Guide to engineering library resources with a broad geographical coverage and a global perspective.

The global engineer

Engineering education at Princeton aims to prepare graduates of Engineering programs to become global citizens who will find innovative solutions for the complex issues facing our global society. Princeton graduates are increasingly called upon to take on international assignments, thus becoming global engineers.

Besides high professional competency, being able to work in a foreign country requires that one speaks the official language and be familiar with the cultural, ethical, business and technical practices and expectations of that country. This guide attempts to collect and present resources from the library's vast collections to assist Princeton engineering students in their endeavor to prepare for a global professional experience.
