A semester- or year-long program designed for sophomores or juniors in the College of Engineering (particularly chemical, electrical, and computer science). The program takes place at the Universitat Politècnica de Valencia (UPV); the majority of the courses are taught in Spanish, but some are taught in English. Upon arrival, students take a two-week intensive Spanish course prior to the beginning of classes. Notre Dame students take advantage of a high teacher- student ratio and well-equipped laboratories with up-to-date technology. At UPV, a university focused on science and technology, students will attend classes, live and eat alongside Spaniards and other international students, and participate in the same wide array of social, cultural, and athletic activities. Alcoy is a small town of roughly 80,000 people in the Valencian state of Spain. It is nicely situated in an inland valley roughly 20 km from the Costa Blanca. Alcoy is best known for the annual Festival of Moors and Christians, held in April, where Alcoy celebrates its founding. Alcoy is known as the City of Bridges, because of the multiple bridges that span the local gorges.
