International Scholars Program

Infographic of global skills and benefitsThe International Scholars Program (ISP) is an exciting graduation distinction available to all engineering undergraduate students. Earn a graduation medallion by approaching your education with a global lens through the completion of international coursework, international experience, language learning and co-curricular activities.

Keep in mind that if you complete a study abroad as your international experience, the courses you take during your study abroad count toward the coursework requirement. The International Scholars Program is a great bridge between international interests and preparing for a career where you will be part of a global workforce.

Find out more about how you can add this global distinction to your degree by attending an International Scholars Program info session or by reaching out to an ISP advisor. Define your international learning inside and outside the classroom by joining the International Scholars Program!
