The education of the 21st century engineering student requires a global perspective and practical experience. In 2007, the department launched a program to enhance and enrich the experience of undergraduate students, and provide a focused International Experience (E33 EECE 411) to study issues related to energy and the environment in a global context and develop teamwork and leadership skills. Each year, students are selected for this program that will be guided by faculty from the Department of Energy, Environmental & Chemical Engineering. The highlight of the class is a visit to a city where partner schools of the McDonnell Academy are located. Students then register for the class in the following semester and engage in project discussions, presentations and report writing.
