MIT in China: Summer 2016

Students and faculty from SA+P, MISTI teaching, working, and learning across Greater China

This summer, MIT professors, students, and staff are traveling across China to teach, learn from, and work with Chinese counterparts on a variety of projects. Numerous teams are associated with the MIT School of Architecture and Planning (SA+P) and the MIT International Science and Technology Initiative (MISTI).

To highlight their efforts, SA+P and MISTI have partnered to create an online map showcasing our many teams and projects taking place throughout China—and there is a lot to share this summer. From education to innovation, MIT individuals and teams are tackling urgent challenges and working with Chinese colleagues to make a better world.
