Why study Civil Engineering abroad?

"As a Civil Engineering student studying abroad, you will gain exposure to different modes of problem solving, leading toward different approaches to the design and implementation of civil engineering projects. In light of the increasing globalization of engineering practice, this acquired knowledge will likely be beneficial in your future engineering career. You will see the significance of US building codes and how these are implemented in other countries, as well as how the US adopts sections of engineering building codes from other countries. EAP programs often have more academic support staff to assist engineering professors with computing, wet/dry, and field labs, which leads toward more meaningful laboratory experiences. Not only will EAP be one of the most memorable times in your life, the international experience will open a world of engineering opportunities in your future."

Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering

Making EAP Fit

Although the schedule of a Civil Engineering (CE) student is heavily impacted, students still have the opportunity to study abroad. Attempt to fulfill a portion of your specialization in Asia! Or fulfill basic math and Science courses in Europe... or vice versa! With proper planning, CE students can fulfill degree requirements and gain a unique international experience!


Strategies for Civil Engineering

Note: These are only a few strategies that demonstrate how a student can study abroad and graduate within 4 years. There are many EAP programs that can be substituted into the same strategies. DO NOT LET THESE EXAMPLES LIMIT YOU. Please consult the EAP Program Search for more options.
