Facts and Figures
Considering proposing a new exchange partner?
See below for our criteria and process to do so.
Criteria for Establishing New Exchange Partner
Verify school/location does not already exist.
Check the Exchange Partner list.
Is this a school we should consider being affiliated with? Consider the reputation of the school and the rankings of their engineering departments?
How many partners do we currently have in the same country, region, city? Do we need another?
Consider current faculty involvement with school. Is there any existing formal relationship/agreement?
What is the potential interest of UIUC students? Are courses taught in English?
Will program be open to all engineering areas/departments?
Does the program benefit UIUC Grainger College of Engineering and our students?
Process to Establish a New Exchange Partner
Submit an email proposal that includes the above information to the Director of International Programs in Engineering.
Director will consider proposal and follow-up with a questionnaire requesting specific details about the proposed partner university.
If proposal is accepted, the Director will initiate the process to establish an exchange agreement. Faculty will be consulted during agreement negotiations.
Once the agreement is final, IPENG will create a program application in My Study Abroad and recruitment materials for your students.
