College of Engineering

Engineering Global Leaders

In this multi-institution engineering mobility project sponsored by the Fund for Improving Post-Secondary Education of the US Department of Education, participating students and faculty concentrate on engineering education and research by supporting study abroad. There are total of ten universities participating in the project: two U.S. universities Embry-Riddle and the University of Central Florida in partnership with two from Brasil (Universidade Federal, Rio de Janeiro and Pontifícia Universidade Católica, Rio Grande do Sul), one from France (Université Joseph Fourier Grenoble, Grenoble), one in Czech Republic (Brno University of Technology, Brno), one in Poland (AGH University of Science and Technology, Krakow), two in Spain (University of Jaen, Jaen and University of Cantabria, Cantaberia), and one in Sweden (University of Jonkoping, Jonkoping). As of now we exchanged over 50 students and supported multiple faculty visits.
