The engineering industry is global and interconnected with supply, demand and service providers located anywhere in the world. An effective engineer in this global environment is one that complements their core technical knowledge with excellent cross-cultural competence and international exposure.

The International Engineering Certificate program prepares Texas A&M University undergraduates to join the global job market after they graduate. The certificate is only available to undergraduate students in the Texas A&M University College of Engineering.

In order to earn the certificate — which will be noted on the student’s permanent transcript — students are required to satisfy the following items.
