2018 global engineering fellows cohort

About the Global Engineering Fellows

The Global Engineering Fellows program brings together cohorts of students who have distinguished themselves through international engagement in study, research or an internship abroad. This rigorous, but rewarding program is a springboard for students who are enthusiastic to build off their global experiences and generate global momentum at Penn State.

Students who join this elite group develop skills to become globally-minded leaders in the College of Engineering, interact with our network of Global Engineering Fellows alumni, and they have a major impact in shaping the experiences of their peers.

Distinguishing features of the Global Engineering Fellows program include:

  • Enrollment in a course designed to build on international experiences, enhance cultural intelligence and further global professional development
  • Development and application of presentation skills
  • Provides students with leadership opportunities, including a leadership retreat
  • Unique insight into global careers
  • Engagement with international students
  • Establish a meaningful connection with a diverse, global cohort
  • Opportunity to earn a scholarship

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.
