The Global Option in Engineering (GO ENGR) Program infuses global perspectives into the undergraduate engineering curriculum and involves course selections with global perspectives as part of the various engineering degree programs.

GO ENGR educates students on the impact of global cultural diversity on engineering decisions.  Students plan an undergraduate engineering curriculum with elements related to international themes and global dimensions without adding time to graduation by selectively using credit hours they are already required to take as part of their chosen engineering major. Upon successful completion, students receive an Engineering Global Option designation on their transcript.

In order to enroll in the GO ENGR Program, students must have an initial meeting with the Director of International Initiatives in Engineering.  Prior to that meeting, students are asked to download and complete the GO ENGR Registration Form.


In order to earn the Engineering Global Option designation, students must complete coursework and/or fieldwork in each of the following four (4) categories:

A.  Early Education Abroad (3 credit hours)

B.  International Elements of Engineering (3 credit hours)

      Courses involving international elements that
       apply engineering/technical knowledge


      Co-op/Internship outside the U.S.

C.  Foreign Culture or Language (6 credit hours)
D.  International Engineering Design (3 credit hours)
