AB International Studies/BS Engineering


Associate Professor Smith (Mechanical Engineering), Chair

Globalization of engineering and technology is increasing the number of attractive job opportunities in foreign countries for engineers with proficiency in a second language and an understanding of foreign cultures. This two-degree program helps students prepare for these careers with international corporations.

Students earn a Bachelor of Science degree in chemical, civil, electrical & computer, or mechanical engineering and a Bachelor of Arts in International Studies. Besides studying a chosen language, students take international politics, international history, and other humanities or social science courses related to the countries or regions where the language is spoken. The capstone experience, either a foreign practicum or study abroad, involves total immersion in a non-English-speaking culture.
