosting 27 Shantou University students and faculty during IAP. During their visit, the Shantou delegation will participate in workshops and courses pertaining to engineering leadership.


From Jan. 9 to 27, 27 students and faculty from Shantou University in Shantou are visiting MIT for an educational exchange hosted by the Bernard M. Gordon-MIT Engineering Leadership Program. The visit is part of a growing academic relationship between Shantou University and the Gordon-MIT ELP.
During their visit, the Shantou delegation is participating in several workshops and courses sponsored by the Worldwide CDIO Initiative, UPOP (the Undergraduate Practice Opportunities Program) and the Gordon-MIT ELP. The workshops and courses include:

  • “Delivering Engineering Success” (ESD.054): This intensive weeklong short subject is taught by Professor Edward Crawley and features remarks by engineering leaders including MIT Institute Professor Sheila Widnall, Martin Schlecht, and others.
  • “CDIO Introductory Workshop”: Overview of the goals and objectives of the Worldwide CDIO (Conceive-Design-Implement-Operate) Initiative.
  • “UPOP Training Modules”: Exposure to training MIT students receive during UPOP’s intensive weeklong IAP seminars.

“This is a great opportunity for MIT students to share and compare their engineering leadership training and education with their Chinese peers,” says Crawley, director of the Gordon-MIT ELP.

Housed in MIT’s School of Engineering, the Gordon-MIT Engineering Leadership Program provides a transformative national model for the development of next-generation technical leaders (not necessarily entrepreneurs) who are equipped to understand and address significant engineering problems in real-world situations.
