Program Description:

ShanghaiShanghai, China


With 18.7 million inhabitants, Shanghai is the largest city by population in the world. It’s also the commercial and financial center of China and the largest base of Chinese industrial technology.

Modern Shanghai has three areas of interest to those who visit: sightseeing, business, and shopping. The city is home to several historical landmarks and attractions, many centered around the People's Square or Huangpu River. Shanghai is also a mecca of fashion, art, cinema, museums, and sports, and offers a reprieve from the urban pace in extensive green areas and parks.


Projects are completed in collaboration with the School of Environmental Science and Engineering, at Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU), one of the oldest and most prestigious universities in China.
