Anything is possible

It's true that the degree plan for materials science and biomedical engineering is intense, but it is possible to fit in a study abroad or National Student Exchange semester with some careful planning. If you know this is something you would like to pursue, please contact the department so you can get that process started. The sooner you start planning, the better!

Best of both worlds

If international travel is not your interest, you don’t have to cross the ocean to have enriching cultural and academic opportunities. UW-Eau Claire is among 200 universities that participate in the National Student Exchange Program (NSE). This unique exchange program allows Blugolds to study for a semester at another university while still paying UWEC tuition. Locations are available in 49 states, pretty much a guarantee that there will be a match for your interests and academic needs.
