Cleaning Technologies Group (CTG) has announced that it has started a cooperative education program at its CTG Asia division with the Joint Co-op Institute (JCI), a partnership between the University of Cincinnati and Chongqing University. 


The JCI students are all Chinese nationals who are studying a UC engineering curriculum being taught entirely in English by both UC and CQU professors. This program enables students to gain practical experience to complement their university education and better prepare them to transition into the workforce. 


CTG Asia recently hired Zhao Bi Han, who goes by the English name Ivy.  Ivy is a freshman at JCI in Chongqing studying in the Mechanical Engineering Program.  Her desire to design machines made CTG Asia an ideal place to start her Co-op career.  Another factor in her decision is the location of CTG headquarters in Cincinnati, Ohio.  Ivy will finish the last years of her studies at the University of Cincinnati and is expected to receive degrees from both universities.


Cleaning Technologies Group has utilized the co-op programs at local universities for decades.  Barney Bosse, CEO of CTG participated in the University of Cincinnati Co-op Program in the 1990’s and is a mechanical engineering graduate of the university. 


“Co-op students are a great source of future employees at CTG and, while teaching the students about the various aspects of an engineering business, the company has the benefit of new hires being instantly productive after graduation,” he said.
