It is designed to provide students with knowledge, language skills, and experiences to help prepare them for a career that is likely to include collaborations with professionals from various parts of the world. Students can enroll in the International Engineering Minor on LionPath.

Engineering Leadership Development Minor – The Engineering Leadership Development Minor focuses on providing a challenging, relevant, and dynamic world-class program that further engages students in their education while preparing them for leadership roles in a technical work environment.


International Engineering Certificate – Students will enroll in the certificate via LionPath. At the time of graduation, Global Engineering Engagement will confirm the completion of the requirements and a certificate will be issued by the registrar.

The mission of Global Engineering Engagement is to create an environment that embraces the values of international education, where access to global exposure and opportunities to develop cross-cultural competence is pervasive. We believe that it is within our reach to ensure that all engineering students can become internationally engaged.
