“Promoting Study Abroad in Geophysics: Applying Intelligent Systems to Geoscience Problems (IS-GEO)”

The University of Texas at Austin and Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México designed a new and innovative exchange program model that aims to address one of the key challenges to student mobility: attracting STEM students to study abroad opportunities. The Intelligent Systems to Geoscience Problems (IS-GEO) project will increase the number of students engaged in joint IS-GEO research by initiating cross-border interdisciplinary collaborations between the U.S. and Mexico. Students will participate in a course that will provide a model for other STEM departments, helping other institutions overcome barriers for incorporating international exchange into existing curricula.
