What is Global E3?

Global E3 stands for the Global Engineering Education Exchange Program. Recognizing a growing demand for internationally-experienced engineering graduates, a group of leading universities around the world established the Global E3 in 1995. Global E3 allows engineering students at member universities to enjoy a fulfilling study abroad experience.

Global E3 enables engineering students to go abroad to universities in Asia, Australia, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, and the United States, while earning credit at home. Through participation in the program, Global E3 graduates gain the necessary foreign language ability, cross-cultural skills, and professional experience to excel in the multinational/multicultural business environment of the 21st century.

Program Structure

Students are nominated by their home institution and receive credit at home for academic work completed abroad. They study overseas in a member institution for one or two semesters, typically in their junior year.

Integral to the program is intensive language instruction and the opportunity for students to undertake a practical, paid internship in an industrial setting or laboratory in the host country. The internship component is an especially valuable element in strengthening the international and professional competency of the students, as well as a unique opportunity for host companies to become acquainted with these talented young people at an early stage in their careers.

The program is competitive, selecting only the most promising students with sufficient language ability to successfully complete coursework overseas and engage in a meaningful work experience in industry. In order to expand the opportunities for outstanding students with minimal foreign language ability, some members outside the United States provide instruction in English as well as the home country language.
