CETA Establishes Joint '4+1' Master's Program with Shanghai Normal University

The University of Hartford has established a joint Master of Engineering program with Shanghai Normal University (SHNU) in Shanghai, China, which will allow students from SHNU to complete their degree requirements at both schools.

The program represents a partnership between the College of Information, Mechanical and Electrical Engineering (CIMEE) at Shanghai Normal University and the College of Engineering, Technology, and Architecture (CETA) at the University of Hartford.

After completing their undergraduate curricula, CIMEE students will take their first 12 graduate credits at their home university in Shanghai, and then take the final 18 credits at CETA, including three-to-nine credits of thesis project work.

Once participating students have met the degree requirements, they will earn a Master of Engineering degree from the University of Hartford. They may earn a Master of Engineering in electrical engineering or a Master of Engineering in mechanical engineering.

The first group of students from Shanghai is expected to begin studying at the University of Hartford in fall 2012 or spring 2013.

The program is known as a "4+1" program because participating students can take some graduate courses during their final two semesters of undergraduate study and then have one more year to complete the remaining credits for their graduate program, thus earning two degrees in five years.

The partnership agreement with Shanghai Normal University was signed by University of Hartford Provost Sharon L. Vasquez in February, during a visit by a four-member delegation from SHNU.

The joint Master of Engineering program is a concrete development resulting from a China trip in October 2011 by CETA Dean Lou Manzione and CETA Associate Professor Clara Fang.
