Study Abroad Programs
Hajim School students can participate in study abroad programs in 19 countries. Claire Ramming, shown at left, who graduated with a BS in electrical and computer engineering in 2013, studied at the University of Auckland in 2012.
Students who want to take engineering and computer science classes as part of their study abroad experience should pay particular attention to the list below. These are UR-affiliated study abroad programs that specifically offer engineering and science classes to study abroad students. "Course equivalents" indicate where Hajim School students have previously taken courses that were credited as being equivalent to the Rochester courses listed. (This list is not all-inclusive and is updated regularly.)
For the most current list of courses that Hajim School students can take overseas and receive UR course equivalency credit, download these PDF documents for classes sorted by major and by country.
