Wednesday, May 23, at 12 noon, U.S. Eastern time
Engineering is one of the most global of professions, yet few students majoring in the field study abroad. For one university, the solution proved to be a joint-degree program, in which students take both engineering and a foreign language before heading overseas for a year to study and work. And as a result, interest in foreign languages at the university is booming.
Sigrid Berka is executive director of the International Engineering Program at the University of Rhode Island.
