Abstract: For an institution with limited resources, sending students abroad may not be a realistic option. Therefore, the engineering school embraced a series of cost-efficient initiatives to bring international education to local students, such as attracting prominent international scholars to teach courses jointly with local faculty. This session describes those initiatives, the restructuring introduced to integrate student and faculty participation, the challenges faced and solutions devised, the degree to which the goals were achieved, the assessment tools used, and the effort’s sustainability in the resource-limited environment of a third-world country. The model’s applicability to other environments is also addressed.
