Undergrads: Study abroad in India
Undergraduate engineering students can take advantage of a new travel course to India that combines engineering, social sciences and health communications.
EECS 342I: Global Issues, Health and Sustainability will be offered during the fall semester of 2014 over winter break. The course is designed to help students understand culturally relevant community engagement strategies to ensure project acceptance in underserved and developing countries. Students will visit field sites to observe the kinds of projects engineers implement, including infrastructure to support green energy and access to water.
The course could satisfy a number of curricular requirements, including pre-med studies, engineering technical electives, global and cultural diversity, and humanities requirements.
