The International Engineering minor offers undergraduate engineering students an opportunity to certify their global competencies and demonstrate their understanding of the intercultural needs of modern engineers. By combining an engineering experience abroad, courses from a generalized global core, thematic elective courses, and the signature course for the minor, students may demonstrate their readiness for the increasingly global field of engineering.
Global Core (9–12 credits)
Each course in the global core also satisfies a baccalaureate core requirement. Students may complete some of these courses to fulfill their baccalaureate core while also applying those credits to the International Engineering minor if they choose.
