Fall information sessions for the 2019 AsiaTech and EuroTech Immersion Experience trips hosted by the School of Information Studies (iSchool) have been scheduled.

These 3-credit traveling seminars expose students to some of the largest global corporations so they can see first hand how these institutions use information to address global technology challenges. Participants will get an inside view of the top global corporations across Europe or Asia while visiting historical and cultural highlights along the way. Students will also have free time to explore each city on their own, as well as visit cultural attractions as a group.

The trips are open to students at all schools and colleges at Syracuse University.

The 17-day AsiaTech trip runs from mid-May through early June of 2019, and will take students to Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand. More details are available on the AsiaTech webpage.

The EuroTech trip is a 17-day seminar that runs from the end of July through mid-August of 2019 that visits London, Bruges, Amsterdam, Brussels, Paris, Lyon, Geneva, Munich, Venice and Rome. The EuroTech webpage has additional information about the trip.

Information sessions covering both programs will be held in 347 Hinds Hall on the following days:

  • Oct 2, 11:00 a.m.
  • Oct 3, 11:30 a.m.
  • Oct 8, 5:00 p.m. 

Applications for the programs are due on Oct. 15. Questions can be directed to Kathy Allen, assistant dean of student and career services at the iSchool.
