Interested in Visiting?

The International Programs in Engineering (IPENG) regularly receives visitors to the Grainger College of Engineering and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign every year to network and build partnerships. IPENG strives to build visits for partners according to their interests, connecting them with their counterparts at Illinois, as well as developing sustainable collaborative relationships.

IPENG coordinates visits for exchange partners and research organizations. We ask that if you are interested in scheduling a visit with us that you complete our Visit Request Form at least one month prior to the day of the visit. Upon receiving the request, IPENG will send a follow-up email to confirm details and ensure you have a meaningful and productive visit.
