Facilitating Mobility for Engineering Majors: Successful Partnerships between Faculty and Education Abroad Professionals

74 views

Published on

Learn best practices for how your institution should work internally to recruit, advise, approve courses, and award credits, all of which are critical components for implementing successful study abroad programs for engineering students. We'll also highlight the importance of collaboration between faculty and study abroad advising offices and will illustrate how this collaboration can lead to additional opportunities for universities.

  10. 10. MUAS in a nutshell Second largest University of Applied Sciences in Germany 17,500 students (winter term 2016/17) About 2/3 Engineering students 14 departments (8 Engineering) Over 80 study programmes (Bachelor and Master) 10
  11. 11. International@MUAS 11 About 200 partner universities worldwide Member in international consortia and networks: e.g. UAS7, Global E3 Internationalization Strategy 2015-18: International Experiences of Students and Staff (In and Out) Intercultural Competence „at home“ (internationalisation@home) International Networks and Cooperations in Teaching and Research, Strategic Partnerships International Engineering Programs: Semester exchange (bilateral, consortia) Courses in English Summer Schools
  12. 12. From the idea to the implementation: Int’l Engineering Certificate 12 Creating (semester) certificates at University of Pittsburgh and Clemson University in Automotive and Aerospace Engineering In cooperation with the Department of Mechanical, Automotive and Aerospace Engineering at MUAS As a result of faculty idea and involvement and partnership with the Global E3 program Offering courses that are not offered in Pittsburgh or Clemson Interest of other (GE3) universities
  13. 13. From the idea to the implementation: Int’l Engineering Certificate 13 Create a MUAS Certificate for international exchange and German students: Subject-related courses plus international/intercultural components Based on the existing course catalogue from the MUAS “Courses in English (CiE)”- program create a package of existing CiE to one certificate in order to make it more attractive and “easier” for the students Pilot with Department of Mechanical, Automotive and Aerospace Engineering Start planned for summer semester 2017
  14. 14. Who’s Involved 14
  15. 15. Objectives and Benefits 15 Promote an international experience for engineering students by working together (faculty and International Office) Enhance the intercultural/international competence of students (from abroad and at home) MUAS  Promote the international profile and reputation of MUAS and the department(s) and respond to MUAS Internationalization Strategy  Create an attractive “package” and attract more (incoming) engineering students Partner Universities:  Create an interesting study abroad option in Munich, promote more interest in the exchange programs (e.g. GE3) and offer options/courses at MUAS that home university doesn’t offer
  16. 16. Lessons Learned 16 “Champion/s” at department(s), motivation and personal commitment of the faculty and staff are necessary Facilitator/ project leader in administration/study abroad office is necessary Guarantee, commitment of the department for the courses, long term planning Sufficient participation in the courses and motivation of the German students Promotion and marketing (through GE3 network) Patience (?): it might take some time to get it promoted and successfully run
