Auburn University’s Laboratory for Innovative Technology and Engineering Education research group is hosting an informational meeting for a summer abroad program on Wednesday, Sept. 29, at 4 p.m. in 278 Ross Hall. This exciting study abroad opportunity offers students a chance to live and conduct research in India, network internationally and improve quality of life through engineering technologies. Students partner with a program veteran who is familiar with the area and language.

Research conducted during previous study abroad trips includes telemedicine applications, functional dorm design, solar power and sustainability, data synchronization and product design. The program is funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation. Eligible students include U.S. citizens and permanent residents. Both graduate and undergraduate students, as well as female and minority students, are encouraged to apply. For more information contact Ashley Clayson at
