Overview

This program offers a full spring semester abroad with six Texas A&M University classes available on-site. It is designed to align with the civil and environmental engineering curriculum primarily for the junior year, but is open to students from other engineering departments as long as they register for at least two on-site classes. Please talk to your advisor to find out if the courses will fit into your degree plan.

The program fits into the context of Rome, the "Eternal City," one of the most culturally rich cities in the world. Students will have a unique opportunity to experience a full variety of engineering problems and solutions, taking into consideration the local cultures and traditions. Students will also be able to interact with peers from around the world who speak different languages, resulting in a truly unforgettable and enriching international experience that will provide both academic and personal benefits.

Texas A&M students will be integrated into the Department of Engineering at Roma Tre University, which will provide classroom facilities and needed IT resources.

Three of the Texas A&M on-site classes will be taught by Dr. Luca Quadrifoglio, and the others will be taught by qualified adjunct faculty from Roma Tre University. All classes are taught in English, using the typical format found at Texas A&M. Students can also register for suitable online courses through Texas A&M.

The class week will be Monday through Thursday with Fridays off. Two 10-day breaks will be embedded within the program calendar. Field trips — some technical — will also be included. These include four weekend trips (Tuscany/Florence, Umbria/Assisi/Orvieto, Pompeii/Sorrento/Capri/Amalfi Coast, and Abruzzo/L'Aquila/Appennini Mountains) and three to five day trips, in addition to typical Roman cultural visits (Colosseum, Imperial Fora, Vatican museums, Italian Serie A soccer game, etc.). All other weekends (three to five) are free for the students to explore and travel around Italy and Europe. A dozen group meals, a 20-hour Italian course and optional valuable internship opportunities will also be available during the program: local engineering firms and labs will offer positions requiring students to work five to eight hours a week with English-speaking supervisors. Students will be able to choose whether they want to stay in a shared apartment or in a local home (extra fee of $1,125, but includes breakfast and dinner Monday through Thursday).

ACCENT International (local U.S.-based experienced provider of study abroad programs with more than 25 years of experience) will coordinate all logistics, accommodation and internship arrangements, provide 24/7 emergency support and offer their facility and social events to students.
