The School of MIME offers unique opportunities for developing a global engineering skill set:
Humanitarian Engineering (HEST)
The Humanitarian Engineering Program at Oregon State seeks to cultivate science and engineering-based solutions that provide access to basic human needs, enhance quality of life, and advance the level of community resilience in the local and global community. We offer both undergraduate and graduate opportunities at Oregon State, including: an undergraduate humanitarian engineering minor; graduate fellowships, dedicated coursework in humanitarian engineering, science and technology (HEST); Capstone Design projects, research opportunities and more.
For more information, visit the HEST website.
Global Formula Racing
Global Formula Racing (GFR) is the first global collaboration of its kind in the history of U.S. and EU student Formula racing. SIx thousand miles and nine time zones apart, students at OSU and Duale Hochschule Baden-Württemberg-Ravensburg in Germany jointly design, build, and test two racing vehicles (combustion and electric), one at each school. In 2010, 2011, and 2012, GFR prevailed in the Michigan FSAE competition, qualifying them as back-to-back-to-back national champions. They also logged numerous wins on the European circuit.
For more information, visit the GFR Website – and be sure to watch the Relentless documentary about our champion racing team.
Atlantis Bachelor Program: International Dual Degree in Mechanical Engineering and Material Sciences
Atlantis is a transatlantic program leading to BS degrees in materials science and mechanical engineering. School of MIME participants spend their first two years at Oregon State, their third year in Germany or Sweden (where they complete their Materials Science degree requirements), and their final year back at Oregon State, where they complete their Mechanical Engineering degree requirements.

And There's More!
MIME students interested in work and travel abroad should look into the Oregon University System's IE3 Global Internships program and other opportunities described on the College of Engineering's International Study page. Participation in the Oregon State Student Chapter of Engineers without Borders is also an excellent way to gain global engineering exposure and experience.
