Engineering Global Tracks
While engineering students are encouraged to explore all the university’s Arizona Abroad offerings, the following Global Track programs are tailored specifically for you. These locations host courses that satisfy requirements for an engineering major or minor.
“I studied in Madrid at the Institute for American Universities, where I lived with a host family in the heart of the city. While abroad, I got to explore 8 new countries and spend time in cities all over Spain, from Bilbao and San Sebastian to Sevilla and Cordoba.”Celeste Cortez, Electrical & Computer Engineering | Program: Madrid, Spain
“I worked on designing/fabricating a magnetically actuated doublet lens objective for endoscopic purposes on an imaging fiber. This program allowed me to gain hands on experience in optical designing! I was also able to travel to other countries during my stay which was a very rewarding experience.”Eliana Stilson, Optical Sciences & Engineering | Program: Stuttgart, Germany
“Immersing myself in Korean culture was a revolutionary experience. I encountered a wide variety of traditional and modern local activities, and my interactions with Koreans and other study abroad students were life changing. It forced me to look at my life as an American from other perspectives.”Rachel Whitaker, Electrical & Computer Engineering | Program: Seoul, South Korea
“This past June, I had the incredible opportunity to study in Spain and take six credits of Spanish classes to finish off my minor! The location was perfect for weekend trips around Spain, only 20 minutes from Madrid, and I was even able to go to Rome and Venice in Italy.”Yixel Quevedo, Environmental Engineering | Program: Alcala de Henares, Spain
“I’m working in chemistry lab for the Physik Institute fabricating Graphene for medical device electrodes. We have encountered so many new and welcoming people here from the start. I would say even my perspective of the engineering world and my future options is broadened.”Mirina Enderlin, Chemical Engineering | Program: Munich, Germany
“This summer was truly a once in a lifetime opportunity. I was able to explore multiple new countries, take a couple classes, and make incredible memories. I would highly recommend the summer abroad program for anyone who thinks they can’t make a semester work!”Tessa Baldwin, Civil Engineering | Program: Barcelona, Spain
“Coming to Australia, I thought I would leave with a lot of Australian friends. What surprised me most about the study abroad experience was the diversity of countries that people came from at this school. Exploring Australia with fellow international students was a great experience!”Leif Nelson-Melby, Mechanical Engineering | Program: Sydney, Australia
“Spending one month studying abroad in Spain was an incredibly rewarding and exciting opportunity to practice Spanish in a new environment. The program made it easy to immerse myself in the culture and explore Spain. I am glad to have had this opportunity!”Henry Calkins, Mechanical Engineering | Program: Alcala de Henares, Spain
