Engineering firms both large and small depend on multinational operations and are in high demand for professionals with cross-cultural experiences.  Studying abroad will give students in this field the opportunity to broaden their capabilities, expand their perspectives, and learn to adapt to foreign differences.  Studying Abroad can also be a great time to gain cross-cultural skills by satisfying general education requirements or the elective credits allotted to Engineering majors/minors.

See the list of recommended study abroad programs below.  Please be aware that for any external or exchange study abroad programs listed, students will need to check with their academic department to see if courses taken while abroad will transfer and fulfill needed requirements.
