Study Abroad

Getting Started

As an engineering student, it can be challenging to study abroad.  However, with proper planning and foresight, RIT makes it possible for you to have a study abroad experience and continue taking engineering courses.  Get started by creating a profile and search programs on the Compass .  Use your RIT DCE and password to sign in.  To assist you with the selection process, KGCOE has compiled a list of universities abroad that have comparable courses to your engineering curriculum.

Once you’ve narrowed down the choices to two or three, make an appointment with a Study Abroad Advisor by going to their office, emailing goabroad@rit.edu or by calling 585-475-4466.

Deadlines for spring semester study usually falls in October and for fall semester applications are due in March.  Make sure you understand the timeline for your application to be submitted by verifying with the Study Abroad office.

The following courses have been evaluated by our faculty and are considered comparable to RIT courses.  NOTE: General Education coursework is not listed below, and should be incorporated into your semester abroad to remain full time.  You must get preapproval for the courses you wish to take by filling out the Course Pre-Approval Form.

You must receive a C or better in the class for the credit to be awarded.  Courses abroad often have different credit structures.  Don’t let this deter you; we will articulate the international course to our credit system.

 

 

Summer in Rennes, France

Tentative dates May 29-June 29, 2015

Faculty Engineering Led Program by Dr. Matthew Marshall

Courses taught:

  • Engineering Economy (ISEE 345) 3 Credits (required for ISEE students, free elective or Professional Elective for others depending on discipline)
  • French language taught to your level, 3 Credits (Prerequisite: must have 4 years HS French or College French 1 here at RIT) Counts as a Global perspective or French Language Immersion
  • French culture class can count as a GE foundation, free elective or may count toward the French immersion as a substitute of a French language course upon approval from the ML faculty advisor
    • The ML Immersions allow students to study the language and culture of one particular country or area. Students will choose three language courses in the target language (ASL, Arabic, Chinese, French, Italian, German, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, or Spanish). If necessary, students may receive approval from the ML faculty advisor to substitute one of the three language courses with a culture course of the target culture. Approvals for substitution of a language with a culture course are granted only primarily in cases preventing timely graduation for students who begin their modern language study with Advanced I or above. Dr. Philippe Chavasse, Associate Professor of French, French Section Head pxcgsl@rit.edu Department of Modern Languages and Cultures College of Liberal Arts Rochester Institute of Technology, (585) 475-3156, Office # 01-3233

Fly to Paris, France and spend a month in Rennes, France and live on the INSA campus. Spend three nights in Paris at the end of the trip!

Fixed cost: RIT tuition for just 1 -3credit class! (receive 9 credits!) Program fee: about $1200 includes 2 French classes (language and culture), transportation to/from Paris to Rennes, tours in Rennes and Paris, 2 group dinners, hotel in Paris, travel insurance Housing- Free on the INSA campus

Variable costs: Estimated airfare: about $1200 Additional spending money: about $500 Money for meals: about $850 Contact Karen Hirst in 9-2203 kpheen@rit.edu. We need to have approximately 10 students committed to this summer and will make a decision by the end of January 2015. If you are interested in going and have not taken French I, please considering doing so this fall in preparation for this study abroad opportunity.
