Fluor International Engineering Program
International Engineering Minor
Many of the companies that hire Texas Tech engineering graduates have international operations, suppliers or customers. Our International Engineering Minor will give students an exposure to other cultures that can benefit their engineering career as they work for these companies. This program allows students to prepare for, document and share their study abroad experience. Overall, the minor provides engineering students with international experience and perspective that will directly benefit their employers and themselves.
The world is a vast place full of interesting people, places, and history. We would like to help you show off your skills by giving you the opportunity to design your own internationally themed minor. First, you’ll need to come up with a theme which your minor will follow. You could choose a specific country or region of the world, business, economics, or political science. Next, you’ll need to speak with Shannon Younger at the Engineering Opportunities Center to work on your schedule, get approval for your classes, and make sure you’re meeting all the requirements. After that, all that’s left is to pursue your passions and see the world.
Like all other minors, the International Engineering Minor requires a minimum of 18 hours of coursework. Three of those hours must be a foreign language, but only six hours of foreign language can be applied to the minor. Lastly, but not surprisingly, you’ll also need to study abroad in order to get this minor. You can take advantage of one of our faculty led programs, or you can use one of the other opportunities to study abroad. With the International Engineering Minor and the Fluor International Engineering Program, the whole world is open to you.
