More Than an Adventure

This summer study program is perfect for students who want to make up credits after taking time for an internship or co-op. The 10-week summer program allows students to earn 12-14 credits that apply directly to their engineering major. And, when the four-day school week is over, students enrolled in this program can use their three-day weekends to explore India -- a continent of unparalleled beauty and history.
