Engineering in France

Live and study engineering in Montpellier, France’s fastest-growing city and home to thousands of students from around the world. Experience the exciting hub of modern technological industries alongside historic traditions. Explore Montpellier’s historic city, the Place de la Comédie; and take excursions to the striking Provence region, nearby Medieval towns, and the famous historic cities of Avignon and Arles. It is an ideal place to take classes for your major, from computer science to mechanical engineering.

The program offers two tracks: the English track, available to third- and fourth-year engineering students with no language prerequisite, and the French track, available to any student with four+ semesters of college-level French proficiency. Within your track you will select from a range of classes in computer science and management; electrical engineering; biological and food engineering; materials science and engineering; mechanical engineering and interactive design; and water science and engineering. Participants in both tracks will also enroll in a French language course—from beginning through advanced.
The Learning Abroad Center’s Study Abroad Scholarship provides awards for Non-University of Minnesota undergraduate students going on eligible Learning Abroad Center credit-bearing programs.
