Engineering students can study abroad too!
Syracuse Abroad and the College of Engineering & Computer Science have specially designed a fall-only program in Strasbourg, France for first semester, second year students in engineering and computer science programs to stay on track to graduate.
Designed for students in:
- Aerospace Engineering
- Bio Engineering
- Civil Engineering
- Computer Science
- Environmental Engineering
- Mechanical Engineering
Courses are taught in English at the Syracuse Strasbourg Center and at INSA Institute Strasbourg. INSA is France’s largest engineering university, with six campuses around the country. Students may also register for non-engineering courses if space in their schedule allows, including 1-credit community internships.
During the semester, you’ll live with French host families and have access to all of the activities arranged by the staff at the Syracuse Strasbourg Center. Living with a host family allows you to use the French you’ve learned in class and develop insights into French culture and daily life!
Requirements: Minimum GPA: 3.0; Students with a GPA between 2.5 and 3.0 can petition the Syracuse University College of Engineering and Computer Science to apply. There is no language prerequisite, however, all students must take a French language course.

“Taking classes at INSA allowed me to regularly be in the same building as French engineering students and occasionally work with them. In one class, we had a few lectures where each SU undergraduate was partnered with an INSA graduate student to solve problem sets.”
