Field School Program in Peru

Field Trips in Peru


The Field Trip in Peru provides students the opportunity to acquire specific knowledge in the engineering fields where PUCP is involved and which are directed by some of our most prestigious faculty members. This context allows participants to have an enduring, rich and fruitful academic and personal experience. We are currently offering 3 different courses in 2015.

Biodiversity, Water Resources and Climate Change Impacts in the Tropical Andes of Peru

Sustainable Development

Fluvial Geomorphology, Precipitation and Drainage Patterns of the Upper Amazon System

Participating students will have the opportunity to live a unique and intensive field trip experience and have a direct approach to local people, with respect and openness to intercultural learning.

By going through each one of the stages, students will have expanded their knowledge of Peruvian history and culture, improved their ability to analyze social and environmental aspects.

The experience gained in one of these courses could be the basis for the development of future research topics at their universities


Spanish is not required, since most activities are conducted in English. However, it is advisable for students to have a basic knowledge of Spanish in order to facilitate a fluid interaction with the population.
