Towards a College-Wide System of Experiences and Programs to Achieve Global Competence for Engineering StudentsAbstractLike many institutions across the country, we have embarked on development of experiences andprograms related to the objective of achieving global competence in our engineering students.These internationally-oriented activities have been part of a phased plan at the college level todevelop a system to achieve global competence within our graduates. Key activities included thedevelopment and piloting of international technical experiences, coursework design, anddevelopment of definitions for global competence related to student learning outcomes andassociated assessment tools.The paper presents a description of the current state of the college program and provides anoverview of future directions to a curricular and non-curricular system. Emphasis is placed onthe integration of the system with academic degree programs within the college and resourcesoutside of the college. Reflections on the experiences and learning gained in the developmentand implementation of the experiences, programs, and hoped-for college-wide system arepresented. These reflections are generalized to be lessons-learned that could apply to otherinstitutions trying to build their international programs.
