Global Engineers can function effectively on global teams in distance and face-to-face project work. GEARE’s Global Design Team requirement enables students to further develop their global competencies.

The Global Design Team requirement can be fulfilled in one of the following 3 ways:

  1. Examine a problem that relates to global challenges
  2. Include international students or host-country nationals on the team
  3. Participate in Global Engineering Sponsored Design Teams

Students may combine the Global Design Team Project with their Senior Design Team Project.
