With help from polytechnic peers, a group of Cal Poly students had the opportunity to simulate an international engineering team while establishing memorable bonds during a one-of-a-kind study abroad program in China.
Jianbiao John Pan, an Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering professor and faculty leader, led the group of 15 students on a trip to Hangzhou this summer as part of the Engineering in China program, which is designed specifically for engineering students.
“We have many study abroad programs at Cal Poly, however, there are very few for our engineers,” Pan said. “A majority are for general education, language or related programs. I feel that our engineering students need to be exposed to international culture as well as have an international team experience in a multicultural environment.”
