Engineering Globalization

In an increasingly globalized world, we're making an extreme effort to provide Waterloo Engineering students and faculty the best opportunities to connect with our international partners.

Through international exchange, co-op terms abroad and new dual degree graduate programs, the International Studies in Engineering Option, or Waterloo's Global Experience Certificate, we're providing students the ability to expand their knowledge and network while fulfilling their degree requirements. 

Whether you are attending the University of Waterloo as a visitor, on exchange, or enrolled as a degree seeking student, please share your favourite places in the Waterloo Region by completing a short survey. It is our hope that your answers to the questions in the survey will help others become more acquainted with all Waterloo has to offer.

Map of International Exchange Partners 

We partner with more than 80 universities to offer the most rewarding exchange opportunities for engineering students. Visit the Waterloo International Agreements site for information about Student Mobility (exchange) opportunities.
