Undergraduate International Exchange
Studying abroad can expand students’ cultural horizons and offer a new educational and global perspective.
Rensselaer, therefore, offers a wide variety of exchange and/or study-abroad programs to undergraduate students. We encourage IT students to take advantage of these opportunities.
Because of the interdisciplinary nature of the Information Technology and Web Science degree, ITWS undergraduates may be involved in any one of the exchange and study abroad programs listed below. Students should work closely with their ITWS academic advisors to ensure appropriate course selection and timely completion of the degree.
Most exchange programs are intended for students in their junior year. Students apply to participate in these programs during the second semester of their sophomore year. Serious consideration for these programs generally requires that students achieve and maintain a GPA of 3.0 or better.
Study-abroad programs with a number of established colleges and universities throughout Europe, as well as with a limited number of Asian and Australian institutions, are available. Participation in these programs is usually for one year. However, some one-semester arrangements are possible.
Some programs give priority to specific majors, and some institutions require foreign language proficiency.
