WHAT’S HAPPENING NOW?

  • New Courses

  • New Degrees

  • For Profit Universities

  • Virtual Classrooms

  • Military Requirements

  • Alliances and Consortia (Co-opetition)


Training and education is a trillion dollar market worldwide

CURRENT TRENDS

  • Increasing population of non-traditional students

  • Students have different objectives

    • degree

    • certificate

    • professional development

  • Students have wide variety of backgrounds

    • note that we offer courses in over 60 locations

  • Students have different “needs” to know

    • one topic may be more important now than another

  • Students may need to know “parts” from different courses to support them professionally

  • Students may have different learning styles and abilities

    • some can learn specific material faster than others


In short, there is a shift from seeking degrees to seeking “Learning”

“Learning” encompasses:

  • Training

  • Education

  • Performance Mentoring

TRENDS/ISSUES OF MAJOR CONCERN IDENTIFIED IN A SURVEY OF 300 CEO’s

  • Globalization (94%)

  • Improving knowledge management (88%)

  • Cost and cycle time reduction (79%)

  • Improving supply chains globally (78%)

  • Manufacturing at multiple locations in many countries (76%)

  • Managing the use of more part-time, temporary, and contract workers (71%)


  • Global Engineering

  • Upper division cluster

  • Minor

  • MSE Global Engineering


CLUSTER

MINOR

Just add an internship

Take just three courses

…and take on the world

…and add GLOBAL to your resume

TAKE THESE TWO…

  • Global Engineering and Project Management

  • Communication Across Cultures

  • …THEN CHOOSE ONE MORE..

  • International Business Operations

  • Sustainable Development

  • World Resources

Internship in Global Engineering

  • Our Global Engineering Cluster and Minor Provide you with

  • …an understanding of the interconnected context of global markets, transnational corporate operations, and global technology standards

  • …an understanding of the global nature of natural resources and their protection

  • …exposure to various international regulatory bodies and standards

  • Global Engineering gives you the knowledge to work productively in an environment that encompasses different cultures,business practices, resources,communications, and engineering practices

  • DEGREE STRUCTURE

  • Each institution guarantees a specific engineering specialization offered in English in a given semester

  • Students must take specialization semesters at two institutions (24 credit hours)

  • Students must do comprehensive project at any of the institutions (6 credit hours)

  • ODU will award Master of Engineering to any student who does a specialization semester at ODU

  • In addition to any M.Sc. Degree awarded by partner institutions

  • Thus, in some cases, students will be awarded both a U.S. and European degree

  • FINANCIAL ASPECTS

  • INHEE Students will be treated as in state ODU students

  • ODU students will be treated as local INHEE students

  • In most cases, ODU students will not pay tuition while studying at an INHEE institution

WHO NEEDS TO KNOW?

  • Current Students

    • In appropriate class

  • Current Practitioners

    • On the job (needs to know NOW)


WHO KNOWS?

  • Isolated “narrow” experts (research driven)

  • Distributed across multiple institutions


CHALLENGE

  • Bring knowledge needed, when needed, to where it is needed

  • By the best authorities

  • In the most effective and efficient manner possible
