Engineering Student Exchanges

You are here

Engineering-specific student exchanges are initiated by CU engineering faculty and staff or by engineering faculty and staff from an international university that want to establish a partnership between the two universities.

These exchanges allow CU engineering students to study at partner universities while engineering students from those universities take classes at CU-Boulder. This is an opportunity to participate in an engineering-focused study abroad program. Engineering students who wish to participate in these programs need to complete the application process through the Study Abroad office.

Exchange Partnerships

Engineering Student Exchange partnerships are currently established with the following institutions:

  • Ecole Speciale des Travaux Publics (ESTP) in Paris, France (architectural, civil, and mechanical engineering majors)
    CU faculty contact: Franck Vernerey, franck.vernerey@colorado.edu, 303-492-7165
  • University of Newcastle in the UK
    (civil engineering majors)
    CU contact: Engineering Dean's Office, 303-492-5071
  • Technical University of Darmstadt in Germany (TU Darmstadt)  
    (all engineering majors)
    CU faculty contact: Amer Diwan, diwan@colorado.edu, 303-492-5172
  • TU Darmstadt (Jeppesen Scholarship)  
    (master's students in aerospace, computer science, and mechanical engineering)
    CU contact: Engineering Dean's Office, 303-492-5071
  • Universidad Catolica de Chile (Catholic University of Chile) in Santiago, Chile
    (civil engineering majors)
    CU faculty contact: Keith Molenaar, keith.molenaar@colorado.edu, 303-735-4276
  • University College Dublin, Ireland (NEW!)
    (all engineering majors)
    CU contact: Engineering Dean's Office, 303-492-5071
  • University of Tokushima in Japan
    (all engineering majors-research internship only)
    CU faculty contact: Frank Barnes, frank.barnes@colorado.edu, 303-492-8225

Exchange Partner Summer Session Opportunities

  • Ecole Speciale des Travaux Publics (ESTP) along with Ecole d'Ingenieurs (EPF) in Paris, France, sponsors a summer session at a special tuition price for its American university partners. Students can study French language and culture, along with technical French, for 2, 4, 6, or 8 weeks in Paris. This is a great opportunity for students in the International Engineering Program or Engineers Without Borders-USA to go to France and perfect their French to prepare them for other international opportunities in the future. For more information, visit http://www.epf.fr or contact the Engineering Dean's Office.
  • Technical University (TU) Darmstadt in Germany also sponsors a summer session (Summer School for North America) for its American university partners. Students can take German language and culture classes, and some software classes, from mid-June to mid-July. They also can register for an optional internship for an additional stay. For more information, visit http://www.spz.tu-darmstadt.de or contact the Engineering Dean's Office.
