Engineering 290: Engineering in a Global & Societal Context
At Bucknell, engineers can study abroad. Engineering 290: Engineering in a Global & Societal Context is a three-week, faculty-led study abroad course where students experience the global and societal context of engineering in countries around the world. We’ve explored the interaction of engineering and culture on six continents, including in China, Costa Rica, Chile, Iceland, Ghana, Brazil and New Zealand.
The L.E.A.D. Engineer speaker series is designed to cultivate global citizens who contribute to innovative solutions in a changing world. Focused on the four competencies that define L.E.A.D. (Leadership, Ethics, Appreciative Inclusion, Design Innovation), the program allows students to learn from experienced engineering alumni and industry professionals about the importance of the four competencies and how they can be applied in a professional setting. The program has a goal of strengthening the interpersonal skills needed to solve the problems facing our global society. For more information, contact:
