What is IIE Global E³?
Global E³ is an exchange program for engineering students: a student can study abroad while continuing to pay tuition at home. With member universities in 23 countries, students at over 70 universities have the opportunity to study abroad. Global E³ exchanges about 250-300 students a year.
This is a great choice for students that want to study abroad, need to complete engineering courses while abroad, and are flexible with the destination that they go to. Global E³ is a unique program that provides UM engineering students with more choices to study abroad. Many of the member institutions in Global E³ are not open to the general UM study abroad population.
How Does Global E³ Work?
Top engineering students from Participating Institutions apply to study abroad for up to 1 year. There are several applications necessary to complete to be considered for this program. You will be working with a UM Study Abroad advisor to complete the necessary program requirements.
1. Must be an engineering major of at least sophomore standing with GPA above 3.0.
2. Complete both the IIE GE³ application
and UM Study Abroad application by the appropriate deadlines.
3. Be flexible with your location choices; IIE will allow you to prioritize three from the member universities above. Some partners require language proficiency.
4. Complete the partner university application by the appropriate deadline.
