Abstract

Comprehensive globalization in engineering design and manufacturing in the last decades has led to fundamental new imperatives, as we consider how to effectively train and prepare our Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) workforce to succeed in this diverse, multicultural, widely-distributed, multi-lingual research, design and production network. In order to take STEM internationalization to the next level, we must make internationalized tracks available as a regular, attractive option to all STEM majors; doing this efficiently will require developing a comprehensive, uniform approach to STEM internationalization at the institutional level. In this paper, we discuss our development of the Global Science and Engineering Program (GSEP), a broad internationalization initiative uniformly spanning all engineering, math, and natural science programs offered at Northern Arizona University. To help pave the way for others, we pay particular attention to critical GSEP design features and rationale.
