Program Description

This program aims to expose Purdue Chemical Engineering undergraduate students to the academic and industrial environment of Europe, through activities at universities and companies in Belgium, Netherlands, and the United Kingdom.  In the context of a global economy, it is critical for our students to have knowledge of foreign cultures.  Europe plays a critical economic role and offers excellent examples of industrial and engineering development.  This course will focus on energy and will help students understand how education, research, and industrial development impact economic and social evolution.  

We will visit the world headquarters for four major companies:  Total (Belgium), Shell (Netherlands), BP and Johnson Matthey (United Kingdom).  Besides the academic and industrial component this course will also involve a cultural aspect through various activities in each country, such as visiting the European Parliament in Brussels, the Diamond District and Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, the Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, and Stonehenge in the United Kingdom.
