Economic globalization has driven a world-wide interest in research and higher education, particularly in the area of advanced technology. It is urgent for every university in the world to create innovative pathways to educate and train “international” scientists and engineers, which is the objective of this dual-degree program . This program allows participating graduate students to experience international interactions in research education, and culture. economic development.
A dual-degree program in graduate education between different countries with a group of faculty who share mutual and focused interest can be the catalyst for generating a model for a sustainable international engagement The creation of Dual-Degree in advanced materials physics will create a sustainable platform for training the future globally engaged science and technology workforce that will face the new challenges accompanying a worldwide technology-driven society. Dual-degree students will exploit the complementary research expertise and facilities from both the U.S. and China and take full advantage of national facilities in both countries.
