Program Information

Many engineers encounter projects in unfamiliar cultures and work on multinational teams.  The Certificate in Global Engineering provides cross cultural insight and experience that will increase the ability of engineers to work on projects and teams in other countries and cultures.  Students learn advanced intercultural communication and teaming skills, and then complete a cross cultural design project while working on multinational teams, or by working on a project in Latin America, Asis or Africa for example.

Students from any engineering discipline at the School of Mines may pursue the Certificate in Global Engineering by completing 9 credit hours of coursework as described below.

Certificate Requirements
