2017 Zhi-Hong International Summer School of Advanced Materials (ISS-AM)

-Advanced Functional Materials-

 
 
1. Overview and Purpose
 
Purpose
  The “Zhi-Hong” International Summer School of Advanced Materials (ISS-AM) is organized by School of Materials Science and Engineering (SMSE) at Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU), aiming at promoting the interactive cultural and academic exchange between top-level scholars and students from all over the world. The ISS-AM is named as “Zhi-Hong” not only to commemorate the school founder Professor Zhihong Zhou, but also to inspire the summer school participants since “Zhi-Hong” in Chinese means “being ambitious”.
 “Zhi-Hong” ISS-AM is a two-week program with one theme. The theme in 2017 is “Advanced Functional Materials”.
  In 2016, the 1st“Zhi-Hong” ISS-AM with the theme of “Advanced Metallic Materials” was organized successfully. 19 international students who came from University of Oxford, University of Padova, University of Novi Sad and Alexandria University, and 23 Chinese students attended this program. 11 top-level experts from Northwest University, The Ohio State University, National Institute for Material Science in Japan and other foreign institutes were invited to give academic lectures. The summer school also offered various activities, e.g., field trips, student seminars, culture festival, and culture tour.
 
 
Introduction to SMSE
  SJTU pioneered in setting up the discipline of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) in China, based on the program of heat treatment of metals which was established in 1952. Nowadays, the MSE program in SJTU has been consistently ranked among the national top five, being No.1 in 2003, as evaluated by the Minister of Education. In 2007, the MSE program of SJTU was authorized as the State Key Academic Program at Primary Discipline Level. MSE program of SJTU was ranked 31 in 2016 QS world university ranking and has been listed in the world top 0.1% discipline of ESI for years.
 
What to expect
  The “Zhi-Hong” ISS-AM will offer lectures and professional practice of all areas of advanced functional materials and organize student seminars, visits to research laboratories, culture festival and culture tours in Shanghai. The “Zhi-Hong” ISS-AM is also a platform provided for undergraduate and graduate students from all-over the world to interact and build friendship.
A “Zhi-Hong” ISS-AM Certificate of Accomplishment will be issued to the participant.
