“College” is not bad

Standard

So many international students assume that if it is a "college" it cannot be as good as a university. Wrong. Look for colleges like Harvey Mudd that focus on global experiences. Your employers will love you!
 
Harvey Mudd College: Global Clinic Program

Recognizing that the world is becoming increasingly "flat," HMC’s Department of Engineering began the Global Clinic Program in 2005 to prepare students for the future challenges of functioning as innovative engineers and scientists in a global context. Built upon HMC’s internationally recognized Clinic Program, the Global Clinic plans to support long-term sponsored engineering and science projects in which teams of Harvey Mudd College students collaborate with teams of students from partnering schools in Central and South America, Asia and Europe.

The Global Clinic Program incorporates intensive language instruction and immersion in the culture of the region during an extended visit to the partner school. During a one-month visit to each partner school, the student teams work on developing the project plan and collaborate with faculty advisors and company members of the team. HMC students and their international collaborators stay fully engaged during the academic year, participating in weekly video/audio conferences, collaborative presentations and design reviews at the sponsors’ facilities.
