SAPIENS Program (ICAI) 2019-2020

SAPIENS (Study Abroad Program for International ENgineering Students)

This program was designed several years ago in collaboration with the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), and has grown over the years to also include courses from the University of Maryland-College Park (UMD), the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor (UMICH), Boston University (BU), Syracuse University (SU) and the University of Florida (UF). It is extremely STEM-compatible at the Sophomore level, and is becoming "Junior-friendly" in its Spring version..

The SAPIENS program is offered during the Fall, Spring and Summer terms.
For term dates, please see the academic calendar: Academic Calendar (ICAI)
