Sydney Engineering Program

The Sydney Engineering Program offers upper-division engineering students the opportunity to take technical and engineering courses through direct enrollment at University of Sydney.

Participants also have the opportunity to make the most of their time abroad with CAS IP101 The Global Learning Experience (1 credit), an online, Pass/Fail course with brief readings and experiential assignments that accompany them while living and studying in Sydney.
