Future professionals should be prepared for a globalized world. In this context, universities all around the world offer several exchange programmes to their students. They allow them to enrich their education, beyond the academic contents, and entail a differentiator element in their curricula. This paper analyses exchange programmes in Building Engineering Degree (BED), from 2005 to nowadays, when the Degree started at Jaume I University (Castellón, Spain). The main aim is to perform a deep analysis of the programmes to establish future guidelines in order to improve them. To do that, the programmes offered in the degree are described: Universities where bilateral agreements are running with BED, people involved in the performance of the programmes, quantitative data of the attendance and exchanges that have been carrying out up to now. Secondly, a survey of the strong and weak points of the exchange programmes is presented, by means of a questionnaire that was filled by the students who took part in the exchanges. Finally, a layout of the future lines that will be undertaken has been outlined.
