Program Description:
What is Global E³:
Global E³ is an exchange program for engineering students: a student can study abroad while continuing to pay tuition at home. With member universities in 24 countries, students at over 70 universities have the opportunity to study abroad. Global E³ exchanges about 250-300 students a year.

Recognizing a growing demand for internationally-experienced engineering graduates, a group of leading universities around the world established the Global E3 in 1995. Global E3 allows engineering students at member universities to enjoy a fulfilling study abroad experience.Through participation in the program, Global E3 graduates gain the necessary foreign language ability, cross-cultural skills, and professional experience to excel in the multinational/multicultural business environment of the 21st century.

How Does Global E³ Work:
Top engineering students from Participating Institutions apply to study abroad for up to 1 year.
The student's advisor forwards the application to the program administrators (IIE).
The program administrators work with participating institutions to place students at universities in the host countries.
