INNOVATE 2010: Vietnam & Taiwan
Do you have an interest in visiting Asia in March of 2010? If so, look into INNOVATE, a short-term international experience that brings together engineering, science, and technical students from the US, Japan, Singapore, Vietnam, and Taiwan to explore the issues surrounding innovation, globalization, and technology in Vietnam and Taiwan! INNOVATE will prepare you to become tomorrow’s technical leaders through ten days of hands-on international experience that will include company site visits, meetings with key business, government, academic and policy leaders, and related cultural tours.
Vietnam and Taiwan provide rich case studies on how technology can serve as an economic catalyst. Vietnam has an ambitious goal of becoming a developed economy by 2020, and Ho Chi Minh City is an ideal venue to observe the challenges and opportunities of facing this nation. Taiwan’s pursuit of an open, efficient and internationally competitive economy has contributed greatly to the island’s remarkable economic growth in highly advanced and diversified industries but it faces unique challenges in developing new areas of expertise that will support further development and keep it at the cutting-edge. Join us today for this innovative program that highlights the unique role Asia plays in the global economy & technological innovation!
