Why Thinking Globally is Important

Halliburton Engineering Global Programs develop high-quality, high-impact global engineering programs to expand professional skills and global opportunities for our students. Our mission is to prepare engineering students to lead in the global industry and society. Preparing engineering students with a global mindset is crucial in current times. The National Academy of Engineering states that a core need for engineers is to be able to work with a diverse, multinational, multidisciplinary workforce. To be leaders in industry and to solve our society’s biggest challenges, we need to understand what is happening in the world and be able to collaborate to find relevant solutions.

To support the Texas A&M University College of Engineering by graduating engineers who will succeed in a diverse, globalized economy with a knowledge base that is growing exponentially, we have developed over 70 programs all over the world. These programs vary in length abroad, modality (internship, classes and field trip) and location (more than 20 countries). The college also offers the opportunity for students to develop their global competency on campus with the Invent for the Planet design challenge and the global engineering design course.
