2 Internationalisation – why do it? Focus areas nInternationally qualified graduates n Focus on the integration of international perspectives in engineering education at the Faculty (DSMI) n Internationalisation at home (international study environment) n Attract students and teachers from abroad n Send students and teachers abroad nMarketing and recruitment abroad in relation to full-degree students Faculty of Engineering

3 Challenges: Outbound students Strategic focus on sending more students abroad. The aim is a 10 % increase per year. Between 60 and 100 students go abroad every year on Exchange at partner universities Internships in companies abroad (the majority) Increase in no. of students seeking opportunities abroad Faculty of Engineering

4 Intercultural competence Faculty of Engineering

5 Expected student behaviour The student role: Responsible for their own learning process, this means that students are expected to… -define problems -analyze problems in a critical way -participate in class and group discussions -make decisions and find arguments for that decision -structure work and time -Respect other people’s opinions and time Faculty of Engineering

6 Development of courses of exchange students Aim -All (most) courses with a mix of degree and exchange students What will this mean -Better integration of internationalisation at the Faculty -Increased benefit for Danish students -Increased benefit for international students Requirements -Very good English language skills -Very good academic skills -Serious attitude towards studies Necessary if we force the degree students to work in groups with exchange students.
