The construction industry is becoming increasingly international. Through this Study Abroad Program, you visit international construction sites and firms, as well as various construction-related organizations and firms. Students develop a greater appreciation for international practices, culture, and technology.

Each week of this intensive, exciting program you will have two days of classes, two days of structured site visits in and around London, then an independent extended, three-day weekend that begins early  each Thursday afternoon and ends when classes resume at noon on Monday, allowing you much time to explore Europe on your own.

Each year, students take weekend trips to Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, Netherlands, Belgium, France, Ireland, and elsewhere.
