UDM partners with Beijing University of Chemical Technology

BeijingProvost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Pamela Zarkowski and Dean of the College of Liberal Arts & Education Mark Denham visited the Beijing University of Chemical Technology (BUCT) in Beijing, China in January. In looking to solidify and develop the mutually beneficial relationship with BUCT, Zarkowski and Denham met with BUCT Vice President Dongsheng Chen as well as approximately 70 students, who have enrolled in the BUCT Robotics program to complete their degree at UDM in Fall 2017.

This agreement will likely include students in the Computer & Information Systems and Mechanical Engineering programs in the future. Zarkowski also signed an agreement to explore the idea of expanding our cooperative program to law students as well.
