School of Engineering
The School of Engineering has carefully selected a program abroad that will support a student's academic trajectory. All students applying to a semester or year-long program must have a declared major in order to be approved by Fairfield to proceed with study abroad acceptances.
The NUI Galway semester program has been selected for our Engineering students during their junior year Fall semester. Please connect with the Engineering Dean's Office for guidance in your Freshman year on how to begin the application process for this opportunity.
This semester program is only open to Mechanical and Electrical Engineering Majors. This program has been custom-built between the Fairfield University and IQS' School of Engineering. Students on this program will enroll in a prescribed curriculum based on their major field of study.
