The Coordinated International Experience (CIE) program offers a student the opportunity to apply to study a pre-selected and pre-approved set of courses over one academic term at an international CIE partner institution. The student gains new, global perspectives with the credit received from courses completed counting towards the student’s B.Des. degree.
Participation in the CIE program is by application. A student may apply in the second term of Year 2 in order to participate in the CIE program in the second term of Year 3 in lieu of DES 302 and required elective coursework. Admission to the CIE program is competitive and admittance can not be guaranteed.
The CIE program is administered by the Faculty of Applied Science. Further information is available here.
