Science Without Borders
Thanks to a program established by the Brazilian government, Rose-Hulman has the opportunity to educate 17 students through the Science Without Borders (SWB) program.
Brazil announced an ambitious initiative to send up to 100,000 undergraduate and graduate students overseas to some of the best technology schools in the world by 2014, Rose-Hulman was one of the schools selected.
Eight students arrived on campus in the spring of 2012 and were joined by another nine in the fall. Each student will spend three quarters studying in areas of electrical engineering, computer science, software engineering, and computer engineering. They will also participate in summer internships prior to returning to Brazil to complete their degrees.
