International Engineering Programs

Penn State is a global university educating students from around the world. The mission of the Penn State International Engineering Programs (IEP) is to further connections between Penn State domestic students and Penn State students from abroad, so both can create and benefit from meaningful interactions. We strive for graduating students who have a global mindset and are globally and culturally competent. We believe that international students are vital to the intellectual life of the University and to its education, research, and diversity mission. We are here to support the College of Engineering international students’ journey at Penn State and promote cross-cultural sharing and understanding among all of our students.

IEP partners with various units at the college- and University-level to enhance opportunities for international student development. Get involved and strengthen your success with International Engineering Programs!

Penn State offers endless resources to support our linguistically and culturally diverse students in academic and cultural adjustments. We want you to succeed academically and stay well physically, mentally, and emotionally.
