Hangzhou Dianzi University School of Management
This project aimed to foster international collaboration, a rising standard for higher education in our increasingly global society, through sharing Worcester Polytechnic Institute’s well established project-based curriculum with Hangzhou Dianzi University in Hangzhou, China. Interviews, surveys, and focus groups determined that it is mutually beneficial and possible for WPI and HDU students to jointly conduct sponsored, interdisciplinary research projects concerning the relationship between technology and society. The project produced recommendations to implement collaborative research in the Fall of 2015, allowing students from WPI and HDU to fully experience the long-term benefits of cross-cultural, project-based, and interdisciplinary learning.
