To investigate the application of engineering principles in countries other than the UK.
To develop the self-confidence and maturity to operate effectively in a different cultural setting.

Learning Outcomes:
On successful completion of the unit students should be able to:
* Demonstrate improved communication skills and an ability to work in an environment with an unfamiliar culture.
* Demonstrate and awareness of the application of engineering in a different cultural and/or climatic setting to that in the UK.

Technical engineering skills - facilitated.
Communication skills - facilitated.

Programmes of work will be decided by negotiation between the Director of Studies and Exchanges Tutor at Bath, the host University and the student. Units studied should complement and not duplicate those which the student will undertake in Bath. Engineering design work will normally be undertaken. Language courses and courses relating to aspects of the host country should be considered in addition to topics in engineering.
