Seidenberg School of Computer Science Faculty-Led Programs

Faculty-led courses offer a study abroad experience organized and led by Pace University faculty. Students pay Pace tuition in addition to the program fee and other expenses, dependent on the program.


The Design Factory

Selected Seidenberg students participate in unique 9-month field study programs abroad with the Design Factory, where students from different majors and universities around the world (including Pace) work together to solve a challenge posed by an industry sponsor. In recent years, Pace students who participated in the Design Factory program travelled to (1) Aalto University in Helsinki, Finland; and (2) Graz University of Technology's Institute of Innovation and Industrial Management, in Graz, Austria.
