Engineering International Programs

The Engineering International Programs team is here to help with general questions as well as more in-depth advising about the global experiences process.   We are normally located in 152 Benedum Hall but we are working remotely for the Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 term. 

If you're not sure how to get started, have general questions, or you want a broad view of all of your options, we are happy to help! You can use our Pathways or Zoom drop-in hours (see below) or send us an email at
