China Comes to Tech: 1877-1930
Maihaugan Gallery exhibit examines Chinese students at MIT
Opens Friday, February 10th, 9:30am-11:00am
Maihaugen Gallery | Building 14N-130, MIT Campus, Cambridge 

In 1877, the first student from China matriculated at MIT. By 1910, China was sending more students to MIT than any other foreign country. From these beginnings, the Institute became one of the most popular overseas destinations for Chinese students, many seeking to contribute to their country’s modernization through engineering, science, and commerce. These students left a legacy of strong ties between China and “Tech” that profoundly influenced the course of globalization.

Organized for the Maihaugen Gallery by Emma J. Teng, T.T. and Wei Fong Chao Professor of Asian Civilizations at MIT, China Comes to Tech: 1877-1930 commemorates 140 years of Chinese students at the Institute. Open through November 2017.
