Abstract: In an increasingly complex, interconnected, and globalized economy, engineers require intercultural competencies. This paper describes a unique international experience program composed of students and faculty from multiple universities and engineering firms, in which student teams collaborate on technical projects. We investigate students’ understanding of intercultural competencies to ascertain the impact of our program on their perceptions of intercultural values and virtual teamwork. We discovered that integrating intercultural content with virtual international projects was a successful approach for helping these students build intercultural competencies and expand their engineering project knowledge and experiences.
