Summer & Early Fall Programs
Summer and early fall programs let students stay on track with engineering course plans during the academic year. But they do typically require a program fee to cover tuition. Summer financial aid may be available to offset costs.
Note: If you plan to graduate in spring and would still like to participate in a summer or early fall program, there are additional steps you need to take. Contact Mike Engh for more information.
UW Faculty-Led Programs
UW faculty teach engineering courses as part of study abroad programs each year during summer and early fall terms. These programs are typically 3 to 4 weeks long, and UW students can earn up to 6 credits for their work during these course. Faculty-led programs use the program location to help students learn intensively about the course topic.

UW Partner Programs
Partner programs are approved by UW but administered by partner universities abroad. Programs range from 4 to 12 weeks, and regular UW credit is awarded for course and research work. Most affiliated programs in engineering are taught in English so proficiency in the local language is usually not required.
