AsiaTech, EuroTech Information Sessions Scheduled
Fall information sessions for the 2016 AsiaTech and EuroTech Immersion Experience trips hosted by the School of Information Studies (iSchool) have been scheduled.
These 3-credit traveling seminars expose students to some of the largest global corporations so they can see first-hand how these institutions use information to address global technology challenges. Participants will get an inside view of the top global corporations across Europe or Asia while visiting historical and cultural highlights along the way.
Students will also have free time to explore each city on their own, as well as visit cultural attractions as a group.
The 16-day AsiaTech trip runs in late May and early June of 2016, and will take students to Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand. A tentative itinerary is available on the AsiaTech webpage.
The EuroTech trip is a 17-day seminar in August of 2016 that visits London, Bruges, Amsterdam, Brussels, Paris, Lyon, Geneva, Munich, Venice and Rome. The EuroTech webpage has a tentative itinerary for the trip.
Applications for both programs are due on Oct. 9.
Information sessions will be held in 347 Hinds Hall on the following days:
- Sept. 22: 2 p.m.
- Sept. 23: 5 p.m.
- Oct. 2: 3 p.m.
Questions can be directed to Kathy Allen, executive director of student services at the iSchool.
