Engineering and Computer Science Internships in Spain


You will live in shared apartments with access to a kitchen, and share bathrooms and other facilities. Location and proximity to internships will vary based on individual placements. You should not have to commute more than one hour each way to your internship. All accommodations will have access to Wi-Fi and laundry facilities.

UC Davis reserves the right to change the accommodation location. Should this be necessary, we will arrange alternative lodging. Please note that elevators, air conditioners and other modern conveniences may not be available in all locations.


Other than the welcome dinner and farewell dinner, no meals are included for students staying in apartments. You will need to prepare your own meals. There will be grocery stores near all accommodations.

Barcelona is one of Europe’s most popular cities, and with good reason. The historic capital of Catalonia is packed with galleries, museums, historical attractions and places to eat. Set between the mountains and sea, it’s a buzzing and vibrant city, celebrated for its unique architecture, famous artists and city beaches.
