Yesterday, we had the chance to visit SUPSI and USI, two of the most unique and neat instructions that we’ve seen so far on this trip. SUPSI is a school of ¬†applied science while USI, a university, has the closest feel to small private college in the states. Both provided great opportunities for interaction, with SUPSI focused on researchers and USI on teaching and students. When the Dean asked at our debriefing session which, of the places that we’d visited, we would choose to study at or teach at, answers were amazingly split between ETH, SUPSI, and USI. Maybe we just have a thing for acroynms?!

This morning, though, we’re off to MILANO! We’re traveling with faculty members from Virginia Tech as well, so I’m really looking forward to some great conversations with administrators and faculty from PoliMi.
