The U.S. engineer of the future will need the knowledge, skills and abilities to help find solutions to a variety of concerns such as poverty, environmental problems, transportation issues, and security.  The Minor in International Engineering prepares engineering students to practice engineering in a global economy by contributing to a greater understanding of the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, political, and societal contexts.  The requirements are designed to provide for the acquisition of knowledge and practical skills pertaining to engaging in cross-cultural business situations in the engineering and technology fields; direct experience with the study and practice of engineering in a foreign country; and an increased knowledge base related to the country or region where the student gains his/her global experience. Students interested in completing this minor program should contact the MIE advisor in the Clark School for advisement. Students who successfully complete the requirements for a Minor will have the accomplishment noted on their transcript.
