ERASMUS & Non-EU Exchange
Every year, more than 20% of students from UCD Engineering avail of the opportunity to study for a semester in one of our partner schools in Asia, Australia, Europe and the US.
The school has a strong and well-established reputation internationally. The programme has been very active at the international level, with an extensive Erasmus and International network of strong schools and regular visiting lecturers, critics and external examiners.
>In UCD Engineering Stage 3 students have the opportunity to study abroad at another Global University where UCD has an Erasmus or Exchange agreement. This provides students with an invaluable opportunity to experience engineering in a variety of cultural contexts.
Qualifying Criteria for Study Abroad
Interested students must hold a minimum GPA of 3.08, and for core modules, no grade less than a C- at any stage. If a grade D+ or less applies, then a GPA greater than 3.68 is required at all stages. All qualifying students are subject to final approval by Engineering Programme Board Student Applications Committee (EPBSAC).
Students should speak with UCD Global in the first instance who can advise on the various study abroad opportunities; where past engineering students have studied and the application process and deadlines.
Students should speak with their Academic Exchange Coordinator for advice on module mapping only after the student has researched what courses to take at the host institution. They are;
- Biomedical Engineering – Dr Donal Holland
- Biosystems & Food Engineering – Professor Colm O’Donnell
- Chemical & Bioprocess Engineering – Dr Ioscani Jimenez Del Val
- Civil Engineering – Dr Daniel McCrum
- Electrical & Electronic Engineering – Dr Nan Zhao
- Mechanical & Materials Engineering - Dr Donal Finn
