There is a growing demand for engineering graduates with an international background.  Studying abroad will enhance your academic experience and leave you well prepared to work and live in today’s globalized society.  Studying and living in a foreign culture can help to develop the “soft skills” necessary to succeed as an engineer that are not often taught in the classroom.
