​Study Abroad & International Experiences

Our students learn about solar energy in Turkey, nanotechnology in Singapore, medical imaging in Germany, wastewater treatment in Australia, biofuels in Brazil, medical devices in China, and other real-world topics through more than 100 study abroad programs in more than 50 countries. Many of these programs are unique to WashU and offered exclusively for engineering students.

Our students also solve engineering problems while gaining valuable experience through student organizations that partner with developing communities. For example, students in the Washington University Guatemala Initiative repair medical equipment, such as broken ventilators, in Guatemala, and our Engineers Without Borders chapter regularly visits Mekelle, Ethiopia, to improve water storage and electrical systems at a school for the blind.

Engi​neering students can also gain a global perspective without traveling abroad. Many courses within the engineering curricula include topics relevant to worldwide audiences, such as global climate change. Engineering students can also participate in the university's Global Certificate program, an opportunity to develop global competence and learn practical skills through a diverse, interdisciplinary education.
