Back for a second year, this trip will include a 13 day international travel experience to Beijing and Shanghai, China. Students will be immersed in the local culture through guided tours through cities, on-site visits with local engineering and technology businesses, and unique cultural experiences specific to the region. The group will be accompanied by a local guide familiar with the area as well as Virginia Tech engineering faculty members to maximize students' experiential learning in cultural and engineering contexts.

The approximate cost for this trip would be $4,250 and includes airfare, program fee, lodging, some meals, and all in-country travel; scholarships are available.
