The University of Illinois boasts collaboration with China’s higher education dating back more than 100 years.  The new joint Zhejiang University/University of Illinois Institute in China takes this to a unique level, bringing an Illinois perspective on teaching and research to densely-populated Zhejiang province.  This presentation describes a brand new campus and new programs that promise big future change in China.  Multidisciplinary work in electric transportation, intelligent infrastructure, atomic-scale materials, and high-performance computing drives new growth opportunities.  The Institute has many ways for Illinois students and faculty to exchange, collaborate, and lead in China.  The talk discusses transitioning growth in high-speed rail systems, massive infrastructure, and advanced technologies.  Fundamental challenges in China are described, including massive congestion, environmental problems, and growing aspirations of the population.  The tasks of translating these challenges into engineering education and research success are discussed.  Joining us for a wide-ranging discussion of these international opportunities are the two deans of the Institute, Philip Krein and Er-Ping Li.
