International Student Foreign Exchange Program
The Albert Nerken School of Engineering began partnering with international institutions in the early 2000s to offer undergraduate students the opportunity to come to Cooper for a semester or year foreign exchange. Exchange students spend one semester (September-December or January-May) or one year (September-May) studying a variety of courses ranging from the four core majors in the School of Engineering (civil, chemical, electrical and mechanical) to various applicable courses in the School of Art or the School of Architecture.
Our current partner institutions are:
- University of Iceland, Rekyjavik, Iceland
- Universidad de Burgos, Burgos, Spain
- Universidad Pontificia Comillas, Madrid, Spain
- Technische Universität Dresden, Dresden, Germany
- Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences, Karlsruhe, Germany

In order to apply for our foreign exchange program you must first consult with your universities’ international programs coordinator.
