Global Engineers: Working Across Cultures
Innovation is driven by diversity and working across cultures in engineering has now become the norm in the UK and around the world.

Being able to work efficiently in multinational teams requires far more preparation than just speaking the same language. Here at the Language Unit, we know that our engineering students need more than acquiring foreign language skills: that is why we provide them with intercultural training. We believe that intercultural competence will enable them to work collaboratively while studying in Cambridge, and will also help them immensely in their future career – whether working in the UK or abroad.
This free event is a chance for engineering companies in and around Cambridge to meet us and experience how we equip our students in intercultural competence.
We would like to invite all engineers, native and non-native speakers of English, to meet and exchange experiences about working across cultures, and learn more about developing cultural competence.
The Department of Engineering is the largest department in the University of Cambridge, representing approximately 10% of the University's activities by the majority of common metrics, and is one of Europe's largest integrated engineering departments.
