International Programs

中国福彩网-电视直播Engineers, just like their employers, are operating worldwide. Most engineers who work for a global company will find themselves interacting across borders with colleagues from diverse backgrounds.

中国福彩网-电视直播In order to help students gain an international perspective early on, the College of Engineering has developed a number of international programs.

German and Engineering

Programs for Freshmen: In 2019, the College will conduct its 13th annual Calculus program in Karlsruhe, Germany. In the program, up to 24 students take Calculus IV, taught by two UK mathematics faculty members. In addition, students visit engineering companies in Germany and have opportunities to travel on weekends. Students will stay with host families in the city of Karlsruhe. Interested? E-mail Ben Vockery at Education Abroad: ben.vockery@uky.edu

Semester Exchange: The College of Engineering has established an exchange program with the University of Karlsruhe, Germany. This exchange allows our students to conduct research and study at the university for seven months from January to July. Credit for courses will be given through bypass exams taken after a student’s return to UK. To find out more, please e-mail Laurence Tuccori at the UK Education Abroad office.

Research Programs: Each summer our engineering students have the opportunity to participate in a Nanotechnology program at the Center for Nanonintegration in Duisburg-Essen/Germany (CENIDE). The University of Kentucky has a partnership with the University of Duisburg, which will accept two students a year for a research summer project. To find out more, please check out  and contact the UK Education Abroad Office in Bradley Hall.

Another option for undergraduates and graduate student to gain research experience in Germany is the German Academic Exchange Service’s (DAAD’s)  (RISE), which funds about 300 students a year to join Ph.D. candidates in Germany to help them with their dissertation research (). The application deadline for RISE is in January for the following summer.

Work in Germany (Co-op or Internship): 中国福彩网-电视直播Some of our engineering students find internships in Germany with engineering companies through  and their IAESTE program, a non-profit organization working to expand work abroad opportunities for college students. Please also check out Goin’ Global, which will is available in the 2016-17 Academic Year to all UK students through UK’s job system, .

Spring Semester at Turin Polytechnic, Italy

The University of Kentucky is one of the Southeastern Conference (SEC) engineering colleges that partners with the Politecnico di Tornio (PdT) in Torino, Italy. This exchange partnership allows UK engineering students to study at PdT and pay their tuition at the UK rate (Spring Semester only). The UK-PdT exchange is focused on Mechanical Engineering and Electrical Engineering majors, and UK students need to coordinate their courses with their UK advisor and the UK-IC exchange office at least nine months in advance of their Spring Semester at PdT. For more information see the link below.

To find out more, please e-mail Laurence Tuccori at the UK Education Abroad office.

Summer CUMT Mining Engineering Course

UK Mining Engineering students can take a summer course (typically from mid-June to mid-July: Mining Engineering Technical Elective, 3 credit hours) at China University of Mining and Technology (CUMT). UK students need to coordinate their Summer Semester plans with their UK advisor and the UK-IC Education Abroad office at least nine months in advance of their Summer Semester at CUMT. For more information see the link below.

Summer Experience in Renewable Energy in Pamplona Spain

中国福彩网-电视直播The College of Engineering at the University of Kentucky is pleased to partner with the Pamplona Learning Spanish Institute to present an education abroad opportunity this summer, a renewable energies course in Pamplona, Spain. The Navarre region of Spain generates 70 percent of its energy from renewable resources, so this course will provide a unique perspective on the local application of green energy resources. The course is lecture-based but includes site visits to various renewable energy installations.

Students participating in the program will receive four credit hours from UK in CME599 (credit as 599 from other departments may also be possible). For most UK majors, this will count as an Engineering Science Elective.

Study Abroad Program, INTI College, Malaysia

This program is designed for students early in their studies. Students have the opportunity to take math, physics and chemistry as well as Thermo I and other engineering classes at INTI College in Malaysia and receive UK credit for their work. Course offerings also include non-engineering classes, which may count towards USP credit at UK. The program starts in early January and ends in April of each year.

中国福彩网-电视直播Costs of living and tuition are relatively affordable at INTI. The campus is located outside of Kuala Lumpur and is very safe and international. All courses are taught in English.

More information on INTI College in Malaysia can be found at their .

Programs at the University of Nagoya/Japan

NUSIP: Nagoya Summer Program in Automotive Technology: Join NUSIP for six weeks and experience the full range of Japanese cultural life. Course-related excursions will provide you with an opportunity to discover Japanese culture and engineering. The program consists of seminars on the latest technology and tasks in Automobile engineering, an elementary Japanese language course and trips to an automobile industry factory and laboratory. The cost for this program is $1600, excluding airfare and meals. Housing, public transportation pass, social activities, course fees and excursions are included in the program fee. The application deadline is February 15 for the following summer. For additional details, visit .

NUPACE: Nagoya Semester and Year-long programs: NUPACE offers a unique and flexible curriculum consisting of Japanese language instruction, Japan area/intercultural studies and a wide range of courses in the student’s major field of study. Most classes are taught in English. Provided that students meet the minimum requirement of 12 credits per semester, they are free to design their own curriculum, balancing their interest in Japanese language and Japan area/intercultural studies with their desire to pursue their “major” or independent research. Students who are proficient in Japanese are eligible to register for any course offered to degree-seeking students at Nagoya University. Additional information is available at .
