Global Engineering Education

Study abroad and other global experiences to elevate your education

Fulton Schools Global

Gain a global perspective

Global learning experiences provide opportunities for you to develop intercultural competencies and understand professional practices used outside the United States.

You can become competitive in a global job market and learn to work effectively with people who may define problems in different ways.

Study abroad and gain so much more than a trip abroad!
