Engineering Rome

Course Information

Engineering Rome is a UW Exploration Seminar** that covers Roman and Italian engineering over a range of 3,000 years from Ancient Rome to the present day. It consists of one 5-credit course, CEE 409 Engineering Rome, which takes place in Rome, Italy at the UW Rome Center for three weeks during the Summer-Fall quarter break. There is also a once-per-week orientation session that meets in preceeding Spring to provide background information, and program orientation.

**Exploration seminar: short-term study abroad programs (3 weeks) led by UW faculty that take place during Early Fall Start which is the gap period between the end of the UW Summer Quarter and the beginning of Fall Quarter. These programs differ from other study abroad programs because the focus is on getting students outside the classroom and engaged in more hands-on learning.
