Contrary to popular belief, engineering students can study abroad—it just requires a little planning!
Engineering students may study abroad in their sophomore year, junior year, first semester of senior year, or during the summer. Because of the academic requirements, it is suggested that the planning process for study abroad should begin early—even as soon as their first year.
