ISEN is committed to empowering future global leaders in sustainability and energy. To accomplish this goal, ISEN is pleased to offer a range of study abroad opportunities in collaboration with interdisciplinary partners from across Northwestern.

Immediately prior to the start of the Fall Quarter 2018, students will travel to Israel to explore transboundary water issues, ancient infrastructure, and modern emerging solutions through discussions with diverse water experts, explorations of technological innovation, and visits to major water utilities, infrastructure facilities, and research centers. In addition to visiting companies and research universities, participants will gain exposure to global internship, research, and job opportunities including those related to startups, water desalination, water reuse, and hyper-efficient precision agriculture systems.

This GET Water program is open to freshmen and sophomores from ALL undergraduate majors. Cross-school participation is encouraged. It is important to note that participants do not receive academic credit for this program.
