Study Abroad and International Exchanges

Engineering today is a global profession. Participating in a study abroad experience, whether over the summer or for a longer period, will allow you to see the world from an entirely new perspective and help you develop new skills, independence and self-confidence.

CSEE students can pursue educational opportunities in other countries while maintaining their course of study and timeline to graduation. Participants in Study Abroad and International Programs may earn credits towards their UB degree while paying regular UB tuition. Courses are taught in English by university faculty. However, since the civil engineering curriculum is relatively rigid, make sure you plan well in advance to minimize the impact on your courses at UB. In addition, check to see if the grades you receive abroad will transfer to UB.

A dual diploma program is an undergraduate program for Turkish students in which the participants spend half of their education at a campus of the State University of New York (SUNY) and half at a Turkish university. The University at Buffalo (UB) partnered with Istanbul Technical University (ITU) in 2003 to implement a dual diploma program.
