Study Abroad

Study abroad is strongly encouraged and generally does not delay students' graduation since they will be taking engineering classes abroad.  26% of KU students studied abroad in 2013-2014 (http://studyabroad.ku.edu/statistics).  KU ranks 26th out of all public US universities in the number of students who complete a study abroad program before graduation.  Refer to the Study Abroad site for further information.  Professor Sorem is the ME advisor for study abroad.
