The College of Engineering offers many exciting international opportunities for students through our exchange and faculty-led programs, and Engineers Without Borders. Learning about a different culture, building a worldwide network of contacts, and learning a new language and skillset, are just a few of the advantages of traveling overseas. An added bonus of a global engineering experience is it demonstrates to a potential employer your ability to work in multicultural teams, and could make the difference between you and another engineering graduate aiming for a similar job.

Exchange program students

Exchange Programs - Exchange programs offer semester-long agreements that are established between the host university and the College of Engineering. Our students study at each university specified below, while Auburn Engineering hosts students from the visiting country; this forms an educational exchange agreement between the two universities.

Faculty Led Program with Students

Faculty-Led Programs - Faculty-led programs last approximately four weeks and are led by Auburn University faculty members. If you choose this option, you can expect to travel to a host university and attend seminars and short courses offered by Auburn engineering faculty. Course work for engineering credit can involve lectures, labs, research projects, site trips, and company visits.

Engineers without Borders working

Engineers Without Borders - This non-credit service learning program allows students to engage in public service and make a difference in developing countries. Individuals must be a member of Engineers Without Borders student chapter and must participate in a planning meeting prior to being selected on the travel team. This is a great opportunity for students to apply their engineering skills toward improving the lives of people worldwide.
