The CFE and International Programs in Engineering (IPE) collaborate for summer Entrepreneurship Focused Study Abroad. As dedicated College of Engineering partners, both departments offered two new study abroad opportunities to U-M students Summer ’16. May through June brought a 6-wk/ 9 cr program in Singapore and July brought a 3-wk/ 3 cr program in Italy. Applications to both offerings were robust, from students campus-wide! Selected and participating students found themselves immersed in intense academic courses in partnership with host-country universities (yielding transfer credit), interactive treks to local startup enterprises, meetings with alums/companies/venture capitalists, leadership building/team-bonding workshops, as well as the local culture of both destinations: Europe and Asia! Back on U-M’s campus, student participants RAVED about their entrepreneurially focused overseas experiences!
Applications for CFE/IPE Summer 2017 offerings are due February 1 (priority) or February 26 (regular decision).
These two and additional IPE study abroad opportunities are further detailed on IPE’s website.
