Spain: Engineering in the Roman Times

Study early Roman engineering marvels in Spain. This program will identify and explore technological and scientific developments from Spain and the United Kingdom principally, associated with the Roman Empire. Key elements include Roman engineered structures and the societal, cultural context for why they were needed and then constructed. These design and cultural characteristics will be compared to how current designs are done in both Western Europe and the United States. Historical and cultural contexts will illuminate how and why the Romans did what they did and provide how modern societies treat their achievements today. Learn more about the program here.

BAE Belgium

NC State BAE has collaborated with Texas A&M to offer students an impactful study abroad program in Belgium.¬†The Belgium Environmental Science & Engineering program is held at Katholieke Univeristy of Leuven, which is located approximately 30 km east of Brussells in the city of Leuven. K.U. Leuven was established in 1425 and it is now a modern, world-class university with excellent facilities. Leuven is a student-oriented city with a cosmopolitan atmosphere and many cafes and restaurants. The city is compact and very conducive to travel by foot or bicycle. All students will be provided a bicycle for transportation to class and around town. Read about Sam Blackman’s trip to Belgium for this program.

Research Abroad

Other students have the opportunity to perform research abroad with their advisors or other faculty. These high impact educational opportunities provide invaluable lessons to both undergraduate and graduate students. Working in research groups with faculty and students from other countries increases global knowledge and provides a space to grow personally and as a researcher.
