THE NETHERLANDS AND SCOTLAND
Join in this unique opportunity to learn about water resources engineering in a setting with a rich history of extreme water challenges. Twenty-six percent of the land area of the Netherlands lies below sea level. These areas are largely farmlands that have been reclaimed from the ocean over the last several centuries through the industrious engineering of the Dutch people. The Netherlands is regarded today as a global leader in water resources engineering.
Academic and cultural highlights: Earn technical elective/capstone course credit. Meet students at host universities. Work on global water challenge research projects.
