  • Study for 1-2 semesters at prominent chemical engineering departments in many parts of the world, including Europe, Asia or Australia
  • Participate in 5-week summer program course in Oviedo, Spain (from late May to late June)
  • Gain international work experience with a global corporation in conjunction with an academic exchange
