The UCF College of Engineering and Computer Science student exchange at Saitama Univeristy takes place in Saitama, Japan. The School of Engineering at Saitama University was established in 1965. The total enrollment at Saitama University is about 7,500 students and has an estimated 500 international students. All of the university’s undergraduate and graduate schools are housed on the Okubo campus (in the Okubo neighborhood of Saitama City). This is advantageous in many respects, offering an environment that is conducive to education and research, extracurricular activities, and student life.
The city of Saitama is part of the Greater Tokyo Area and can be described as a suburb of Tokyo. The region of Saitama consists mostly of a hilly area with some mountainous terrain. To the west, one can see Mt. Fuji (3,776 m) far off in the distance and the nearer Chichibu mountain range of about 2,000 meters high. Many citizens reside in Saitama and commute to Tokyo for work.

You can apply online for this program. The application includes the submittal of a brief essay (500 words) that clearly describes your academic and personal goals, as well as how this program would further them. We recommend you work on your essay outside the application environment and then paste it on the appropriate field.
Selected participants must meet with their Academic Advisor to discuss and register for the appropriate coursework. Coursework completed through the program may count as equivalent UCF course credit and/or as restricted or general elective credit.
All applications will be reviewed by the UCF College of Engineering and Computer Science and selected applicants will be notified of how to follow up. Assessment of the applications will be based on the academic qualifications of the applicant, as well as fit with the courses that the applicant has taken.
