Global Programs

Your Connection to the World of Engineering

In a world that grows increasingly smaller, all engineers will have to work on an international level throughout their careers. Get a head start that will help in all of your endeavors and join a global program through the Division of Engineering Leadership and Professional Practice—the centralized office for international activity for the Case School of Engineering.

Currently, CSE faculty are researching, teaching classes, and participating in other global partnerships in 33 different countries on six continents. As events continue to change and engineering needs evolve, so do our global program offerings. Some current opportunities include:

Why go abroad?

  • Gain valuable experience – Expand your viewpoint and skillset through classes, tours, and activities at an international university.

  • Develop cultural awareness – Successfully compete in the international job market from experience working with international staff and students.

  • Increase your professional network – Connect with students and staff to broaden your career possibilities.

  • Enrich your classroom education – Develop language and cultural competency to mesh with courses on international topics.
