Abstract

In this paper, we present three different mechanisms for globalising engineering education: (1) student and staff exchanges, (2) joint courses, where the students work in globally distributed teams; and (3) joint degree programmes.
We argue that the three mechanisms complement each other and that successful globalisation within an institution can be archived by combining the three.
Our argument is based on the experiences of two north European universities, who successfully globalise their education.
