Global Opportunities and Resources

At CIT we want our students to have a truly global education. That might mean studying or working abroad. It can also mean a whole host of other things from internationally-focused coursework to volunteering in another country to learning from fellow classmates' global experiences. We hope the following links and the rest of our site will help you get started. You can also contact your CIT advisor to discuss how global opportunities can fit into your engineering education.
