Hear Ohio State alumnus Professor A.J. Wang speak about engineering opportunities in Chinese industries and universities.

China, one of the world’s fastest growing economies, is a country setting high goals, moving quickly in areas of science and technology, and willing to invest in engineering talent and education. The College of Engineering is actively partnering with Chinese universities and U.S. industries in China to open doors for our students -- not just to study abroad but to work abroad through internships and job openings. For those who are adventurous, there are great opportunities.

About Professor Wang: After earning his PhD in mechanical engineering at Ohio State, Prof. Wang worked as a scientist for NASA before embarking on a nearly 30 year career with GE Aviation. He is now Chair of the Mechanical Engineering Department and Chief Scientist with the Turbofan Technology and Engineering Institute at Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU), one of China’s leading engineering universities.

Professor Wang is also a member of the college’s Engineering Advisory Council in Shanghai, which was recently formed to assist faculty and students build partnerships in China and to mentor visitors from the college.
