The exchange program at Technical University of Denmark will provide interested engineering students with the opportunity to build on their knowledge in the field of engineering and at the same time introduce them to new cultures and lifestyles. This study abroad program is currently being offered to engineering students. Participants will spend one semester or one year of study in Lyngby, Denmark at DTU. Students who have interest in the European cultures are suggested to apply for this program.
Language of Instruction: English and Danish.
What do I take?
Disciplines Available: Biotechnology, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Engineering, Designing and Innovation, Electrical Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Food and Nutrition, Mathematics, Mechanical Engineering, Physics, Sustainable Energy, and Wind Energy
Credit for courses taken at UMD exchange institutions will be accepted as transfer credit. Courses must be pre-approved by Education Abroad, the student’s academic advisor(s) and the student’s advising college(s). Courses must be taken for a letter grade and students must receive the equivalent grade of C- or better in order to receive credit towards their UMD academic record. The grades for transfer credit courses are not factored into their cumulative GPA and do not show up on their UMD transcript.
Where do I live?
For exchange students, DTU does not guarantee accommodation, however, they will do their utmost to find accommodation for all the students who apply within the deadline.
The tuition and fees noted above are charged directly to the student’s UMD financial account, which means that students can apply UMD scholarships, state and federal financial aid, and alternative loans towards the cost of the exchange. Please see the Funding Study Abroad webpage for more information and available scholarship opportunities.
Housing costs are paid directly to the host institution or on-site housing agency.
