Tulsa, Oklahoma – The University of Tulsa proudly hosted the prestigious Global Engineering Education Exchange (Global E3) 2024 meeting, bringing together representatives from more than 35 universities around the world. The event focused on the intersections between engineering education, innovation and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

During the three-day conference, Global E3 members engaged in discussions on curriculum internationalization in engineering education and explored innovative approaches to global learning opportunities for future engineers. Distinguished keynote speakers included:

  • Kemi Ladeji-Osias, Deputy Division Director for Education and Engineering Centers at the National Science Foundation
  • Chad Raduege, executive director of the Oklahoma Cyber ​​Innovation Institute
  • Ken McQueen, Oklahoma Secretary of Energy and Environment

The conference also served as a platform to highlight UTulsa’s research prowess in the energy and cyber fields.

Additionally, members had the opportunity to explore the vibrant city of Tulsa by visiting iconic landmarks such as the Gathering Place, Greenwood Rising and Mother Road Market.

The E3 Global Consortium, established in 1995, is composed of more than 70 universities from 20 countries. Administered by the Institute of International Education in New York, Global E3 facilitates semester or year-long exchange studies for engineering students at member organizations through its consortium-based program. Annually, the Global E3 program hosts approximately 250-300 student participants.

The University of Tulsa has been a proud member of Global E3 since 2009. More than 20 UTulsa students have benefited from this partnership, with recent exchange programs in Egypt and South Korea. For more information, please visit the university’s Center for Global Engagement.
