I was working together with two university lecturers on a research project about mobile agents in the department of computer science. The working environment was very good considering the people and the infrastructure. There is also a broad program of extracurricular activities, such as free dance classes for example, which I enjoyed a lot.
I would definitely recommend other foreign exchange students to come here. My work was very interesting and a good experience for me. If safety issues are making you think about whether to come or not: from my point of view Colombia is not more dangerous than other South-American countries. During my stay nothing happened to me.
