Short Term Engineering Program (STEP) Abroad

Faculty-led (Departmental) STEPs Abroad are fast-paced, unique international experiences typically lasting from one to six weeks. Credits earned vary by program, and most will involve a combination of industry visits, lectures, site visits, class work, and visits to tourist destinations. These programs may take place during Spring Break, May/Summer or Winter Break. Students will earn one to six credits depending on program length and academic content.
