Possible Session Topical Areas: Best Universal Practices in Creating and Fostering Industry & Academic Partnerships Starting Successful Faculty-Led Programs: Opportunities, Challenges and Risks. Corporate Partnerships for International Experiences: A Case Study Model of the Boeing Engineering Leadership Program By Nicole Sanderlin, Kim Lester and Liang Li Wu Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University University of California IrvinePartnerships between universities and industry have long been important for schools ofengineering, but are becoming increasingly critical to consider when developing study abroadexperiences for engineering students. While attention has been called to the importance of thesepartnerships, few studies have examined what components are necessary for the success of theserelationships. Using a case study approach, this study examines one short-term summer programfor students of aerospace engineering, the Boeing Engineering Leadership Program, which wasspearheaded by the University of California Irvine in partnership with Boeing China andVirginia Tech in Beijing, China in summer 2014. The case points to four components needed fora successful partnership, including a corporate sponsor, strong lead institution, host university in-country, and the participation of US and international students. This model can be used by otherinstitutions to inform the creation of future international experiences for engineering students incollaboration with corporate partners.
