There is a growing demand for engineering graduates with international experience. Employers are seeking applicants with an awareness of global business practices, cross-cultural communication skills, and language fluency. The A. James Clark School of Engineering at the University of Maryland is committed to providing you with a quality engineering education that will prepare you to work in a global environment.
In addition to a strong engineering background, there is a need for engineers with cross-cultural experience and foreign language abilities. Students in the A. James Clark School of Engineering may earn a Minor in International Engineering (MIE) by completing requirements that can include language, culture studies, internationally related studies, international engineering or international engineering-related courses and an engineering abroad experience (work, study or research). 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.
