Director's Message

Dear Global Engineers,


Since 2003, the Purdue GEARE program has been the premier global engineering training program in the U.S.. The GEARE program combines the engineering curriculum with language study, study abroad, professional experiences, and global projects. Structured activities and mentorship provided by the program are proven to enhance student’s global competencies. These global competencies have enhanced students career possibilities, pushed students to higher levels of education, and have led to overseas work after graduation.


Since 2014, it has been my great pleasure to coordinate this program and interact with its students. In my opinion, there is no greater satisfaction than being part of students development as they achieve their professional and personal goals. I look forward to interacting with many future students and following the success of our alums.


This is a student run website aimed at providing advice for current students preparing for international study and work, building a strong network of globally minded engineers, and a place to share the stories and accomplishments of our students and alums. I invite you to visit the site and come back often to keep up with the latest news, help with your global experience, and build your network.
