abstract

  • The Belgium Environmental Science and Engineering Study Abroad program at Texas A&M University (TAMU) was designed to introduce students to European methods for protecting natural resources. The program offers courses in environmental hydrology and waste treatment processes for junior and senior students. The five week program consists of two 3 hour courses during the second summer session so the students obtain six hours of engineering credit toward graduation. The program includes four field trips and four seminar speakers. The seminar speakers are from EU and Flemish regulatory agencies and discuss EU methods for soil and water conservation. The Belgium Study Abroad program fee is $2,500, which includes the costs for two TAMU faculty members, lodging, seminar speakers, field trips, bicycle rental, and registration at K.U. Leuven. The students are responsible for making their own travel arrangements.
