Summer and short-term programs offer opportunities to gain global experience in addition to regular semester programs. For students who do not wish to make a semester-long commitment or who have less flexibility within their major, summer or short-term programs provide additional opportunities to gain international experience.
Penn State offers summer session courses abroad. Some of these programs are designed specifically for College of Engineering students. The courses available through these programs have already been evaluated by College of Engineering faculty and the determination of how these courses may be used to meet degree requirements has been made.
During the summer, many programs are offered through other institutions or organizations. The variety of available programs allows students to choose one that fits with their interests and career goals.
