The ZJU-UIUC Institute is building interdisciplinary Innovation teams of graduate students. The Institute enrolls both M.S. and Ph.D. candidates and continues to grow its research mission. 

Institute graduate programs combine toptier research and innovation from UIUC with counterparts from ZJU. The ZJU-UIUC Institute aims to foster fundamental science-based solutions, comprehensive innovation, and world-class research

practices as it carries out its objectives for global vision and leadership in engineering and science.

The ZJU-UIUC Institute recruits world-class scholars as faculty, research leaders, and project investigators. The Institute explores long-term challenges to solve the problems of tomorrow. During graduate study, students have the opportunity

to work and collaborate at both universities and serve as leaders on the International Campus. Each students has joint supervisors from China and from the U.S.
