Led by lecturers Matt Dreher and Brian Strzempkowski, students will take part in an immersive experience intended to further their knowledge and understanding of aviation as a truly global network while also preparing them to operate in an international setting upon graduation. Weekly meetings throughout the semester will cover topics ranging from international aviation governing bodies, differences in the regulatory environment and general cultural awareness.

The program is open to students of all majors and ranks. Applications are accepted through October 5, 2023. Please visit the Office of International Affairs study abroad website for requirements, cost and details.
