The Globex Julmester Program of the College of Engineering (COE) is a professional mobility program with a worldwide exchange of students from all disciplines of study. The program has been started in COE in every summer since 2012, which provides an opportunity for students from all over the world to attend courses taught by global university faculties.
This year, to enhance students’ global and professional experience, the Globex Julmester will offer courses that focus on the core elements of our generation: engineering & science, engineering finance & entrepreneurship and society & globalization. Engineering and science generate new knowledge and skills for society to advance and prosper (10 engineering/science courses). To convert into useful products, the acquired knowledge and skills need to be commercialized through innovation and entrepreneurship (2 engineering finance & entrepreneurship courses). Societies are being profoundly impacted by China, as it grows to become the world’s largest economy, so Globex offers students an opportunity to study China and its peoples (3 China focused courses). Finally, there’s a course which covers a scientific journey of over 14 billion years of history to help students learn from their past as they move forward into the future.
The altogether 16 courses will be taught by professors from many renowned universities, including UC-Irvine, University of Texas Austin (USA), University of Hong Kong, University of Ottawa (Canada), Seoul National University (Korea), Mines ParisTech (France), King’s College London (UK), and Chulalongkorn University (Thailand).
