New Report: Learn by Doing: Expanding International Internships/Work Abroad Opportunities for U.S. STEM Students
is the outcome of a special workshop held in April 2012 in Washington, DC, to explore internship and work abroad programs in the STEM fields, specifically creating, maintaining, funding and assessing these programs. A coalition of education abroad professionals from the NAFSA: Association for International Educators’ Work, Internship, and Volunteer Abroad (WIVA) Subcommittee, and the University of California, San Diego joined IIE in convening the event, which was attended by more than 60 participants from across the United States and Canada.
The Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs (VPAA) of the University of Puerto Rico (UPR) needs external reviewers to evaluate four written proposals for new Engineering graduate programs to be offered at UPR Mayaguez. Ideally, the evaluators should hold Ph.D. degrees in the corresponding discipline and must have taught courses in similar graduate programs. The programs are currently under review by the UPR's VPAA.
The proposals are written in English and the programs are as follows:
Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering
Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering
Master of Science and Master of Engineering in Materials Science and Engineering
Ph.D., Master of Science and Master of Engineering in Bioengineering
