At Home & Abroad

Preparing Students for Global Success

Engaged learning—it’s a type of active, hands-on learning that happens beyond the walls of the classroom. At RMU, we believe engaged learning is vital to our students’ growth and development as they go out into the world and launch their career. A big part of this is making sure students have unique learning experiences both at home and abroad.

Students in RMU’s School of Engineering, Mathematics and Science (SEMS) have the opportunity to gain real-world experience though internships with regional and national employers such as Bayer, Boeing, Centria, Cutler Hammer, FedEx, NASA, Pittsburgh Logistics Systems, U.S. Steel, and many others. We also have valuable linkage programs with top schools like Drexel, Thomas Jefferson, Temple University, SUNY, Pitt, Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, LECOM, Seton Hill University, Kings College, Chatham University, Palmer Chiropractic College, and NY Chiropractic College.

SEMS also provides various international opportunities that expose our students to different cultures and prepare them for success in today’s global economy. Our faculty represent eight different countries on various continents, and our study-abroad opportunities have included destinations such as Germany for students in our Energy and Sustainability class, and Scotland for a developmental exchange program between RMU and Edinburgh Napier University. We are currently working on expanding exchanges to countries in Africa, Asia, South America, and Australia, as well.
