Chinese students study Twin Cities transportation

Visiting students learn about transportation in the Twin Cities
Posted on September 1, 2016

This summer, CTS hosted 24 students from two Chinese universities—Southeast University and Nanjing Tech University—for a six-week summer training program as part of the Global Transit Innovations Program (GTI).

Visiting students took U of M courses on GIS and planning with Humphrey School and U-Spatial faculty. They also attended a variety of transportation-focused seminars and tours around the Twin Cities. The program’s itinerary included visiting U of M labs, trying out Nice Ride, taking a boat tour of the St. Croix River Crossing construction site, and touring Metro Transit and the 3M Innovation Center.

In addition, students participated in cultural activities and explored a variety of Minnesota destinations, including the Mall of America and Lake Superior.

The program was developed by CTS, GTI, and the U of M China Center’s Mingda Institute.
