Dubai was the first trip of its kind for a dozen students at Rochester Institute of Technology. They didn't know each other, came from a variety of disciplines—photography, industrial design, biochemistry, engineering, industrial and systems engineering, information security and forensics—and spent 12 days in the United Arab Emirates in solidarity to work on three projects, including one with students at the American University of Sharjah.
The outcome is an exhibition, Dubai & Beyond: Collaborative Study Abroad Experience, which was on view at the Sunken Gallery, second floor in The Wallace Center at RIT. University News Services caught up with group members during the closing reception on May 6, 2014.
Professor Roberley Bell and Assistant Professor Meredith Davenport from the School of Photographic Arts and Sciences at RIT's College of Imaging Arts and Sciences led the class trip in January.
