International Engineering Education

International Engineering Education at the Cockrell School of Engineering provides students with an opportunity to begin their journey toward becoming an engineer of the globalized 21st Century.

Today, an engineer’s technical mastery needs to be coupled with an understanding of the global forces and cultures that affect the success of  a project and shape the  interaction with clients, colleagues and governments.  

Having an understanding of the global marketplace allows engineers to become entrepreneurs and leaders who can successfully innovate, manage, develop and implement technology to find solutions to global challenges and needs.  


IEE Programs

International Engineering Education has a study abroad opportunity that fits every engineering student. Students may choose to participate on a faculty-led summer or maymester program after their first year, or/and again during a semester or year long exchange during their junior or senior year.
