Diversity and Pacific Southwest Section Meeting Paper Submissions
It has been five years since the first cohort of Chinese students was accepted into the 3+1 dual-degree Bachelor’s program in Electrical Engineering (EE) and Computer Engineering (CE) in 2014. The program was started jointly by Northern Arizona University (NAU) in Flagstaff, USA and Chongqing University of Posts and Telecommunications (CQUPT) in the People’s Republic of China. According to the program blueprint, enrolled students spend their first three years in CQUPT, taking courses that are taught by both CQUPT and NAU faculties. In their fourth year, qualified students transfer to NAU campus in Flagstaff, Arizona. Successful students receive two Bachelor’s degrees: one from NAU in EE or CE and the other from CQUPT in Electronic Information Engineering. As of Spring 2018 30 students from the first cohort who went to NAU in their senior year have successfully graduated, and another 30 students from the second cohort are studying in NAU right now. In this paper, the current state of this joint program is presented, including the student performance in NAU, changes in program management, course setups and faculty assignment, summary of successes and challenges. In addition, the different teaching styles between CQUPT and NAU faculties are compared.
