For the past ten years the college leadership in the College of Engineering and Technology at XXX University has placed an emphasis on developing global programs. We started with almost nothing in place. Through steady effort on the part of dedicated faculty, staff, and donors, we have gradually implemented a suite of programs around the world that now involves about 150 students per year. In this paper we look back and discuss the road we have traveled and what we have learned. We discuss some of the assumptions made ten years ago and how well those assumptions hold up today. We conclude with some observations about the relevance of global education for engineers and what needs to be done as we move forward.
