Study Abroad

Updated February 22, 2018

The Department of Computer Science and Engineering encourages CSE majors to take advantage of study and research opportunities through the Education Abroad Program (EAP) and Opportunities Abroad Program (OAP). EAP programs are offered at over 140 institutions in 34 countries.  Please visit the Study Abroad UC San Diego office for more information.  

Why study abroad?

  • The Student Perspective!
  • Take advantage of unique academic, experiential, and coursework opportunities.
  • Get new perspective on the discipline of engineering.
  • Expand your resume.

When should I study abroad?

All students should consult with their Undergraduate Advisor to discuss a timely completion of major requirements.  Most students study abroad during the spring or summer quarters, however we sometimes have students study abroad for one year!  We encourage students to start planning as early as possible, since most program applications require 1 year of planning.  Watch the First Steps video, and contact a Study Abroad Advisor!

Can I receive transfer credit towards my major?

Students may earn academic credit to satisfy major or minor requirements, if approved by the CSE Department.  Please see the CSE Petition Process.  

* If approved, each course must meet all of the following minimum criteria (once posted to your UCSD academic history) to receive the specified UCSD Equivalency credit:

  1. UC transferable
  2. Upper Division
  3. Course must be taken for a letter grade (may not be taken for P/NP)
  4. Must earn a C- or better 

 

If all the criteria above are met, send CSE a VAC message after the course is posted to your UCSD academic history so we can apply the stated UCSD Equivalency credit to your computer science and engineering major accordingly.

  • Previously petitioned courses listed below will need to be taken by the stated expiration date for UCSD CSE course equivalency credit. 
  • Expired courses and those not listed below will need to be petitioned for consideration of CSE major/course credit.
