All meetings and sessions are taking place at the Hilton Hotel, Downtown Lexington, KY, unless noted otherwise.
Schedule at a Glance
Pre-colloquium Workshops, Wednesday, November 6, 2-5 pm:
1) Getting started in International Engineering Education
Designed to bring the wisdom and experience of established international engineering programs to those seeking to launch new initiatives. What are the realistic models? Wat are the challenges and hurdles? What are the best strategies for success? How does one build an internship program or a study abroad exchange? The value of an international Living and Learning Community? How can we make it work?
2) Attributes of the Global Engineer
Led by ASEE’s Corporate Member Council’s Special Interest Group for International Engineering Education, a global online survey was launched to validate the performance and proficiency levels of each attribute, including the stages at which attributes were essential to the preparation, performance, and employability of global engineers. Furthermore, a series of global focus groups in various regions of the world have been held for the purpose of clarifying and defining the attributes, and for discussing ways in which the attributes can be introduced, reinforced, and assessed in the preparation and development of future engineers.
6:00 pm: UK Education Abroad is hosting the Welcome Reception at the Hilton Downtown Lexington

3:15-4:45: Models for Study Abroad
Using the expertise of leaders in the field, we will present various models that have been successful used in getting engineers overseas including the pros and cons of becoming a member of a consortium. We will also discuss developing individual bilateral agreements with institutions including suggestions on how to best strategize in choosing partners based upon the goals of your institution. Other student mobility models such as short term, faculty led and research abroad models will be discussed by the panelists as well as development of dual degree programs. If time permits we would like to divide the audience into small groups in order to brainstorm how to solve programmatic issues on their individual campuses.

How to develop Language Programs for Engineering Students
Gain insight on developing language competency for engineering and science. Join experts in the field to hear how they have developed languages, such as Japanese at University of Cincinnati, German at Northern Arizona and University of Rhode Island. How much language does an engineer need to study or work abroad? When and how can this be integrated into the curriculum? How can you make the case to your faculty and deans, and how can you fund additional language training?
