A new leading institute joins EPITA’s network
A major centre for research and innovation in the field of the Internet of things, Jiangnan University has joined the ranks of EPITA’s prestigious international partners. Based in Wuxi in Jiangsu province (1.5 hrs away from Shanghai), Jiangnan University is one of the Chinese higher education institutes taking part in Project 211 (which federates China’s strategic higher education universities and institutes to increase the profile of research and innovation in the country).
In the framework of this new partnership, EPITA will welcome students from Jiangnan on its campus as early as this summer, as part of special summer schools. An exchange program for students will be set up as of fall 2014. And in the near future, both schools will be able to deliver a joint double degree.
