RSAP is excited to announce a new twist on its South Africa track.  Students will get to experience a 13-day international travel experience in Johannesburg, Pretoria, the Kruger National Park region, and Cape Town. A variety of engineering company visits, university visits, and cultural experiences will be included at each stage of travel.  The group will be accompanied by a guide familiar with the region as well as Virginia Tech engineering faculty members to maximize students' experiential learning in cultural and engineering contexts.

Tentative Itinerary (Note: modifications will continue to be made)
