Short-Term Programs

Short-Term Programs allow students to take a course or more than one for a short time typically during the summer. Some of the Panther Program abroad programs below are taught by SSoE faculty members. These program abroad typically focus on a topic of relevance for global engineering, including sustainability, environmental design, international supply chain networks, or engineering practices throughout history.

All programs carry Pitt academic credit and contain an international component which lasts between ten days and three weeks. Programs may travel abroad over spring break or during the summer term.
