International Study Abroad in Engineering/Industrial Technology: Through the Eyes of Students
Dyrenfurth, Michael; Herrick, Robert; McHale, Donal; Hayes, Richard; Barnes, James
Faculty and programs in engineering/industrial technology often promote international exchange and study abroad as a desirable component of a university experience— particularly in this increasingly globalized world. But, what do students who have actually had such experiences perceive? How do they view such experiences, before, during and after the event? The following paper evolved from the experiences of four universities collaborating on an EU-FIPSE funded Atlantis project called DETECT that consist of the partnerships of four Engineering/Technology Educational institutions; Hochschule Darmstadt in Germany, Dublin Institute of Technology in Ireland, and Pennsylvania State University & Purdue University from the USA.
