In addition to program cooperation with University of Cambridge, University of California Irvine, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, and British Columbia University, BISTU for the first time develops four programs with University of Cardiff, Boston University, Technische Universität Berlin, and Freie Universität Berlin to produce more learning opportunities for students to embark on their trip of engineering, entrepreneurship, innovation and culture.
Featured for exploration, discovery and applied learning, the trip of engineering finds its destination in Cardiff University, a world top 100 institution with school of engineering tops its peers in Britain. Ten students from School of Information and Communication Engineering attend this two-week trip of Engineering. Students are informed and taught the knowledge in the area of mobile communication, microwave sensor, interdisciplinary applications, and challenges for future communication system.

Summer programs and trips to other countries, universities, and enterprises have offered fresh understanding of the world, culture, and new knowledge. It is an effective way to broaden horizon and feel different cultures. Says students who have attended the programs.
Short term exchange and communication programs are one of the many tries that BISTU is doing for education globalization, says BISTU International Cooperation Department.
