It allows readers to gain an understanding of Chinese engineering students’ academic lives in U.S. institutions through a cognitive theoretical lens. It also highlights a number of factors that can potentially facilitate adult students’ cognitive development, and extends the discussion on the benefits of study-abroad and cross-cultural education to the epistemological domain."@en ;
