The previous study abroad was in the Summer of 2019. During these 12 days, UTEP students will be joined by a group of CTU students. They will attend smart cities lectures, participate in technical writing workshops, visit research centers, and do group projects. All these academic activities will be held on CTU campus. In addition, they will also attend the Smart Cities Symposium and European Transport Congress on May 26 to 27 to learn about smart cities research projects in European countries.
