There is a Chinese studies ecosystem at MIT that integrates student coursework on China and the Chinese language with hands-on applications in industry, research, and educational technology across China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan.

MIT-China initiatives such as the MIT Greater China Fund for Innovation, the MIT-China Educational Technology Initiative (CETI), and the MIT-China Forum are aligned to feed into this ecosystem by further encouraging students, faculty and the Boston-area business and academic communities to participate in a wide range of MIT-China activities. 

NEW!!  Now accepting applications for the Summer 2016 STL-MISTI China Socially Responsible Real Estate Entrepreneurship & Urbanization Exchange Initiative, which will send 2 teams of MISTI students to 6 Chinese universities for 6 weeks of activities on these and other current topics. Contact Sean Gilbert for further details and then apply

Since 1996, the MIT China Educational Technology Initiative (CETI) has worked with students and faculty in China on science and engineering course content through online platforms such as OpenCourseWare, iLabs (Internet labs), and D-Lab(development labs).  These full summer workshops or “camps” now extend to 15 universities and high schools spanning Xining, Chengdu, Kunming, Yulin, Wuhan, Dalian, Fuzhou, Hangzhou, Guangzhou, Hong Kong, and Taiwan.

New!!  Now accepting applications for the Summer 2016 STL-MISTI China Socially Responsible Real Estate Entrepreneurship and Urbanization Exchange Initiative, which will send two teams of CETI students to 6 Chinese universities for 6 weeks of activities on these and other current topics. Contact Sean Gilbert for further details. 

Additionally, CETI teams over the years have engaged in entrepreneurial activities:

While company and university research interns conclude their involvement with MISTI programs on the final day of work during the late summer, more than half of CETI students commit to the program for another year of program management activities as “Exec.”  This is an 18 month commitment from the time CETI interns are first accepted into the program in late December, which includes spring preparation meetings, summer internships at Chinese universities and high schools; the management of fall recruitment activities and intern selections, and the preparation of the next group of CETI interns until they depart to China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan in June each year.

The MIT-China Educational Technology Initiative What is CETI?


Each summer since 1996, CETI has sent between 15 and 21 MIT students to high schools and universities in cities and towns across mainland China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. CETIzens have introduced curricula on web design, programming, robotics, electrical engineering, biology, economics, and more.


CETIzens work in teams of 3. Team members work together to come up with a cohesive curriculum, and CETI believes that this teamwork adds an extra dimension to the program, as CETIzens not only teach students but also learn from one another. In addition, teams often travel around China before or after the program.


CETI is unlike other international programs at MIT because it is a student-run organization. Most non-graduating CETIzens return from their trips to China and choose to become part of CETI Exec, gaining valuable skills in project management and logistics.


CETI has evolved throughout its history - reaching out to more universities and high schools and expanding partnerships with other organizations such as MITx and Google App Inventor.

Where do CETI participants go?
Last summer,

in China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong.

Christina Yu Chen

Fellow 2015-2016
The MasterCard Foundation Fellow
Food & Beverage

MBA, Sloan School of Management

Christina’s venture connects talented chefs with China’s growing cohort of young professionals seeking healthy and authentic cuisine. The venture gives migrant and retired women an opportunity to launch their own small businesses through a platform that allows them to advertise their specialties directly to consumers. Entrepreneurs also have the option to open their homes to local diners and foreign travelers seeking a taste of the best of the local cuisine. Christina plans to expand her platform beyond China, empowering many more entrepreneurs and satisfying a growing consumer curiosity for regional dishes.

While traveling in Malaysia, Christina dined with a local family and found that she learned much more about the culture and cuisine than when she ate in restaurants. On a later trip to Cambodia, Christina wanted a similar experience and was inspired to start her venture. From watching her own mother, Christina understands the skills that women acquire after many years of cooking for large families, and wants to design a business model that allows them to share their talents.

Before beginning her MBA studies, Christina spent four years in the New York and Beijing offices of a leading investment bank and was promoted to CFO for the Asia Consumer Retail group. She has a strong business acumen, team and business unit management skills, and appreciates working in a culturally diverse environment. Having grown up in China and having worked in both China and the United States, Christina understands the local culture and business opportunities in growing urban

Tamanna Urmi

Fellow 2015-2016

BS, School of Engineering

Ways2Clean collects, sorts, and streams organic and inorganic waste to make fertilizer and biofuels, among other chemical products, for the Bangladeshi market. Bangladesh’s public utility agencies face many challenges in collecting, sorting, and recycling or disposing of waste in growing urban areas. Through public-private partnerships, Ways2Clean is catalyzing the development of the waste collection and management infrastructure, raising public awareness of the value of recycling, improving working conditions for workers in the industry, and creating healthier communities.

Tamanna was born in the city of Dinajpur in the state of Rajshahi and later moved to Dhaka, the capital of the country. The overburdened waste management infrastructures in both cities made her realize how important it is to create a system that both keeps the cities clean and incentivizes residents, governments, and industry by offering economic incentives.

Tamanna founded Ways2Clean in July 2014 after completing chemistry and system design coursework, as well as completing field-based work with MIT faculty. She gained the practical knowledge for founding and leading Ways2Clean by working with a D-Lab team to design a waste management system in Kuna Yala, Panama.  Tamanna has also traveled to India and Mexico, and learned about waste management practices in both places.

Tamanna is a candidate for a BS in Mechanical Engineering with a concentration in industrial design at the School of Engineering.
