Advice about colleges for studying abroad

  1. Apr 23, 2014 #1
    Hello, I'm an undergrad of Electrical Engineering and I'm planning to participate, if not at the end of this year, in the end of the next, of a program called "Science without Borders". In this program, I'll be able to attend to a university of other country for a year, what they call here 'sandwich graduation'.
    Of course, you have to be accepted to the colleges you apply for and prove that you are proficient in the natural language of the referred country. But the advice I'm looking for is: which colleges would you recommend for me to look for?
    My university here itself, has kind of an emphasis in power systems, which is characteristic of EE courses around here. Do you guys think I should try to complement my graduation going for something more broad in the EE field, or should I look for courses in the US more directed to this sub-field? If possible, explain why (i.e. the main aspects) you advised me that(those) college(s). Thanks in advance.

    A lot of personal preference is factored when choosing a university. More than just "what are the best EE programs". You can do a Google search for that. You need to decide what other attributes of a university are you looking for.
