Including destinations like: Japan, Australia, Colombia, Ukraine, Peru, Kenya, and the United Kingdom. Students will have the opportunity to tour manufacturing plants, laboratories, and receive lectures from faculty at Purdue’s partner universities among many other activities. For the first time, Nuclear Engineering has developed not one, but two study abroad programs. One will take place in the Ukraine, giving students the opportunity to learn about the Chernobyl Nuclear accident from 1986, visit the disaster zone, and speak to Chernobyl survivors. The second will be in Delft, Netherlands for class time at the Technical University of Delft, and on to places like the Belgian Nuclear Research Center.

Spring break was also a very busy time for our students with 204 students participating in study abroad programs, to great locations including Ecuador, Germany, Mexico, Australia, and Israel.

The Office of Global Engineering Programs & Partnerships assists faculty with the development of short-term study abroad programs, coordinates the logistics, and assists students prepare for their time abroad.
