This program is intended for students and working professionals in China who want an immersive experience in the English Language. It provides students an opportunity to learn English in very small groups, taught by seasoned English Language educators. Beyond that, students also study American culture; they practice presenting their ideas and WRITTEN opinions before an audience of their peers thereby building their confidence and presentation skills.

The world is changing. In the recent past, teaching online was viewed as a specialty, even a luxury. Today it is a necessity. However, most teachers have had no formal training or practice in online teaching and are expected to teach students who depend on them for guidance. This can make for a very stressful experience for teachers, and a less-than-satisfactory, even chaotic, experience for students. The Online Teacher Preparation Practicum (OTPP) fills that gap. It is designed to RAPIDLY train and equip teachers to become effective online instructors irrespective of subject area or degree of computer proficiency.

The 6-month Six Sigma and Productivity Management Program (SSP) provides students with the practical training needed to become qualified, proficient quality improvement practitioners. Students initially are prepared to gain their Yellow Belt certification before proceeding through to the training that support their eventual Green Belt certification.

This program is designed to accomplish four things:

  • Teach students the fundamentals of instrumentation, data acquisition, instrument controls and automation across a wide variety of sectors and industries to support scientific, industrial, technological  and commercial applications.
  • Teach students the hardware and software applications that support many commercial offerings in the market today.
  • Provide students the tools to objectively evaluate their instrumentation and data acquisition needs with a view to developing in-house solutions to meet those needs.
  • Give students the practical skills—and tactile experience—of developing and programming robust and industrial-grade data acquisition, control and instrumentation algorithms using commonly available software.

The course will be based on the use of (the ubiquitous) Microsoft EXCEL® as the primary platform for data acquisition and control instead of the highly proprietary and expensive software platforms offered by many commercial vendors.

The Aquaculture Enterprise Development program offers two training courses. The 6-month Certificate in Aquaculture Operations trains people to become proficient in the technical aspects of aquaculture operation. This is in contrast to the 3-month Certificate in Aquaculture Entrepreneurship which provides graduates the means to start and operate aquaculture enterprises.

This 6-month program is designed to support students to develop thriving export enterprises. The program supports students to accomplish three things: (a) Explore and understand foreign markets with a focus on the preferences of foreign consumers and the expectations of foreign buyers.  (b) Learn how to develop and improve products to meet those expectations. (c) Package, ship and ACTUALLY sell those products in the indicated foreign markets for a profit. The program is designed to assist students practically through the entire process on the way to earning a Certificate in Export Development.
