Exchange Programs for Undergraduate Students

The School of Engineering seeks to provide the best educational experiences, both in Brooklyn and beyond, for its undergraduate students. As a part of this effort, four exchange programs have been established to allow School of Engineering students to take their education to the global level. Students will work with their academic adviser prior to departure to develop a course plan and determine applicably of courses towards their degree.

All courses at the participating schools are taught in English. Students participating in the semester abroad programs through these universities will pay New York University tuition and will be responsible for their own travel, housing and other cost-of-living expenses.

Students interested in any of these semester abroad exchange programs must have completed at least 32 credits at the School of Engineering with a cumulative GPA of at least 3.2. Interested students must complete the application form and send it to the Office of Undergraduate Academics no later than four months before the start of the semester that they wish to study abroad.

Program Opportunities

Exchange Program with Ecole Centrale Paris (France)

Since its foundation in 1829, the École Centrale Paris has followed the same calling: training engineers capable of meeting the greatest challenges of their era. Centrale seeks to create “three- dimensional” engineers: engineers that are high-level scientific and technical generalists, experts in initiating and piloting innovative projects and with a strong international culture. Students who study at Centrale will have the opportunity to participate in any of their course offerings.

Exchange Program and Summer Research Program with The Felix Klein Center for Mathematics, University of Kaiserslautern (Germany)

Opened in 2008, the Felix Klein Center for Mathematics provides an exceptional opportunity to excel in interdisciplinary research and mathematical transfer of knowledge to industry and society. The Center offers a combination of the widely recognized and outstanding teaching and research programs of the Department of Mathematics of the University of Kaiserslautern, and the open-to-the-world and practically oriented projects of the Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Mathematics.

In addition to a semester abroad program, the University of Kaiserslautern offers a summer research program abroad. The purpose of this program is to allow selected qualified students to conduct scholarly research at the host institution. Students will be provided room and board as a part of the summer research exchange program.
