What is Global E³?

Global E3: The Global Engineering Education Exchange Program. Recognizing a growing demand for internationally-experienced engineering graduates, a group of leading universities around the world established the Global E3 in 1995. Global E3 allows engineering students at member universities to enjoy a fulfilling study abroad experience. Check out the Global E3 brochure for Shanghai Jiao Tong University Joint Institute here.

Am I Eligible?

You are eligible if you:
  • Are currently enrolled at one of the participating Global E³ universities.
  • Are currently studying engineering or computer science.
  • Have been nominated by your home school to submit an application.
  • Have the language ability to take courses in the host campus language and/or in English.


Language of Instruction: English
JI has two main academic terms: Summer and Fall. Exchange students may come for either or both semesters, however JI does not accept exchange applications for the Spring term. The start of the summer term is shortly after the end of the spring term at UM, so that students from universities following UM's calendar may study at JI without missing any spring term courses. The fall term starts in early or mid-September and ends before Christmas. In most institutions, this allows students to spend their fall term at JI with no impact to their remaining academic year. 

Semester Dates

Fall Term Spring Term Summer Term Mid Sept. - Late December
14 Weeks (1 week off for holiday) Late Feb - Late April
10 Weeks Mid May - Mid August
13 Weeks
These term dates include the time taken for final examinations.

Disciplines Available:

  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Electrical and Computer Engineering 
Courses in Business, Humanities, and Social Sciences as well as Mathematics, Physics, and Chemistry are available as part of these programs.
Engineering students from other disciplines (e.g., aerospace, industrial, and nuclear engineering) may find that courses from the above programs fit into their curriculum. 
Exchange students may participate in capstone design/major design experience projects. These have in the past have been successfully transferred back to home institutions.
