The world is more globalized today than it has ever been before and globalization continues to be at the heart of business around the world. This new trend comes with many great challenges for college students throughout the world. Students must now be globally aware in order to remain competitive in today’s globalized society. This paper will focus on understanding what factors affect the global competency of engineering students. A survey was created to assess students’ global awareness knowledge. The study focuses on students’ responses to knowledge-based questions regarding different global content/issues. By analyzing students’ responses and correlating them to the background information of the students, we will discuss which factors influence students’ global awareness knowledge. This paper does not seek to gauge students’ interest in global issues, but rather discover which factors play a role in their knowledge of the globalized world. The discussions will be presented based on statistical analysis of student responses to the survey.
