Engineering graduates must not only develop technical skills for success within their career but they must also develop global competence to interact effectively in today’s increasingly interconnected world. Beginning in 2008, a group of universities from different parts of the world partnered together with a goal of better preparing global engineering graduates. This resulted in a culturally immersive international product development and design experience that takes place each summer. Students primarily from universities within the USA travel to the National University of Singapore for an intensive two and one-half week design interaction in late May and Early June. Professors from participating universities that include the National University of Singapore (NUS), Penn State University (PSU), Brigham Young University (BYU), and Brigham Young University-Idaho (BYU-I) co-teach the program.
