Jain, Ravi K.; Elliott, Gayle G.; Jain, Terumi Takahashi
The goals of the Trans European Mobility Program for University Students (TEMPUS) project include developing curriculum and implementing language and culture training programs with a focus on German and Japanese, and training engineers who have a global perspective. This document contains an executive summary in addition to the full length report on the accomplishments of the project. The project report provides an overview of project activities and accomplishments, a section that traces the project from problem definition to project conclusion and discusses project pitfalls. Additionally, information on the background and origins of the project organized by phases, a full description of the project and its workshops, and evaluation and project results are provided. The majority of the document is comprised of three appendices. Appendix 1 contains eight exhibits, including such areas as: college of engineering student demographics, International Engineering Program (IEP) schedule, both the German focus and the Japanese focus course descriptions, and companies utilizing IEP students in overseas internships. Appendix 2 discusses the course syllabi for both the German and Japanese language training. Appendix 3 presents course evaluations submitted by the student participants on the effectiveness of the the project. (DDR)
