Today’s engineers work with multi-national teams in design, manufacturing, and marketing all over the world. Because working on international projects has become the norm, the College of Engineering and Applied Science believes that we need to prepare students to work in a global society.
CU Engineering encourages students to have at least one international experience. Students who have participated in international experiences tend to have higher grades, higher job placement rates and are able to work better with colleagues from other national and cultural perspectives. Other advantages include a new self-awareness and confidence, appreciation of your own culture and language and adaptability to new and different environments.
International opportunities available to CU Engineering students include (but are not limited to) the following:
International Engineering Certificate
Earn an undergraduate certificate through foreign language and culture courses in French, German, Italian, Spanish, Chinese or Japanese, followed by a co-op or internship at a company or university lab abroad.
Global Engineering Certificate
Earn an undergraduate certificate through coursework that will expand your understanding of how to operate in an international context from an engineering perspective, whether you plan to work domestically or internationally as part of an international team.
