The Path Across the SEAS (“PATS”), will be an expanded international program for School of Engineering and Applied Science students and faculty to engage with the Panama Canal Authority (ACP),and universities in Panama. The project expects to achieve several goals:
- to promote educational and research collaboration, especially in STEM fields, with key international partners in Panama;
- to enable visiting scholars to experience the U.Va. community first hand and cultivate new partnerships; and
- to elevate the SEAS student experience to a new height–an international engineering experience with a massive, urgent infrastructure project unfolding in real time.
