Exchange programs

Technical exchange programs

The College of Science and Engineering has made special arrangements for students to earn technical credits at top engineering universities abroad.

Credit transfer is easy, and the cost is lower than similar semester programs.

CSE exchanges

Additional exchange programs abroad are open to all University of Minnesota students. Use the program search feature on the University Learning Abroad Center website and select the program type “exchange” to find a program that's a good fit for you.

You will work with CSE on program selection and the nomination process to be an exchange student, and you'll work closely with your department on course selection.

Looking for semester options beyond exchange? CSE students have studied at top schools across the globe through traditional study abroad programs. There are many English-speaking options in Ireland, the United Kingdom, New Zealand, Australia, and South Africa.
