Global Engineering RAP

Comunidad---Globalización---Tecnología informática

Welcome to the Global Engineering Residential Academic Program

Welcome to our website and to the University of Colorado at Boulder's many living and learning options.  

Kttredge Central main entrance

The new Kittredge Central residence hall--just 4 minutes on foot from the Engineering Center--opened in August 2013. Global Engineering RAP members and the Faculty Director and her family live here.

As Faculty Director of the Global Engineering Residential Academic Program CU, I invite you to consider whether living in a community which helps you to practice and improve your Spanish language skills while focusing on global engineering projects and IT-driven intercultural communication matches your life and career goals.  Esta comunidad nos proporciona la oportunidad de vivir la ingeniería global, de aprender el vocabulario técnico de varios campos de especialización y de aprender a comunicarnos con colaboradores internacionales en proyectos técnicos mediante tecnologías informáticas emergentes.

The type of community we are creating involves much more than just being good at science and math. Although that is clearly part of it, we are also looking for students who:
  • want more from their education than technical skills
  • are already or want to become fluent in Spanish
  • want to learn how to leverage the latest in international telecommunications tools for working on collaborative international development projects
  • want to be part of building a community that critically engages the needs of the world 
  • want to be part of building a community in which students work together and support each other  as well-rounded individuals
  • care more about having real global impact than meeting minimum requirements 
  • want to have the type of fun that comes from collaborating using cool emerging technologies
After looking at our website, please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you might have, and I will get back to you quickly:

The College of Engineering sees the 3 Engineering Residential Academic Programs as so important to your success in Engineering that we will provide a $500.00 scholarship to you for participating in any one of them.  Global Engineering RAP is the newest RAP program.
