There is a Chinese studies ecosystem at MIT that combines student coursework on China and the Chinese language with hands-on applications in industry, research, and educational technology across Greater China.

Each year through the MIT-China Program undergraduate and graduate students intern in companies and universities in mainland China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. See MIT-China 2018 program newsletter for details.

MIT-China initiatives such as the MIT Greater China Fund for Innovation, the MIT-China Educational Technology Initiative (CETI), and the MIT-China Forum contribute to this ecosystem by further encouraging students, faculty and the Boston-area business and academic communities to participate in a wide range of MIT-China activities. 

MISTI-China Fung Foundation funding for up to 15 MIT undergraduate students to do research internships at universities in Hong Kong, China, or Taiwan. (see newsletters below for examples)   

The MIT Entrepreneurship and Maker Skills Integrator (MEMSI) held January 5-19, 2019.  Approx. 15 students from MIT and 15 students from universities in Hong Kong will be chosen to join us in Hong Kong and Shenzhen for two weeks of intense learning on entrepreneurship and on maker skills.
