International Exchange Programs

Why study abroad?

Today's engineers are often called on to solve problems with global impact. The College of Engineering has established exchange programs with top technical universities worldwide to expose students to engineering in other cultures.

English-language course offerings make study abroad accessible and programs that span in length from a few weeks to one year allow you to customize your experience.

Studying abroad can be a life changing experience. You'll be exposed to new ideas, new people and new experiences. And you'll develop some of the skills most valued by today's employers: independence, teamwork, leadership and adaptability.

How much will it cost?

In an exchange program, you pay University of Nevada, Reno tuition and fees, and are generally exempt from tuition at your host university. You may have to pay some fees at your host university for student services, housing or other campus services. Check with OISS and your host institution for more specific information about program fees.

You are also responsible for your own travel and living expenses while abroad. To help with the costs, the College of Engineering is offering $500 scholarships to eligible students participating in an exchange program.
