Study Abroad

International Programs for Engineers

International Programs offered by the College of Engineering feature courses taught by Notre Dame faculty, so you can enjoy time abroad and still graduate in four years.

Applications will be accepted until November 1, 2023.

Most engineering students choose to go abroad the summer after their first or second year (leaving later years open for internships). Semester-long programs offered by Notre Dame International also are options for engineering students.
