University of Miami College of Engineering Selected to Participate in the Global Engineering Consortium

With a growing demand for internationally-experienced engineering graduates, the University of Miami College of Engineering (UMCoE) has been selected to participate in the Institute of International Education’s Global Engineering Education Exchange (Global E3). This consortium more than doubles our existing study abroad partnerships at acclaimed universities.

Engineering students can take courses internationally while receiving course credit at UMCoE. Participating students will pay tuition at UM and all eligible merit and need-based assistance is applied to this international experience. The program’s flexible timing affords students the opportunity to study abroad for a semester or entire school year.

“In today’s technological world, engineers interact with various cultures and across language barriers. By participating in Global E3, engineering students will enhance their language, cultural skills and professional experience needed to excel in today’s ever changing global economy,” said Jean-Pierre Bardet, dean of the College.

Bardet continues, “Lourdes Dieck-Assad, vice president for Hemispheric and Global Affairs, and her team are credited with assisting in the construction of this strategic partnership and making it available UMCoE students.”

Through participation in the program, Global E3 graduates receive course work in English, have the opportunity to enhance their linguistic and cultural skills, as well as gain professional experiences to excel in the multinational/multicultural business environment of the 21st century.
