Program Description

Tentative Dates: May 22 to June 7, 2018 (Maymester) 

This program will primarily visit Germany, the United Kingdom, and France with possible side trips to Austria and Monaco.  The trip is limited to 20 students to provide a low student to faculty ratio to promote learning in context and mentorship during the trip.  Emphasis will be placed on aviation related sites such as museums, aviation manufacturing and repair facilities, flight testing, and research institutions.  This program will also tour the Airbus aircraft factory in Toulouse, France.  Furthermore, other important sites to relate to European and human history such as the Dachau concentration camp outside Munich, city tours in the major cities, high speed rail, and preserved historical villages will be visited.

Prior to traveling, the students will enroll in 1 credit AT 452 during the 2nd 8-week module of the Spring 2018 semester.  AT 452 is a preparation course for students participating in study abroad programs with the School of Aviation and Transportation Technology.  During this once a week, 2-hour meeting, students will learn about: the customs of the countries they will visit, navigating foreign cities, safety, and important historical background of the sites they will tour.  Additionally, Purdue students will be introduced to European students to start collaborative projects before leaving the United States.

During the program, students will enroll in 3 credits of AT 453.  AT 453 is the globalization course for students participating in study abroad programs with the School of Aviation and Transportation Technology.  Assessment of this 3 credit hour program focuses on a written group document and presentation on the final day of the trip as well as an individual trip log, written assignments, and reflective portfolio

This program will be open to all Purdue students. First priority will be students from the School of Aviation and Transportation Technology (SATT) in the Aviation Management, Airport Management and Operations, Airline Management and Operations, Aerospace Financial Analysis, Unmanned Aerial Systems, and Aeronautical Engineering Technology majors.
