2024 Croatia Study Abroad
June 3–July 3, 2024 

Application Deadline
Rolling through March 25

Financial aid is available.

UT PGE hosts an annual study abroad experience to Zagreb and Dubrovnik, Croatia. Led by Professor Maša Prodanović in June and early July, the monthlong program takes place along Croatia’s beautiful coastline, unique rock formations, Roman ruins and quaint historical cities. Students have the opportunity to master fundamental concepts in numerical methods, Python programming, and its relation to subsurface problems while they explore related energy topics in a European context that are relevant today more than ever.

Students visit a gas storage site near Zagreb and attend selected talks at the local Petroleum Engineering Summer School (PESS) in Dubrovnik. They travel to national parks that are prime (and beautiful) examples of karst hydrogeology, visit the birthplace and museum of Nikola Tesla, and spend time in the capital of Zagreb, forming lasting friendships with University of Zagreb students.

The program is open to all students in the Cockrell School of Engineering and the Jackson School of Geosciences who are in good academic and disciplinary standing. Participating students receive credit for PGE 311 (Introduction to Numerical Methods), which is cross-listed with ME 318M and counts as a substitute for CE 311K and COE 311K. It also counts as a technical elective for CE majors and an engineering elective for EVE majors, and can be applied to the computational science and engineering certificate. Prerequisites for PGE 311 are PHY 303K and 103M, and credit/registration for Math 427J or 427K. If you do not have credit or registration for Math 427J/427K, please email Dr. Prodanović to discuss how to make up for it.
