The program is currently designed to run for one or two MSOE academic semesters (either Fall or Spring, or both). In Italy, students will take five classes during one semester and then two classes during the January intercession.

Key features:

  • All courses are taught in English
  • Students work with their program director/advisor to select courses to be sure the credits will transfer to their major at MSOE
  • Students will have the opportunity to take international courses that interest them but may not be available at MSOE
