Program Description:

UCF civil engineering students have the opportunity to participate in an exchange program with the University of Cantabria in Spain. The University of Cantabria is a young public university, founded in 1972, whose main objective is to contribute to social progress via its commitment to teaching and scientific excellence. The university has more than 12,000 students. The University of Cantabria’s campus is divided between Santander -the capital of the Autonomous Region of Cantabria- and Torrelavega, a town 20 kilometres from the capital. This beautiful region of half a million inhabitants is on the shores of the Cantabrian Sea and is crossed by a mountain range. The shores and inland valleys offer a wide variety of landscapes as a consequence of the mild, moist climate of so called Green Spain.

  • UCF GPA: 2.75 cumulative
  • Must be an engineering major with completed prerequisite courses      
  • Must be in good standing (academic, conduct and financial) with UCF
  • Must be registered full time while participating in the exchange
