College of Engineering Study Abroad
Students talk about their Engineering Study Abroad experiences.
Study Abroad for Engineers
That’s the word BU Engineering students use most to describe themselves after returning from a semester studying abroad. It’s an eye-opener to see the world in whole new light, explore another culture and learn more about yourself than you thought you could.
Boston University was among the first to offer study abroad programs just for engineering students. You can spend the second semester of your sophomore year taking the same engineering courses you would at BU, all taught in English. You can spend a semester in historic Dresden, Germany; in one of the world’s true high-tech centers, Tel Aviv, Israel; in the exciting and captivating city of Grenoble, France; or in Madrid, Spain, one of the world’s most dynamic metropolises.
In addition to engineering courses, you take an introductory course in the local language so you can move easily through the culture. There’s time built into the program so you can travel around the region, interact with the people and see the world from a new perspective.
If you're interested in another part of the world, and willing to do a bit of academic planning, juniors may take part in direct-enroll engineering programs (in English) at Universities in Auckland, New Zealand; Dublin, Ireland; Sydney, Australia; or Singapore. All our international programs give you the opportunity to explore engineering on a global scale.
BU has one of the nation's largest study-abroad programs with opportunities around the world. Click here to find out more.
