International Engineering Interim Course
January Term (Interim) Abroad
There are many opportunities for students to travel overseas during interims while at Calvin. These opportunities are cost effective as well, because there are scholarships available to students wishing to participate in these trips. Each year there are about 2-4 off campus classes led by engineering professors. In addition, many classes led by non-engineering professors take students off campus.
The four engineering off campus interims are:
- Business, Engineering and Religion in the Context of European Culture, which travels through Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Paris, Luxemberg, Heidelberg, Munich, Prague, Berlin and more. This class is led by Prof. Ned Nielsen.
- Dutch Landscapes, which takes students to the Netherlands. This class is led by Prof. Robert Hoeksema.
- Transforming Cambodia, which travels to Thailand and Cambodia. This class is led by Prof. Leonard De Rooy.
- Business and Engineering in China, which takes students to China. This class has been led by Prof. April Si from the Engineering Department and Prof. Leonard Van Drunen from the Business Department.
Each of these interim classes introduces students to the global market for business and engineering in addition to teaching them about other cultures. Students also deepen their appreciation of the world God has created.
