The Fall 2019 CIE Study Abroad Fair will be on Wednesday, October 2 from 1pm to 4pm in the Student Union, Ballrooms A, B, and C.
Stop by the Tickle College of Engineering table to find out more about the 2020 Engineering in London (EIL) study abroad program directed by Dr. Mike Berry.
In past years, students in the EIL program have toured the City of London, as well as visiting such places as the Royal Maritime Museum, Westminster Abbey, the Royal Observatory, the London Eye, the Royal Institution and Michael Faraday Laboratory, the Globe Theater, Buckingham Palace, the London Water and Steam Museum, and Bletchley Park, where Alan Turing and his colleagues broke the naval Enigma code during World War II.
All EIL students take ECE 301, Circuits, and ME 331, Thermodynamics in London and earn 6 credit hours of technical elective credits toward their major. They also work on various projects, such as building a prototype crosswalk emulator using an Arduino kit.
Among the most cited benefits of studying abroad are: increased self-confidence, increased maturity, enhanced interest in academic study, improved problem-solving skills, reinforced commitment to foreign language study, enhanced understanding of one’s own cultural values and biases, new career direction, and improved employability.
The EIL program cost will remain at $4,999 (excludes some meals and airfare). COSC majors can use both ECE 301 and ME 331 as upper-division technical electives for the degree and the Hope Scholarship can be used to cover tuition during Summer Session I (EIL 2020 runs from May 29 to June 27, 2020). Also, a CompEng/EE major can enroll in the program and receive COSC 493 credit (instead of ECE 301) for TAing the ECE 301 the course in London.
Deadlines for EIL applications:
#1: November 14, 2019 with notification of acceptance by November 22, 2019.
