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.

The programs below link to more specific information about each program.

 When you go abroad you are required to have the department Faculty Director sign off on how the program counts for requirements. The course approval form can be found here.

Many of our programs are already pre-approved for how they fulfill requirements. Please see below how departments have approved panther programs. Please check with the Faculty Director of your department if you don't see the program you plan to do on the below lists. 

For those departments not listed here, please contact the Faculty Director of that department how a program can count for requirements.
