Consider an opportunity to do research abroad! International research offers you the opportunity to grow as an engineer as well as increase your global awareness. Employers are seeking engineers who are able to work in worldwide locations. Doing research abroad will allow you to apply your engineering skills in a practical way and also allow you to build skills in business and cultural relations.
