Since 2000, students took advantage of the Global Internship Programs with notable firms in the US like SOM, Smith Group, De Stefano, Ellerbe Becket and NBBJ. Each student spent bewteen 2 to 6 months. Every year, the department has expanded this program to send more students, but since the global economic crisis in 2012, the program has seen difficulties getting visas for participating students. However, the department is committed to search for more internship opportunities overseas. Meanwhile, couple of architecture students have been participating in an internship program offered by IAESTE(The International Association for the Exchange of Students for Technical Experience) in collaboration with Korea University Office of Foreign Affairs.
