CU Engineering faculty members are essential to developing programs that advance the Engineering for a Global Society theme. Faculty can teach CU Global Education seminars, host international graduate students in research labs, write international research grants, propose dual-degree programs, assist with international internship placement, develop new courses, participate in faculty exchanges and share engineering expertise with faculty and students across the world.
During 2008-2009, the college led the way with new proposals for Faculty Global Seminars and Student Exchanges in China, England, France, Germany, Israel, and Japan. The college also led the CU-Boulder campus with PhD dual-degree proposals. Some of these faculty-led partnerships are featured in the blocks below.
