Cultural Competency Certificate

The College is developing a comprehensive Cultural Competency Certificate Program for Iowa engineers to better perform in a global society. The students completing the program will develop their own personal toolset to remain culturally sensitive while on technical projects.

The certificate program includes a number of steps:

  • First-Year Seminar Presentations
  • Identification of a Technical Cultural Immersion Experience outside of the student’s cultural ‘comfort zone’
  • Pre-Immersion Preparation
  • Cross-Cultural Experiential Immersion through projects in both national and international settings
  • Post Immersion Toolbox development
