Graduates from this program earn two degrees simultaneously: a B.S. in an engineering discipline and a B.A. in Chinese, French, German or Spanish. By combining the power of a strong engineering program, immersion in a foreign language and culture and a year abroad, the five-year program graduates students prepared for rewarding careers in a diverse array of fields around the world.

The International Engineering Programs provides current students with resources to learn beyond the classroom. Immersion in a foreign country offers a chance for students to gain exciting and new knowledge, resulting in a life-changing experience. The School of Engineering is also home to various number of international students who wish to promote cross-cultural interactions among students of all nationalities and background.
