Study Abroad

Engineering is an increasingly global profession. So ISU CCEE has an unique study abroad opportunity for students. Each May, instructors from ISU CCEE travel with Iowa State students to locations in Europe to study global transportation systems.
Global Perspectives in Transportation (Civil Engineering [CE] 395) is worth three credit hours. Through this course, students will begin to gain an international understanding of the impact of different historical, cultural, social, environmental and political factors for transportation and infrastructure projects. In addition, this course will help students prepare for future careers in both the public and private sector. The course rotates between locations in Italy and Great Britain and lasts for two weeks.


Global Perspectives in Transportation (CE 395)

All instructors are professors of civil, construction and environmental engineering at Iowa State University. The ISU professors will be present for the duration of the two-week course. Global Perspectives in Transportation can serve as an engineering topic elective for civil engineering students on the general track. Sophomores, juniors and seniors are encouraged to participate in this opportunity. Possible arrangements can be made for interested graduate students and freshmen.
