Advanced Global Technology Minor


In order to prepare graduates for professions in a global and societal context, the Purdue Polytechnic Institute adopted minimum global requirements in the Fall of 2017. Knowing that not every student will go abroad during their experience at Purdue, the Polytechnic has deliberately established plans of study, intercultural activities, and an overall learning environment in order to foster higher levels of global and cultural awareness.  This learning philosophy is supported through formal assessments and analyses of student experiences, recommended coursework and experiences within student plans of study promoting the global and cultural capacity among all students.  

The Polytechnic Minor in Advanced Global Technology includes a total of 15 credit hours. The overall minor has coursework and a global experience component. Students can achieve the minor without going overseas by participating in a 6 week international collaborative project via a formalized classroom activity.
