Education Abroad for Civil, Electrical, Industrial, & Mechanical Engineering
WHY STUDY ENGINEERING ABROAD?
No matter the field of engineering, there is a high probability that engineers will work on an international level at some point in their career. Whether it is collaborating with professionals or clients from around the world, teaching abroad, or taking part in an overseas project, opportunities for engineers are increasingly global. Incorporating an international experience in a UW-Platteville engineering degree increases students' access to knowledge and theory from around the world and enables future engineers to learn and share new approaches to engineering education and problem solving.
Upon graduation, having international experience on a resume can also help distinguish applicants in the competitive job market. It can help demonstrate a global perspective of the field and real-world issues, flexibility and adaptability, and knowledge of and openness to other cultures.
