Students interested in study-abroad programs should see the information provided at their home institutions. The best time to study abroad is during the sophomore year, since the basic engineering courses required during the sophomore year are offered at most universities with an engineering program. Summers are also a good time to study abroad. Please meet with your BME advisor as early as possible to plan and stay on track for graduation.
