Summer Study Abroad Program
As the practice of engineering has become increasingly globalized the Albert Nerken School of Engineering has sent its students around the world to better enrich their work, their lives and the lives of others. Established in 1989, the Study Abroad Program has sent students to Iceland, Ireland, The United Kingdom, Belgium, Germany, Spain, Greece, Egypt, Ghana, Israel, Singapore, South Korea & Japan. Current students can study in Dresden or Hamburg, Germany, the cities of Burgos or Madrid, in Spain, or Iceland or Ghana.
During each summer we offer a 6-8 week study abroad experience. This is open to a limited number of students that are in good academic standing and have completed their second or third year. A student can earn six credits of independent study (EID 300) by participating in a project under the supervision of faculty at one of the below universities.
Students are responsible for the cost of travel, food and accommodations.
Participants are encouraged to sightsee and take part in the cultural life of the host city. Students who want to travel an extended period (a week, etc.) should do so after their study abroad program is finished. Weekend trips are fine during that time, as long as it does not interfere with one's study. At the end of the assignment, many have traveled the European and Asian continents.
Upon return to Cooper, each student must submit to the Associate Dean a formal report of his/her activities. This report is in two parts: a technical report covers project-research activities and a cultural report documents their experience with the country.
