Sustainability and Innovation in Engineering: Osnabruck

 

The International Study Program is an intensive and interdisciplinary program in the areas of engineering. It takes place at Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences each summer semester but this year will be virtual.  The program is advertised to U.S. students and German students. 
 
You can read more about the program here.
 
The goal of the program is to introduce students to new ways of thinking about the real-world challenges of sustainability and their potential role in solving such problems with innovative approaches. The International Study Program is a great opportunity for visiting students to combine practice-oriented studies with an interesting cultural experience and to receive  the equivalent of 1 US  3 credit course in a short period of time! 
 
The International Study Program explores the technological, historical and environmental facets of sustainability innovation in Germany.
 
More detailed information on the program components can be found here.

Academic Description: 
You can find the course descriptions and syllabi on the UAS7 Osnabruck website.
Application Instructions: 

If you are applying to a Pitt-recognized program (PRP), you must work concurrently on the internal Pitt application that you create at www.globalexperiences.pitt.edu and on your program provider’s application through their respective websites. You can’t move forward without completing both applications. While program providers’ application deadlines are often later than our internal Pitt deadline, you have to finish the Pitt application’s pre-decision steps by our internal deadline. A Pitt GEO Advisor will ensure that both your GPA and your disciplinary record allow your status to be changed to “nominated” on your Pitt application.  The actual acceptance to your PRP comes from the provider only after you are nominated by Pitt. Reach out to your Pitt GEO Advisor with any questions. We are here to help!
 
For general Pitt-Recognized Program advising and course approval, please reach out to your school's advisor: 

*If you do not see your school/department listed here, please email globalexperiences@pitt.edu and we will connect you with the appropriate advisor. 
You must apply to the Pitt system AND directly to this university.
