International partnerships

Under the leadership of Dean Farshad Fotouhi, the college has built upon its international presence and ramped up efforts to prepare students for a global workplace, while strengthening ties with industry and educational institutions throughout the world. College faculty members are well-known international experts and have promoted engineering education in other countries, as well as welcomed visiting international scholars to campus, resulting in relationships with overseas institutions.

Engineering students can gain research and industry experience abroad at Fuzhou University, the Zhejiang University of Technology (ZJUT), the Shenzhen Institutes of Advanced Technology, Xi'an Jiaotang University, Polytechnic of Nantes, France, and the Technical University of Graz, Austria. The college currently is in discussions with additional institutions in Europe and South America about creating similar opportunities for even more students.
