The University of South Florida and the Department of Computer Science and Engineering have signed collaboration agreements and Memoranda of Understanding (MOU) at the undergraduate and graduate levels with several universities around the world. These agreements are meant to foster collaboration and exchange of students between USF and the following institutions:
Universidad del Norte, Barranquilla, Colombia
Universidad del Norte, an ABET-accredited school, is a premier private university in Colombia. Our agreement fosters the transfer of Uninorte Computer Science majors to USF for completion of senior year courses, earning a USF Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and for completion of courses for a Master's degree in Computer Science.
The University of South Florida and Uninorte also have a general undergraduate exchange agreement signed, which allows USF and Uninorte students to study up to two semesters in the partner institution paying tuition in their home institution.
Universidad de Oviedo, Oviedo, Asturias, Spain
Universidad de Oviedo celebrated its 400th anniversary in 2008 and is the foremost
public university in the Principality of Asturias, located in the capital city of
Oviedo. Universidad de Oviedo and USF seek to promote international cooperation by
stimulating and supporting intercultural activities and projects between universities.
The universities have developed agreements for students at both the graduate and undergraduate
Students completing 12 credit hours in the Master of Web Engineering program at Universidad de Oviedo may complete their remaining 18 credits at the University of South Florida earning the Master of Science in Computer Science (MSCS) degree.
Another program provides for the exchange of three undergraduate or graduate students per year between universities. Students pay tuition at their home university, therefore tuition is waived at the host institution. Students may choose to live at an on campus resident hall or procure accommodations in the local community.
Universidad de Navarra, Spain
The agreement between USF and the Universidad de Navarra School of Engineering for the exchange of undergraduate students is intended to promote international friendship and world peace by supporting projects and activities between the United States and Spain. Designed as a one-year exchange program, the student's home university will be responsible for the selection of qualified candidates. It is the responsibility of the home institution to determine the amount of credits students receive for courses taken at the host institution.
Both schools desire to develop collaborative educational and research opportunities for students and faculty. Faculty and researchers in various disciplines are encouraged to develop contacts and propose collaborative projects under this agreement.
