An International Engineering Student and Faculty Exchange Program

Mark Polczynski, Marquette University

Globalization is producing significant changes in the engineering profession. The Marquette University College of Engineering is evaluating the deployment of industry’s global model for engineering and innovation in the university environment, examining ways that cooperation with international institutions can significantly improve the effectiveness of teaching, research, and research commercialization. A key element of this effort is the development of an International Engineering Student and Faculty Exchange Program (IESFEP) to:
1) Create an international learning and research environment that prepares students to effectively function on global entrepreneurial teams, 2) Leverage R&D capabilities and researchers at partner schools to
significantly augment results and commercialization of the college’s R&D programs, 3) Generate global technology-oriented business opportunities through cooperative student and faculty entrepreneurial
project teams, 4) Provide high-relevance extracurricular educational opportunities for students and faculty.
