Why Not Geaux?

Have you ever wanted to study engineering at one of the top universities in Germany while earning LSU credit? How about learning environmental engineering in one of the most sustainable countries in the world?

People say you learn the most outside of your comfort zone, and LSU Academic Programs Abroad gives students like you the opportunity to do so on a global scale. Whether you want to study abroad in Asia, Australia, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, or maybe right here in the United States, they have the perfect program for you.

One of the best ways to study abroad as an engineer is through the Global Engineering Education Exchange (Global E3). It is comprised of leading engineering universities from all over the world that host students interested in studying abroad for either a semester or a year. Through this program, students are able to gain invaluable international experience, while paying LSU tuition. The majority of Global E3 universities offer courses in English, so learning a new language is not necessary (but always encouraged). Some of the participating universities even offer supplemental internships after students’ time abroad. If you are interested in applying, the deadline is Feb. 24.

If you’d like to stay a bit closer to home, the National Student Exchange (NSE) could be the right fit for you. This exchange offers over 170 different colleges and universities to choose from in 48 states, 7 Canadian provinces, Puerto Rico, the US Virgin Islands, and Guam. This is a great option for students looking into graduate schools, as well. The deadline to apply for this program is Feb. 14.

No matter which program you choose, you are in for an unforgettable educational experience, increased self-awareness, and memories to last a lifetime. To get more information about studying abroad, visit the LSU Academic Programs Abroad office at 103 Hatcher Hall and speak with a peer advisor today.
