Our international short programs enable participating students to obtain a complete understanding of the economic, social, cultural and political reality of the countries they visit. With a length of 1 to 4 weeks classes and lectures from outstanding professionals and academics are combined with visits to relevant industries and cultural walks, creating a unique international experience.
It is an excellent option if you are looking to enjoy a true international experience but in a shorter period of time which is not as financially demanding.
Among the available programs are:

3. FACTORY EXPLORES: INTERNATIONAL TECHNOLOGICAL INTERVENTIONS
Factoría Explora was born with the intention of generating an international experience for students who are working in research and technological development within FactoríaUDD, the technological exploration center. These interventions are carried out internationally renowned universities with a group of students and a responsible researcher during two annual periods (February and July). The program is hosted by the Faculty of Engineering, but is open to students of all faculties that are active part of Factoría UDD. During 2015, the two stays (EXP1 and EXP2) were held at the facilities of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the city of Boston, USA. The group was housed inside the Little Devices Laboratory.
