In today's world, there is a growing demand for well-rounded and globally oriented engineers, computer scientists, architects, managers and other technological professionals. NJIT offers students the opportunity to develop these qualities through its study abroad program. In conjunction with their studies, students also develop cross-cultural communication skills and increase their fluency in a second language by studying and living in another country. These advanced technological and communication skills enable a graduating student to compete and excel in a multinational or multicultural business environment.
The study abroad program is available to undergraduate and graduate NJIT students. Undergraduate students must have a sophomore, junior or senior standing and must have a grade point average of at least 3.0. Graduate students must have at least a 3.5 GPA. The study abroad period can be for a summer term, one semester or a full academic year. At some institutions, courses are taught in English. Therefore, proficiency in a foreign language is recommended, but not necessary for all placements.
