Program Notes
Program Description
Study mathematical modeling and computation science focusing on sustainable living in Melbourne, Australia. Australia is uniquely sensitive to sustainability concerns and Melbourne is a leading center of learning and industry. Students will enjoy the many advantages of summer in Melbourne, including visits to natural areas, athletic events, and seeing Australia's unique flora and fauna.

Based in Melbourne, you will interact with Australians as you study sustainability, modeling, and computation. You will learn about sustainability firsthand as you visit Australia's south coast and the Grampians National Park. In addition, we will visit CSIRO, Australia's science agency.

Students reside in dormitories at University College, part of the University of Melbourne, one of the world's great universities. Breakfast and dinner are provided.

Whether you are interested in modeling and computation, sustainability, the natural beauty of southeast Australia, or the wonderful charm of the Australian people, the Winter Session in Melbourne, Australia, is your chance to develop memories for a lifetime.

For more information about this program from the perspective of past participants, check out their UDAbroad blog posts.

The Program Fee includes housing in Uni Melbourne residence halls, all program-related excursions, some meals and international medical insurance.

The Program Fee does NOT include airfare to/from Australia, or airport transfers within the U.S. The program officially begins when students arrive in Melbourne. Students will receive detailed travel instructions after acceptance, explaining how and where to purchase their plane ticket. See the Cost section below for estimate airfare. For this program, students will be given recommended flight itineraries for traveling together. Those who arrive at the Melbourne airport at the appointed time will be able to take advantage of the group bus to their lodging, as for the return.. Students who opt to arrive at a different time are responsible for traveling to their lodging independently and at their expense as instructed by the faculty director.

Students who are U.S. citizens should also budget an estimated $20 to cover the cost of their ETA-Visa to enter Australia. Students who hold passports from other countries may have other visa requirements and/or additional expenses.
ACCESSIBILITY: Participants with disabilities should know that accessibility and accommodation in some program locations may differ from the United States. Transit systems and legacy building construction practices may not meet U.S. accessibility standards, and alternative access to public transportation, buildings, or public sites cannot be guaranteed. But UD students with disabilities are welcome and encouraged to study abroad. Review these questions with the Office of Disability Support Services to determine whether this program can meet your accommodation needs.
Program Courses
Students must enroll in all credit-bearing courses for a grade. Only the UNIV (zero credit) course may be taken pass/fail. Audit registration is not permitted on UD Travel Study. Please refer to the University Catalog to verify requirements and prerequisites
Honors credit may be available. Check with the faculty director and the Honors program for approval (check before departure).
All students must enroll in at least 6 credits, as well as the 0-credit UNIV course.
ELEG 467: Scientific Computing (3 credits)
Scientific computing covers modern computing techniques in numerical modeling, signal processing, and big data. Principles espoused in "software carpentry" are covered. Computational examples are given in Python. Students complete regular computational assignments.
MATH 467: Modeling of Sustainable Systems (3 credits)
The purpose of this course is to expose students to the mathematical study of natural and artificial systems from the perspective of sustainability. The content in this course will reinforce and build upon knowledge learned in courses on differential equations and linear algebra. Topics will include ecological systems, transportation systems and/or energy systems. Students will explore mathematical structures analytically and computationally.
UNIV 370-118: Study Abroad - Australia ELEG/MATH (0 credits) pass/fail
Students are asked to reflect upon changes in their knowledge, skills, and attitudes that occur due to their study abroad experience.
Satisfies the following requirements:
Discovery Learning
Requirements
Applicants should have a G.P.A. of at least 2.0 (on a 4.00 scale).

Meeting these minimum requirements does not guarantee acceptance, which is based on academic quality and demonstrated ability to contribute to the objectives of the program. Early application is encouraged.
For all participants, a formal application is necessary, including at least one recommendation. An interview may be conducted in person or by telephone.

A transcript is required from Non-UD applicants only. Non-UD students, please send a copy of your official transcript to: IGS, Clayton Hall, 100 David Hollowell Drive, Newark, DE 19716 USA.

Study abroad at the University of Delaware is highly competitive. Please review the study abroad acceptance process. If you are not selected for your first choice program, we encourage you to apply to another program.
