Tips for Engineering Abroad

As an Engineering student you CAN learn abroad if you start planning early. Complete Learning Abroad 101, connect with your academic advisor, and speak to a Learning Abroad coordinator during your freshman year.

Most upper-division courses in Engineering must be taken on campus, so plan on learning abroad during the summer or before your junior year.

Exchange programs are great because they cost the same as tuition at the U and offer courses that let you stay on track to graduate.

Exchange Programs

The University of Utah collaborates with over 30 universities worldwide to allow students to enroll abroad for a semester or academic year and choose from a variety of programs of study.
