About the Program

Designed for STEM students, this program is specifically tailored for future engineers hoping to add international experience to their studies. We know the type of dedication and commitment it takes to complete the specific course progression required for graduation, so these requirements are baked into the program. We’ve partnered with Dublin City University, one of Ireland’s leading Young Universities (universities that are under 50-years-old), where students will have access to enroll in a combination of rigorous STEM courses. To complete the global experience, students will also participate in a hands-on IES Abroad course called Designing the Sustainable City. This is a unique, project-based course that examines and proposes solutions for issues affecting the local community.
