Study Abroad

Biomedical engineers work in an international community. To make the greatest impact in this global environment, the Cockrell School of Engineering offers many study abroad opportunities designed to give engineering students the skills necessary to create partnerships abroad.

Short-term Summer Programs

The Maymester is a 4-week term between the spring and summer; the courses are offered in the spring course schedule and tuition is charged as a part of spring flat-rate tuition. This allows students to study abroad with a UT Austin professor, take a UT Austin course that counts toward their degree, and return in time for second term summer session.
