International Opportunities

Graduates from the College of Engineering will work with people from across the globe. A broader understanding of the world and the needs of cultural groups is critical to completing projects in engineering and computer science.

The College of Engineering proudly supports study abroad through a variety of innovative and exciting programs, including these faculty-led summer programs:

  • Engineering in Spain: Spend five weeks in Pamplona, Spain, learning the language, culture and sustainable technologies and energy. Open to all students to earn six credits of Spanish and three credits of Society, Technology, and the Environment, an approved social behavior elective at UA. The program includes a technical and cultural tours and excursions.
  • Engineering in France: Similar to Spain, students spend five weeks in Tours, France, learning the language, culture and sustainable technologies and energy.
  • Engineering in the European Alps: Spend five weeks in the Alps while learning about climate change and water resources while staying in an historic inn located in Innsbruck, Austria. Students earn eight natural science credits through the course Glaciology, Water Resources and Climate Change.
  • Chemical Engineering Summer Lab: Chemical engineering students can fulfill unit operations lab requirements in Vienna, Austria, or Copenhagen, Denmark.

Students can also spend a full academic term abroad. The College has exchange agreements with Polytechnic University of Turin in Italy, University College Dublin in Ireland and Budapest University of Technology in Hungary that offer transferable engineering courses in English.
