The UM-SJTU Joint Institute (JI) was founded in 2006, following a strategic partnership between the University of Michigan (UM) and Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU). Both partner universities are committed to developing JI into a world-class institute for engineering education. The Chinese government also recognizes JI as an exemplar of Sino-American collaboration in higher education. In 2014, JI received the prestigious Andrew Heiskell Award for “Innovation in International Education” from the Institute of International Education (IIE). JI currently offers undergraduate and graduate degree programs in Mechanical Engineering (ME), Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE), and Material Science & Engineering (MSE), all in keeping with UM curriculum objectives. The ME and the ECE programs are ABET accredited. All course instruction is in English.
Technical Communication courses strengthen students’ ability to articulate engineering projects by teaching the basics of written, oral, and visual communication. Topics include but are not limited to technical reports, proposals, presentation skills, scientific posters, professional correspondence, and employment communication. Students should demonstrate an ability to communicate effectively to a wide range of audiences, to organize and present content based on specific audience needs
JI operates on a three-semester schedule. The successful candidate is expected to teach 6 courses a year, 3-4 credits each course. Teaching responsibilities would include various levels of Technical Communication and potentially other related courses (e.g., professional development, business, entrepreneurship, etc.).
