Engineers need intercultural competences too

Søren Jensen, Lecturer in Technology and Innovation, ITI (Institut for Teknologi og Innovation), TEK
On average the IDE section at TEK sends approximately 50% of a cohort of engineering students abroad for an exchange semester. This project aims at dealing with the 50% of the students who stay at home and how we can activate the incoming exchange students in the internationalisation of the home students. Moreover, we would like to develop a framework of progressive steps during the first 4 semesters where international understanding is incorporated in the courses and project work.

Here you can read Søren’s project action plan and see the steps we took to co-develop the project and its outcomes. The action plan supplements the video and provides concrete guidance on how to put such a project into practice.
