JP Student Innovation Centre
JP Student Innovation Centre (JPIC) was established in 2015 to showcase excellent work by our QMUL-BUPT JP students in Beijing. It also aims to promote continued work which leads to knowledge transfer products or research outputs. It had been serving as a hub to bring together QMUL, BUPT and worldwide companies such as China Mobile, IBM, Juniper. Inc, etc.
The centre is managed by the following EECS academics:
- Principal Advisor: Prof Michael Chai (QM Director of Joint Programme with BUPT)
- Director: Dr Matthew Tang
Centre Committee 2021/22 (in alphabetical order)
Dr Mona Jaber, Dr Ethan Lau, Dr Yuanwei Liu, Dr Michaela MacDonald, Dr Zhijin Qin
Each of the committee members contribute to our outstanding activities/workshops with our JP students in Beijing.

JP and EECS academics propose projects in a wide range of interests: multimedia, networks, legal research, machine learning, business technology, drones, etc. JP students are interviewed and selected for each of the projects and gain research experience through supervision by our QM staff.
The projects carry through the summer and possibly become the final year (graduation) projects of the involved students.
Every year a mini-poster conference will be organised to showcase the outcomes of the projects, to fellow students and academics in our partner institution BUPT.
