Engineering Switzerland: Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering Abroad

Held during Early Fall Start in partnership with OMA&D’s Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) and the College of Engineering, this program introduces students to the history of Swiss engineering and how it helped this small nation become a leader in high-tech research and engineering developments.

Students will learn basic concepts of electrical circuits and systems, and will be taught through a series of lectures and lab sessions at EPFL, one of Europe’s top universities for science and engineering.

Students will also explore many of the technical and cultural sites in Switzerland. Planned excursions include the CERN research facility and the Large Hadron Collider, the city of Zermatt and the famous Matterhorn, the Olympic Museum, and a cruise on Lake Geneva.

The dates of the 2020 program are Aug. 16 – Sept. 12.
