UT PGE is hosting its second-annual Croatia Maymester Engineering Program in the summer of 2017. The program, led by UT PGE associate professor David DiCarlo, takes place in the beautiful historic cities of Zagreb and Dubrovnik, Croatia from May 27 to June 26.

The program provides students with insights on international oil and gas operations and the ability to learn computer programming in order to solve complex energy problems, through PGE 310. Students will attend several excursions to explore geological sites across Croatia and a visit to gas storage facilities near Zagreb.

More than 3,000 Longhorns study in 80 countries every year, and UT Austin ranks second in the nation for the most students studying abroad, according to the Institute of International Education’s latest annual report. The Cockrell School of Engineering has a dedicated international office offering 14 summer faculty-led programs and 16 university exchange programs to students.

With UT PGE’s alumni working and living abroad population representing 60 countries, it is important for petroleum engineering students to participate in an international educational opportunity during their time on the Forty Acres.

During the program, students will receive UT PGE faculty mentorship and the valuable opportunity to network with members of the oil and gas industry, while gaining international and cross-cultural communication skills.
