UD Global Engineering provides students, staff and faculty with the resources to engage globally, in and out of the classroom. We believe that thinking and acting globally contributes to providing our students with the skills needed to excel on our campus and throughout their careers. Engaging in our complex yet integrated world requires us to think about our impact in new and exciting ways. Inspired by global technological innovations, collaborations, and the creativity of our own campus community, we strive to thread the spirit of adventure throughout our academic excellence.

Why go global?

Employers are keen to find innovative engineers with the soft skills to work in cross-cultural environments to solve some of our toughest global challenges. As we engage in a complex yet integrated world, it’s important for us to think about our field in new and exciting ways. We are inspired by social innovations in the technology sectors, opportunities for cross-cultural collaboration, and the creativity of our own campus community. Our aim is to foster a culture of global engagement in the College of Engineering to enhance our teaching, research and service through positive social impact. Join us in threading the spirit of adventure in academic excellence!
