Program Description:


United Kingdom: Exploring English Engineering and Culture
London ViewThe purpose of this course is to expose students to engineering as a global profession. Students will learn how to work as an engineer in an international environment. Focusing on the United Kingdom, students will learn the culture, customs, and history of another country, especially in regards to engineering. Students will travel to that country in order to gain practical, first-hand experience with the coursework. The travel will focus not on sightseeing, but on site visits to sites of cultural and historic relevance, as well as factories, facilities and universities relevant to the study and practice of engineering.
