About

College of Science & Engineering exchange programs offers students the opportunity to take engineering and science courses taught in English at science and engineering universities abroad.

This program is coordinated by the College of Science & Engineering. You must apply for the program through the College of Science & Engineering.

You receive transfer credit for the courses you take. Your grades do not factor into your University of Minnesota GPA. Consult the Learning Abroad Center's Academic Policies for more information.

Application Deadline

Open to sophomores, juniors, and seniors with a 2.8 GPA. Application deadline mid-March for academic year/fall semester; mid-October for spring semester. You must apply through the College of Science & Engineering.

Academics

Study at the National University of Singapore and enroll in English-taught engineering coursework. Courses are offered across many engineering disciplines. Visiting students are required to take 70% of their credits within engineering departments.

After you've chosen a program and identified the courses you want to take, departmental and college advisers can evaluate whether or not the course work can be used toward your major or to meet other requirements.

It's important to be somewhat flexible in planning your courses. Sometimes course information isn't immediately available, so you may need to correspond directly with the host university.
