Global and Local Engagement

Penn Engineering prepares all of its students to be well-rounded, global citizens, embracing the mission of the University to look beyond campus to identify where and how to make a difference. A tenet of the Penn Compact 2020, Impact seeks to bring Penn’s knowledge and practice to bear on key local, national, and global issues in order to help more people lead healthy, prosperous lives. Whether the problem is water supply, infrastructure needs, access to education and technology or availability of health care, our engineers are uniquely positioned to change the world in concrete, tangible ways. Opportunities exist for members of the Penn Engineering community to engage in programs in the Philadelphia area, the United States or abroad.
