Study Abroad for Engineering Students

The College of Engineering offers a number of study abroad opportunities for engineering undergraduates. Engineering students can study abroad in the second semester of the sophomore year in Dresden, Germany; Tel Aviv, Israel; Grenoble, France; and Madrid, Spain. These programs are structured to replicate the second semester of the sophomore year at Boston University. All majors can participate.

There is no prior language requirement. At all sites, students will study the language of the host country and take a cultural immersion course, which may include field trips to research institutions, technical museums, and companies. Engineering students take three of the following four technical courses: CAS MA 226 Differential Equations, CAS PY 313 Modern Physics, ENG BE 209 Principles of Molecular Cell Biology and Biotechnology, and ENG EK 307 Electric Circuits. These courses are all taught in English and appear on the student’s transcript as Boston University courses. Approximately 20 percent of College of Engineering students study in one of these programs each year. For more information, please contact the Study Abroad Office.
