This summer, students from three Chinese universities spent six weeks learning about American transportation and culture as part of a training program offered by the Global Transit Innovations Program (GTI).  http://gti.umn.edu/

Thirty-two students from Southeast University, Nanjing Tech University, and Northwest University participated in the program, which included courses on GIS, transportation planning, English speaking and writing, and cross-cultural communication. The visiting students also attended a variety of transportation-focused seminars both on and off campus, including tours of U of M labs, 3M’s Innovation Center, and the St. Croix River Crossing.

In addition, students participated in cultural activities at locations around the Twin Cities, including Fort Snelling and the Minneapolis Institute of Arts.

The program, first offered in 2016, was developed by CTS, GTI, and the U of M China Center’s   .
