Each year, about 20 percent of our engineering students study overseas in their junior year at such locations as the University of Nottingham in the United Kingdom and the University of Queensland in Australia.
For students unable to spend a full semester or year abroad, Bucknell offers a three-week program titled Engineering in a Global and Societal context. The program has been taught in England, Argentina, Western Europe, Scandinavia and Brazil.
