It's true that the degree plan for materials science and 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
