Academic Year & Semester Programs

Two women riding camels

Most of these programs offer study as an exchange student at a partner institution for a semester or an academic year. These universities offer engineering courses in English that UW students can take; engineering departments can award UW credit for courses taken abroad. Research internships may also be available on some programs.

Academic year programs are best suited for students in their junior and senior years, though some are open to sophomores and graduate students. In most cases, participants pay an exchange fee equal to UW tuition and UW financial aid will apply.

If you are interested in participating in an engineering exchange program during the academic year, review the online course catalogs for the universities that most interest you. Compare the courses available to exchange students with the credits you need to fulfill for your degree.
