The University enjoys cooperation agreements with several international universities. These agreements include the implementation of student exchange programs which allow students to study abroad in partner universities, giving them the opportunity to increase their knowledge and refine their expertise, scientific and practical training, as well as experiencing the history, culture and traditions of these countries. These programs strengthen the framework of cooperation with the partner countries and serve to meet common goals.
The Student Exchange Program at Princess Sumaya University for Technology offers the opportunity to study abroad at international universities for one or two semesters. The University has a number of agreements with some of the most prestigious universities in Europe, Asia and America, including Hasselt University in Belgium, Bilkent University in Turkey, and the University of Michigan-Dearborn in the US.
