About the Program
Set yourself apart from the competition by taking engineering courses abroad. Paris is an ideal destination for engineering majors, a city where many scientists and mathematicians have made significant contributions to the field. You’ll experience Paris as a learning lab through site visits and lectures which complement your classroom curriculum. Additional elective courses focus on aspects of French culture and may fulfill a humanities or social science requirement. While French language skills are not required for the program, you’ll likely acquire basic French and use it to navigate this historic city.
