Become a Global Engineering Fellow

Become a Global Engineering Fellow

The goal of Global Engineering Fellows is to provide an opportunity for technically grounded, globally engaged students to build on their international experiences. The Fellows program is intended to prepare participants to enter the workforce with intercultural awareness and communication skills, poising them to become global leaders. Additionally, fellows serve the College of Engineering by generating interest in global opportunities and helping to create meaningful connections between the college’s international and domestic students. 

If you are accepted into the pre-fellow status, you will be enrolled in a one-credit Global Engineering Fellows course fall 2024. This course will take place at 8:00 a.m. on Thursday mornings. In this course, you will:

  • Reflect and build upon intercultural learning experiences and consider ways to apply knowledge, skills, and perspectives.
  • Assess your own cultural lens and interpret how it influences your worldview.
  • Deliver a compelling (clearly argued, articulated, inspiring, and well-prepared) presentation about how international experiences are relevant and beneficial to becoming a successful engineer.
  • Learn how to serve as a peer advisor to support students considering international opportunities.
  • Participate in a leadership retreat with other aspiring Global Fellows.
  • Earn a Global Engineering Fellows micro-credential.

If you are interested in becoming a Global Engineering Fellow for the fall 2024 semester, please complete this interest form.

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.
