  6. GE3 – Global E³ is an exchange program for engineering students: a student can study abroad while continuing to pay tuition at home. With member universities in over 20 countries, students at over 70 universities have the opportunity to study abroad. Global E³ exchanges about 250-300 students a year.Students are nominated by their home institution and receive credit at home for academic work completed abroad. They study overseas in a member institution for one or two semesters, typically in their junior year.

Choosing your host university

In order to decide which university is the right choice for you, Technion International recommends checking the following information:

  1. Semester dates – which semester is most suitable for your travels, taking your studies and the Technion semester dates into consideration
  2. Course catalog – does the university you are interested in offer courses that are relevant to your degree?
  3. Cost of living – will you be able to afford the cost of living in city where the host university is based?

In order to find this information, Technion International recommends going to the host university’s international office’s website and more specifically search for the incoming exchange website.

Tales from Abroad

Tales from Abroad Studying abroad provides a double benefit for students: in addition to the academic benefits of a study experience at a university abroad and strengthening language skills, students experience tremendous personal growth. We encourage our out-bound students participating on exchange programs to share with us their experience – for the benefit of other Technionites thinking about applying for an exchange program abroad.

First in GIST – My Amazing South Korean Experience

Tales from abroad 1Written by: Shereen Sirhan, Student at the Faculty of Industrial Engineering and Management “I enjoyed every minute of my stay in Gwangju: I learned many new practical skills in the laboratory, and gained more academic experience and proficiencies. I met new people, enjoyed interacting with them, discussed different issues and learned a lot from our similarities and differences. The internship was very useful for me on many levels. Therefore, I strongly recommend other students to try this experience, and hope they will enjoy and learn as much as I did.” Continue reading…
