MIT in China: Summer 2017

This summer, MIT professors, students, and staff are traveling across Greater 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). Founded in 1983 by faculty of the MIT School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences (SHASS) and based in the SHASS Center for International Studies, MISTI gives students the tools to make a difference in the world by matching them with tailored, hands-on projects across the globe. 

To highlight their efforts, SA+P and MISTI have partnered to create an online map showcasing our many teams and projects taking place throughout Greater 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.
