Descripción
In today¿s globalized economy there is a growing need for adaptable and highly qualified engineers who can respond rapidly to unexpected changes in the companies' environment and provide the solutions or results that are required from them. It is generally accepted that engineers, besides having a sound technical knowledge and a certain degree of specialization, should be provided with a number of managerial skills which can be a very valuable asset in order to improve their professional performance. A very ambitious initiative has been launched in the European Union which enables graduate engineering students from countries outside this geographic region to continue their technical education in top ranking European universities. Scholars from third country institutions are also invited to participate. Funds for scholarships provided by the European Commission are available through the Erasmus Mundus program. This program has been operating for a few years only, but some of the benefits for all the participants involved: students, scholars and institutions can already be perceived. The value that derives from these multilateral exchanges is not limited to diffusion of technical knowledge but also includes other aspects of engineering education of fundamental importance in a global economy, such as exposure to different cultures, network building and cooperation issues, among others.
