ICAI-SAPIENS at Universidad Pontificia Comillas Madrid is a program designed for engineering students interested in getting international experience without missing technical courses required for graduation with their classes. We offer a set of engineering courses, research opportunity, and a set of Spanish Culture and Language courses. Engineering courses are taught in English, while the students get immersed in the Spanish Culture through Spanish language courses and leisure activities with classmates.
