Last Chance to Apply: Spring 2023 Viterbi WRIT 340 Spring Break Abroad Program

Applications are due tonight for the new Spring 2023 Viterbi WRIT 340 Spring Break Abroad Program. Viterbi students participating in this program can make progress towards their engineering degree by taking WRIT 340 in the Spring 2023 semester and traveling abroad with the program during spring break.

This special version of WRIT 340, Advanced Communication for Engineers, will examine the Grand Challenges of Engineering from a global perspective and explore the multi-faceted relationships between Cities, Citizens, and Engineering.

Although the Grand Challenges of Engineering were developed by the (American) National Academy of Engineering, engineers worldwide agree with their urgency.  To that end, Global Grand Challenges Summits have been held not only in the United States, but also in China and the United Kingdom.  Spending spring break abroad underscores the international cooperation needed to successfully meet these Challenges.

Application deadline is October 16, 2022 at 11:59pm PST. Scholarships are available for the program.

Program abroad dates in Berlin, Germany: March 10-20, 2023

The spring break portion of the class may require students to miss one-three days of classes on campus due to travel.
