Education Abroad for SRES, Engineering Physics, & Environmental Engineering
Why study SRES, Engineering physics, & environmental engineering abroad?
Sustainability and renewable energy are arguably two of the hottest global issues today. An increasing number of institutions, from small consulting firms to large multinational companies, have international interests and are seeking employees with the ability to work cross-culturally. By including an international experience as part of a UW-Platteville degree, students can learn to apply sustainability principles in their personal, academic, and professional lives. By taking coursework or participating on a hands-on leaning experience such as an internship or service learning project, students gain personal experience in another environment that may be more or less sustainable than the United States. As a result, they can also make more informed judgments about environmental challenges on a global scale.
Upon graduation, having international experience on a resume can also help distinguish applicants in the competitive job market. It can help demonstrate a global perspective of the field and real-world issues, flexibility and adaptability, and knowledge of and openness to other cultures.
**Students can ask their academic advisors if they have any recommended programs and/or courses based on their personal or advisees' experiences abroad.
