There is a new study abroad opportunity available to students in Syracuse University’s College of Engineering and Computer Science—a semester in the bustling and vibrant city of Strasbourg.
The program, open to second-year students in aerospace, biomedical, chemical, civil, electrical, environmental, and mechanical engineering, will take place for the first time in the Fall 2016 semester. Enrolled students will take engineering courses and an introductory French language course at SU Strasbourg and at the Institut National des Sciences Appliquées Strasbourg. Each course will follow the Syracuse University curricula and syllabi and keep students on track in their programs.
Strasbourg, situated on the border of France and Germany, is nicknamed “the city of roads” for its strategic location and is often considered the “capital of Europe.” Students will be immersed in French and European culture, live with French hosts, and have access to a wealth of activities and field trips arranged by the staff at SU Strasbourg. In addition, there is time to explore all that the city has to offer. Students can visit an open-air market, catch a film at one of the numerous movie theaters, sit in on a session of the Council of Europe, go to a rock concert at La Laiterie, or simply stroll along the banks of the river Ill in the glorious September sun.
Additional information is available on Study Abroad’s website. To apply, complete the online application that is specific to the engineering program.
