Back for a third year, this international module will include a 13 day experience based in 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.

Tentative Itinerary (Note: modifications will continue to be made)
