Fluor International Engineering Program
Studying Abroad Brings Tangible Benefits
There is a growing demand for engineering graduates with international experience. Employers are seeking applicants with an awareness of global business practices, cross-cultural communication skills and language fluency. In this global society, engineering spans the world, without borders or barriers. Studying or working abroad demonstrates your ability to adapt to new environments, work well with people from all cultures, look at a situation from different perspectives, and take risks to achieve your goals. With today’s tight job market, these highly valued qualities can help you make a great first impression on employers and, hopefully, land your dream job.
Our Commitment To Your Advancement
The Whitacre College of Engineering is committed to providing students with quality international engineering experiences that prepare them to work in a global environment. We actively work with many different universities and organizations from around the world to give you the best opportunities to study and work abroad, including several TTU sponsored programs where our instructors travel with you to teach classes at foreign institutions. Regardless of which program you choose to invest in, we’ll be here to help you with everything from getting prepared for your trip and making sure you can afford the costs all the way to the end of your academic career and beyond.
Have Some Fun
Of course, studying abroad isn’t the chance of a lifetime simply because of the opportunities to improve you skills and résumé, it’s also a chance to have new experiences, meet new people, and just have a good time. We encourage everyone to travel and have fun during their stay abroad. All our sponsored programs include cultural and business trips as well as time to travel in the schedule, and we encourage students who aren’t participating in a sponsored program to make the most of the travel time. You can check out our photo gallery to see some of the pictures that past students have taken. You can also contact the Engineering Opportunities Center to find out more about any of the programs and locations where our students travel.
