Study Abroad Coordinator: Colleen Boyle (

Northeastern University is initiating a formal exchange program with the Polytecnic University of Catalonia (UPC). This program will allow students from NU to spend a semester studying at UPC and for students from UPC to come to NU for a semester. Our arrangment is with both the computer engineering school and the telecommunications school, which includes communications, signal processing, and a lot of other fields as well.

UPC is a very good engineering school, with very strong faculty and programs in these two areas. This program was initiated by Profs David Kaeli and Dana Brooks, each of whom has recently spent a sabbatical year at UPC. In addition, as both Prof. Kaeli and Prof. Brooks will be glad to tell you, Barcelona is a wonderful city and a very interesting place to spend some time.

If you think you might be interested, please consult Prof. Kaeli or Prof. Brooks to talk about your interest and how a semester at UPC might fit into your academic program.
