Cultural Bridges to Latin America

Have you ever wondered about the history behind the ideas you learned in your engineering classes? Or would you like to think more about the social impact of technological advances?

Do you want to know more about the cultures and career opportunities of Latin American countries where you might use your technical skills?

Do you want to use your communication skills to help people understand science and technology?

Are you interested in participating in study abroad, Engineers Without Borders, or Miner Challenge in Latin America, but don’t know where to start?

If the answer is yes to any of these questions, then you should consider taking a set of four related courses that bring together the humanities and technical fields around themes related to sustainability and environmental projects in Latin America.
