Study Abroad for Chemical Engineering Students

The Office of Study Abroad is accepting applications for Spring 2021 travel (deadline for most programs was September 15, 2020).  Purdue University will make an announcement regarding study abroad for the Spring 2021 term no later than November 2, 2020.  Students are encouraged to have an alternate plan in the case that travel is restricted.

Chemical Engineering students have the option to pursue study abroad in a variety of ways. For semester-long study abroad our School has agreements with many universities around the world. The School of Chemical Engineering offers a $1,000 scholarship to any ChE student pursuing a semester abroad. Please refer to the list below for course equivalencies that have previously been approved for our students (by country):


Students should explore these and other programs connected with the university through the Purdue study abroad website.  Information about admission requirements, semester availability and more is provided by the Office of Study Abroad.

For more information regarding study abroad opportunities and course equivalencies, please contact the Chemical Engineering Study Abroad Liason and Coordinator, Caryn Morgan  At this time, the Chemical Engineering Undergraduate Office is conducting appointments remotely.

Additional Information

Students will only be allowed to participate in one short-term program to maximize the number of students who experience study abroad. Priority will be given to seniors and juniors and GPA will play an important role in selection of participants.

Any short-term study abroad program (Spring Break, Maymester, etc), may be used to fulfill the Technical Selective, General Education Elective, or General Education Elective - Upper Level in the Chemical Engineering degree requirements.
