The Technology and Engineering Study Tour in China (TECS) held a reception for Stanford, Peking University, and Tsinghua University engineering students at SCPKU on September 8.  Developed by the Stanford School of Engineering and the Bing Overseas Studies Program (BOSP) in 2013, TECS is a program that gives Stanford engineering students – both undergraduates and graduate students - a window to understand technology and engineering businesses in China.  This year, 21 students participated along with one faculty lead and one Ph.D. student lead.  Between late August and mid-September, the team paid visits to 14 Chinese companies spread across industries including automotive, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, design, hardware, and software/IT.   The SCPKU reception gave Stanford students the chance to interact with their counterparts from Peking University and Tsinghua University and discuss a wide range of issues including student life and entrepreneurship.
