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

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