Request Info

The University of Miami College of Engineering will host three specialized workshops for international students. These workshops, led by the departments of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Chemical, Environmental, and Materials Engineering, are designed to cater to students interested in higher education in the United States.

These intensive three-week workshops include faculty lectures, hands-on practical sessions, faculty-student interactions, and collaborative group projects. In addition to academic enrichment, students will have the chance to explore Miami's attractions and enjoy a three-night cruise to Key West and the Bahamas.


January 21, 2024 – February 8, 2024


Each workshop is designed for a select group of fewer than 20 students. Our intimate setting is purposefully curated to ensure that each of you receives an unparalleled learning experience. With a smaller cohort, you'll have ample opportunities to engage one-on-one with our esteemed faculty, fostering deeper connections and understanding. This size also allows us to offer a more personalized touch, ensuring that every participant feels seen, heard, and exceptionally cared for.
