International Engineering

The engineering industry today is global and interconnected with supply, demand and service providers being located anywhere in the world. An effective engineer in this global environment is one that complements his/her core technical knowledge with excellent cross-cultural competence and international exposure. The certificate program prepares TAMU undergraduates to join the global job market they will face once they graduate.

The International Engineering Certificate is only available to undergraduate engineering students within the Texas A&M University College of Engineering.

In order to earn the certificate, which is noted on the student’s permanent transcript, students are required to satisfy the following items listed below.

  • Language Component [See note 1]: Three (3) credits of a 200 level course or above in a single language-excluding English or student’s native language.
  • International Component Six (6) credits from the International and Cultural Diversity courses in the university core curriculum. Check out core.tamu.edu for a list of eligible courses.
  • Global Engineering Design Component: Three (3) credits from one of the following:
    • ENGR 410 Global Engineering
      OR
    • Engineering course completed in a study abroad program
      OR
    • 200 level or above engineering course with a significant international component
  • International Experience Component Three (3) credits. The international experience component is a credit-bearing international internship, research, or approved study abroad program.

Please note that no course may be counted twice

Notes

  • Students can place out of these courses with AP credit or by showing proficiency by exam. These courses can be taken in or outside the US. However, immersion language to gain this basic level of language learning will not count for the international experience.
