The program will enroll a cohort comprised of Chinese and Canadian students. ZU DDP students are mainly selected from CCST and Chu Kochen Honors College, Zhejiang University. The length of study of this undergraduate degree program is 4-year and students will be familiar with language, society and culture in both countries by the end.
This cohort-based program is admitting about 40 Computing Science students annually from Simon Fraser University and Zhejiang University respectively.
Until June 2013, there are respectively 185 students from China and 37 students from Canada enrolled in the"2+2" Dual Degree Program. 96 students from both China and Canada were graduated. Students received a computing science degree from each of the universities and become familiar with the languages, cultures, societies, and academic institutions in both countries.
