Transnational engineering education requires teachers that are able to merge the unique engineering needs of their local country with best practices and techniques for fostering global awareness and preparedness in engineering students. Rapid computerization and the opening of previously closed markets helped the large multi-national corporation become a common model for engineering in the twenty-first century. Graduates must understand that social, cultural, economic, and political differences will affect and shape their careers in ways that previous generations of engineers may not have faced. Mandatory requirements help ensure that students receive opportunities for transnational study or, at the least, exposure to transnational topics. Engineering educators, however, must also be prepared. Engineering professional societies provide substantial continuing education, peer-networking, reference literature, and humanitarian opportunities to help educators stay current and prepared to talk about topics and trends in global engineering. In this paper, the IEEE and the IEEE Education Society are presented as examples of such transnational cooperation

      TISP - Teacher In-Service Program Training
      where IEEE is trying to improve the total worldwide number of young students attracted to study engineering
      based on a "train the trainers" model. It focuses on helping teachers in the secondary level acquire the capacities and competences to introduce engineering in the classroom

    • 94. TISP
      General program was initiated and developed inside the IEEE headquarters
      Plan for the local implementation is developed at the local section site
      Sharing and adapting at the same time the most successful practices from other geographic areas

      Local flavor based on their geographical area when developing examples and methods:
      Some places: Robots (because local industry)
      Others: Wi-Fi or communications systems
      Developing countries: infrastructure and food production

      In addition to technical knowledge, today's engineering educators must provide students with key knowledge of
      cultural, social, and political issues
      needed to succeed in the modern
      global engineering marketplace

      This requires a level of continuing education for teachers
      International engineering professional societies plan and implement a number of continuing education products that can help educators stay current

      As an example, IEEE
      Publishes standards and best practices published
      To help educators ensure worldwide continuity
      In some countries, IEEE plays a role in curriculum design and accreditation
