Minor Global Engineering Minor

To be named, Coordinator

The minor in global engineering is for students who plan to seek career opportunities in companies with global operations. With globalization of design and manufacturing, it has become important for engineers, engaged in transnational projects, to not only have better teamwork and communication skills, but also a good understanding of the socioeconomic, environmental and cultural aspects of global engineering projects. The global engineering minor provides an understanding of these aspects through courses that develop an understanding of global technology, quality assurance standards, and differences in cultural, communication and business practices in a global work environment.
