    Abstract

    The world has become a fundamentally different place than it was when most engineering technology (ET) curricula were devised and implemented. Graduates must interact in a global environment, as international corporations are the rule in virtually any sector where ET graduates seek jobs: electronics, automotive, aerospace, consumer goods, energy. Unfortunately, what graduates need to compete in those environments is not yet a significant part of many engineering technology programs. Engineering technology programs in the U.S. must adapt to the globalization of industry, and prepare faculty and students to face these new challenges. After setting the larger stage of engineering technology education in a global environment, specific details relating to Arizona State University, Brigham Young University, and Purdue University's activities towards meeting this challenge are detailed.
