Bioengineering

Bioengineering students typically study abroad in the fall or spring of their junior year through several of our exchange partners or the Clark in Madrid program.  Depending on your bioengineering track, some programs may be a better fit than others. Those in the Pre-Health track can generally choose any of the below programs.

You can view study abroad courses that have been evaluated previously by visiting the Bioengineering Course Evaluation Spreadsheet and our ILP Online Database.
