An effective engineer in this global environment is one that complements their core technical knowledge with excellent cross-cultural competence and international exposure. In addition, issues in the global society cross country border lines.
Texas A&M is determined to support engineering faculty members and students with numerous opportunities for global exposure which is partially achieved through strategic partnerships. Strategic partnerships with institutions across the world allow faculty members and students to collaborate and expand their opportunities for research and advanced education. Through these partnerships, Texas A&M’s engineering college will create new networks or strengthen existing networks, which will lead to more opportunities for innovation and success.
In addition to research programs at Texas A&M University at Qatar, Texas A&M maintains strong connections and collaborations with researchers from many institutions outside the United States. Joint efforts with international partners include research inquiries, funding opportunities and exchange programs that benefit students and established investigators. Texas A&M currently has active Memoranda of Agreement with Australia, Austria, Benin, Brazil, Chile, China, Costa Rica, Denmark, Ecuador, Egypt, El Salvador, Fipse, France, Germany, Greece, Guatemala, Hong Kong, India, Italy, Japan, Korea, Kosovo, Kuwait, Mexico, Namibia, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Pakistan, Panama, Peru, Qatar, Romania, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan and the United Kingdom.
