The UIC College of Engineering has a long history of success in the field of engineering with world-renowned professors conducting ground-breaking innovative research. The College offers degrees in six fields of engineering and over 22,000 students have received a degree from the College and have gone on to become leaders in their industries and top researchers around the world.
In collaboration with the College of Engineering, UAEDP offers a non-degree 12-month undergraduate training program, as well as four specialized Masters Degree programs.
First Year: Non-Degree Training Program
This program is designed for students pursuing Engineering-related undergraduate degrees in their home universities. Participants in this program will complete their final (senior) year of undergraduate study at UIC taking courses in related fields. Participants are not awarded UIC credit nor issued a transcript. However, a certificate of completion is presented to each participant following successful completion of the program.
Potential participants are selected by their home university based on their academic performance and professional goals. UIC faculty/staff will interview the students in their home country to evaluate their English language ability and to see if they would be successful in an American classroom.
Second Year: Master's Programs in Engineering
Working with the UIC College of Engineering, UAEDP offers four Masters Degrees in the fields of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE), Chemical Engineering (ChE), Mechanical Engineering (ME), and Industrial Engineering (IE). Participants in the programs take classes with traditional UIC Engineering students. Courses are taught by UIC Faculty and all degrees are accredited by official U.S. accreditation organizations for those majors.
Students who have successfully completed the first year's non-degree training program can apply for the Master's Program and will be evaluated on their respective admission qualifications. TOEFL score is required for admission.
