The University of Illinois at Chicago’s (UIC) Programs for International Partnerships (PIP) provides the opportunity for students to either complete their final year of undergraduate studies or pursue graduate studies in an international setting in Chicago, Illinois.
Currently undergraduate program offerings include: Electrical and Computer Engineering, Civil and Materials Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, Bioengineering, Bioinformatics, Music, and Public Administration.
The undergraduate programs do not require a TOEFL or IELTS score for admission. Instead, UIC send faculty and staff to meet with the students for a face-to-face interview to evaluate their English language competency. Students who successfully work towards completing the one-year undergraduate program may apply for graduate study in one of PIP’s contract programs.
In addition to undergraduate programs, PIP offers a number of contract graduate programs for students from partner universities and organizations. The graduate programs are completed in one year, are fully accredited, and students receive a University of Illinois at Chicago Master’s Degree.
The current contract graduate programs offered include: Electrical and Computer Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Civil Engineering, Materials Engineering, Bioengineering, and Bioinformatics, Public Administration, Statistics, Instructional Leadership, Applied Economics. (Some require TOEFL.)
Contract programs have a lower tuition rate.
