    Abstract

    Global and collaborative engineering projects across borders are reality in industry today. However, most of the universities fight with different obstacles to develop and train international collaboration skills in engineering programs. In this paper, we present different methods to prepare students and faculty for globalization. All methods we describe to train international/global skills have advantages and disadvantages. In this paper, we present our experience and students’ opinion on international training. We continuously develop all the named forms of international collaboration and work on to include more faculty members in this work. Our goal is to develop needed global, multicultural and interdisciplinary skills in engineering programs, prepare students for their future jobs in global world and increase the faculty engagement in international collaboration.
