A message from Professor Chung K. Law
"Our program not only will teach you the most advanced knowledge in the area of clean energy, but will in addition instill in you the unique elements of education that define the best universities in the world."
•Fundamental courses and core courses are all delivered in English.
•Multidimensional Academic Exchange Platform: ACE students will join the student exchange program at Princeton University for one semester, and the credits will be accepted by both universities. There are also summer training programs for further study in other prestigious universities overseas.
•Internationally recognized faculty: Core courses are delivered by the world-renowned professors for the whole semester.
•Students are paired up with excellent mentors to guide their undergraduate studies and future careers.
Mission and Goals
Tsinghua University emphasizes internationalized education and outstanding research. The pedagogical system and the curriculum design of the “ACE” program are derived from the successful experiences of engineering programs in world-class universities like Princeton, UC-Berkeley, MIT, and Caltech. We aim at cultivating academic talents and professionals with broad foundation of knowledge, innovative thinking, and international vision. We emphasize the value of practice and development of individual’s integrity and aspiration to serve to the greater fields in combustion and energy in the country. Our students will not only have solid foundation of science and technology, they will also possess skills for leadership and critical thinking.
The ACE Program has created a dynamic academic environment for students, and set up a model for cultivating innovative talents in accordance with their aptitude and developed an extensive international teaching program. Our program welcomes aspiring students who are willing to devote themselves in the field of energy and power technology.
