At the School of Mines, we believe in the power of exchange and strive to develop cross-cultural connections. Our students study in Spain and attend conferences in Dubai, conduct research in India and compete in the United Kingdom. Many scientists and engineers work on collaborative projects that involve multicultural teams or travel to unfamiliar cultures. International experience through study abroad is a great way to gain a broader world view and global working experience.
MAKING A DIFFERENCE: In Tanzania, design teams demonstrated a water-purification system with the potential to provide drinking water, an accomplishment they replicated in Mongolia and Egypt. Students in Chile refurbished a school for orphans. Students in Uganda developed a water system for a university. Whether you're studying sustainability in Copenhagen or involved in a humanitarian project in Haiti, you'll be engineering the solutions of tomorrow and creating a better world today. Our Study Abroad experiences aren't just life-changing, they change lives.
