Program Benefits

  • Offers a unique opportunity for United States and Chinese students to learn and work in a global economy and in global health settings.
  • Graduates will become leaders of innovation who can contribute to cultural, political, economic, and health concerns around the world.


How it Works

  • Students apply through one of the two campuses, Georgia Tech or Peking University.
  • An advisor matching process will take place.
  • Most classes and research will take place on the student's "home" campus.
  • Students will spend at least one year on the secondary campus.

 

Most of the classes and research will take place on the home campus. However, students will also spend at least one year taking classes and participating in research in their co-advisor’s lab on the secondary campus. A single dissertation will satisfy the thesis requirements of all three institutions. Students will be fully supported as long as they maintain satisfactory progress in the program.
