Engineering and Computer Science Internships in Argentina

UC Davis Summer Abroad Internships is an academic program that aims to enhance students’ education by incorporating academic coursework with experiential learning outside of the classroom setting. This program carries a total of 8.00* quarter units in eight weeks. 

Students on Summer Abroad Internship programs earn regular UC Davis course credit which may be used to fulfill degree, major, minor, General Education (GE) requirements. UC Davis students can use Summer Abroad courses to fulfill their academic requirements as listed in the General Catalog. Students from other campuses should consult with the academic advisors from their home campuses to determine whether courses taken on our programs may be used to fulfill their specific academic requirements. 

Auditing is not an option. 

*Note: Semester students who will apply for Summer Financial Aid should contact Summer Abroad to enquire about enrolling in additional unit(s).

Engineering (ENG) 198. Engineering Internship Reflection (2 units, P/NP grading only)

Engineering Internship Reflection is intended as a forum to connect the work students do at their internship to its broader social and cultural context. Through online discussions and assignments, students will have a community with whom to share their reflections and connect with the UC Davis engineering writing faculty leader. This course includes participation on excursions and tours and attendance to guest lectures. Students are often asked to write reflective pieces. Assignment topics vary by program.
