Welcome to the Rome Summer Engineering Program 2017
Come study abroad in Rome for 6 weeks in the summer! Students live in central Rome while taking 2 engineering classes at Notre Dame's Rome Center. They will explore the centuries of history, visit famous monuments, view beautiful artwork, and experience life in Italy.
The Summer Engineering Program is a great experience for all undergraduate engineers. In the six-week program, students take two engineering classes (six credits), go on program excursions, and live in the heart of Rome!
Rome, the Eternal City, is great to visit because of its history and culture. Studying in Italy is a true abroad experience because the locals speak Italian (but classes are in English) and live a different lifestyle than Americans are used too. Rome is is also the the home to the head of the Catholic Church; the Pope in the Vatican. Rome is famous for its architecture, food, and art and has been around for centuries. The Summer Engineering Program helps students discover the culture of Rome by taking students on excursions throughout the city.
Summer is a great time to study abroad because students don't miss being on campus in the fall and spring. It is a good time to live in another country because there is more going on in the summer. Taking classes in the summer allows students to get ahead in their credits so they can have more flexibility in their schedule later.
