Where You'll Study

Where You'll Study

Established in 1989, the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid has become one of Europe’s preeminent public universities, and after receiving the European Campus of Excellence award in 2010 is now recognized as one of Spain's most rigorous institutions of higher education. Apart from being a public university that has adopted a U.S.-style academic calendar, it also has one of the highest percentages (42 percent) of full-time and tenured women faculty in Spain.

The aim of the Engineering School is to contribute to society by offering quality education and carrying out advanced research in areas of engineering and the sciences in accordance with demanding international criteria. CIEE students in the engineering program can take classes in three schools: Arts and Humanities, Business and Law, and Engineering. Coursework in engineering is completed at the Leganés campus, which is accessible by a modern and very efficient public transportation system. The Leganés campus is approximately 30 to 40 minutes south from downtown Madrid when traveling by public transport.

Housing & Meals

Housing & Meals

Housing and some meals are included in the program fee. Students live with one or more Spanish hosts. Hosts have various backgrounds and are actively involved in the community. Homestays can range from living with numerous family members to living with a single working professional. Housing placement is in central Madrid with a commute to campus of 40 to 50 minutes. Selection is based on information provided by the student´s housing questionnaire. CIEE hosts are very mindful of student´s request for any degree of privacy and personal independence.

study abroad in Spain

All homestays provide a partial meal plan, which includes breakfast and another meal (usually dinner). Any meal not provided by the host is at the student´s expense. Students will have access to a kitchen so that they can prepare snacks or their own meals. Past students have also purchased meal tickets from the university cafeterias or used other food options on campus at affordable prices. All CIEE housing has laundry machines for the student´s use at no extra charge.

Academic year study abroad students have the option of living in a non-CIEE apartment during their second semester. It is required that they share the apartment with other Spanish-speaking roommates. Students who choose this option are responsible for finding, leasing, and managing the apartment on their own and independently of the student housing program. Prior approval by the housing coordinator and program director is required.

Close
Orientations

Orientations

You'll begin your study abroad experience in Madrid even before leaving home by participating in a CIEE online pre-departure orientation. The resident director meets with students online and shares information about the program and site, highlighting issues that alumni have said are important, and giving you time to ask questions. The online orientation allows you to connect with others in the group, reflect on what you want to get out of the program, and learn what others in the group would like to accomplish. CIEE’s aim for the pre-departure orientation is simple: to help you understand more about the program and identify your goals.

A mandatory, weeklong, on-site orientation session will introduce you to the country, culture, and academic program, and provide practical information about living in Spain, and Madrid in particular. Orientation themes include Spanish customs and lifestyle, the university system, money and banking, safety and health, how and where to shop, transportation, and cultural adaptation. Orientation includes both structured cultural activities and independent sightseeing. Spanish students collaborate with CIEE in these activities. You'll also attend the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid orientation for international students, where you'll meet other students from around the world.

Ongoing support is provided by CIEE staff on an individual and group basis throughout the program.

Internet

Internet

You are encouraged to bring a wireless-enabled laptop with you. You'll have Internet access in your housing as well as at campus libraries and some campus cafeterias and classrooms. You will receive a university email account and have free access to all University computer labs and on-campus WiFi. There are also affordable Internet cafés and a few free wireless points located throughout Madrid.

Program trip

You'll take part in an overnight weekend trip to a site of particular interest to your study abroad program. In the past students have gone to Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca, or Bilbao to visit engineering at work, see architecture, and get guided visits to energy companies like Repsol and Iberdrola.

study abroad in Spain

Cultural Activities

CIEE creates a cultural agenda each semester with various optional activities that expose students to Spanish society. Cultural activities are designed to bring American and Spanish university students together. Those include conversation exchanges with Spanish students, a Spanish cooking class, a flamenco class followed by a dinner and show, visits to the Rastro open-air market, and participation in festivals and traditional celebrations in and around the city.

Spanish Student Network

The Spanish Student Network is comprised of local university students who accompany CIEE study abroad students on group activities and other events. The Network introduces you to the university and culture of Madrid.

Intercambios

You are encouraged to participate in the language exchange opportunities available on the Leganés campus. Language partners are encouraged to meet individually with students in various venues, neighborhoods, and businesses in order to accelerate practical use of the language in an applied manner at the appropriate level. Often intercambios result in strong friendships. Intercambios are not required because in many cases, you'll make local and international friends in Madrid and prefer to meet with them in your free time, in which case you'll practice Spanish with them without the need of an exchange.

Volunteering

Every semester CIEE organizes volunteer opportunities that can be completed during a couple of hours each week at local NGO´s, or community centers. Participants are encouraged to engage in the Madrid- wide community in various ways with organizations that are dedicated to people with disabilities, immigrants, children, the elderly or the disadvantaged.

Tutors and Study Groups

You'll have access to tutoring for regular, direct enroll courses and should consult with the resident director if you feel you are falling behind in any Universidad Carlos III de Madrid class. Some classes require group work. It is perfectly normal for Spanish students to share notes with one another and to work together to prepare for final exams. This is an excellent way for you to meet Spaniards.

Sports

The Universidad Carlos III de Madrid has sports facilities similar to those found on a U.S. campus, including an indoor swimming pool and spa, a multi-level gymnasium with tennis, basketball, squash and volleyball courts, and a soccer field. There are numerous activities and non-credit courses, such as yoga, Pilates, step, aerobics, aquafit, stretching, and dance.

Close
Academics

Academics

The CIEE Engineering and Society study abroad program is designed to combine Spanish language and European and Spanish cultural studies with coursework in engineering and the opportunity to participate in an independent internship in Madrid.

Students will take a Spanish language course, a European or Spanish culture course, enrollment courses in the all-English or Spanish bachelor degree programs in their respective academic field with an optional CIEE Internship. Students will take direct enrollment courses in bachelor programs from the School of Engineering. Direct enroll courses in aerospace, energy, or biomedical engineering are taught in English only. Other regular university courses in audiovisual, communication, computer, electrical, electronic, industrial, materials, mechanical, telecommunication, and telematics engineering are taught in either English or Spanish.

Academic Culture

The Engineering Department at the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid offers twelve degree programs. All courses are held in classroom buildings on the Leganés campus. Engineering courses are academically challenging, dynamic, and involve daily reading and homework assignments, as well as required attendance at lectures. The size of regular university courses varies from 25 to 80 students. Classes are taught by faculty with Ph.D. degrees. University classrooms are modern, comfortable, and equipped with the most up-to-date technology used for instruction. Students undertaking an independent internship meet regularly with the course coordinator and other CIEE students, but participants spend the majority of their internship-for-credit with an individual supervisor at the practicum site.

The video below shows what it could be like to study biomedical engineering at the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (English begins at minute one).

Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Biomedical Engineering Video
This video is the property of the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid

Universidad Carlos III de Madrid is a highly regarded public university in Spain with new education guidelines and regulations from the European Union set forth in the Bologna Agreement, resulting in an academic schedule that is very similar to U.S. higher education. The CIEE courses offered in the fall semester begin in early September and end in late December. Students enrolled in regular UC3M courses in the Engineering Department during the fall can arrange to take early exams in December. The spring semester program begins in mid January and runs through early June. Early departure is not allowed in spring. Any extended travel should take place prior to the start of the program, during vacation periods, or upon completion of the program.

Nature of Classes

CIEE students enroll in the required Spanish language class with other CIEE and American students. Depending on the student’s language level, the elective class in Spain-related or European culture is offered by CIEE with other CIEE students only. Advanced-level Spanish students may also choose the Hispanic Studies program with course work in Spanish where classmates are CIEE and other American students. Students with lower or intermediate-level Spanish abilities can choose electives from the various English-taught courses in the UC3M Study Abroad Program. The remainder of course credits are filled with direct enroll UC3M classes in either English or Spanish, depending on the student´s language level. The direct enrollment courses at the university are with degree students and other visiting international students.

The Engineering School follows a model that may be different from U.S. universities. It includes a lecture format during the initial four to six weeks and then a switch to laboratory work or smaller group sessions. At the UC3M Engineering School it is quite common to have a course coordinator to be the instructor with a co-teacher who at times will alternate teaching lectures or lab research. Most of the courses also incorporate online coursework. This helps guide students throughout the semester and allows students to communicate with their teachers outside classroom lectures.

Language Environment

As students gain proficiency in Spanish, resident staff encourages them to use their language skills in everyday settings. The more students participate, the more a community that contributes to Spanish language proficiency and understanding of Spanish society develops.

Language Tutors

Students taking Spanish courses will have the opportunity to check their written assignments by appointment and can receive language help at the university’s Aula de Idiomas. Additional language support is offered for those participants taking regular university courses. With CIEE supervision, students enrolled in the direct enroll courses may find tutors (either graduate students or classmates) who are willing to help them get the most out of the class. In general, tutors meet for one hour, once a week, for up to 10 weeks.

Grading System

In all courses, students are graded on class participation, in class activities, homework assignments, exams, papers, and oral presentations, similar to the standards in the U.S. Numerical grades are given based on a 10-point scale and converted to a U.S. letter grade.
