important feature of the Westlake undergraduate program is a required
study abroad experience for up to one year. Students will gain a deeper global
perspective by studying at one of our partner universities outside of
China. To date, Westlake has signed study abroad and exchange
agreements with approximately 20 top universities in the United
States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Europe, Australia, and Asia; more
partner institutions will be available in the future.
globally recruited Westlake faculty are all internationally
recognized leaders in their fields, known for setting the agenda in
their specialty, pioneering new areas, or being rising young scholars with
promising academic futures. All faculty have held faculty positions
at, or hold doctorates from, globally leading universities including
Princeton, Yale, Harvard, MIT, Stanford, UC Berkeley, CMU, KTH, and
others. At Westlake University, students study and work side by side
with these brilliant scientists and engineers, receiving inspiration
and charting an exciting future for the world.
Westlake undergraduates will reside and study at our new, modern, Yungu Campus, and join one of four distinct residential colleges connecting students from various cultural backgrounds and academic disciplines. Westlake Residential Colleges serve to develop students’ identity inside our intimate, supportive, and diverse community.
