The Innovation Fund grant, funded by ExxonMobil, allows 10 students from the College of Engineering & Computer Science and 10 CETYS Universidad students to travel to each other’s universities. During that time, students will gain intercultural skills critical for today’s global workforce by participating in lectures and presenting projects at an international research symposium.

The program is made possible by a grant from the ExxonMobil-sponsored Innovation Fund and matching funds from Cal State Fullerton. Binod Tiwari, professor of civil engineering and director of the immersion program, says, “This grant will foster an innovative curricular study abroad opportunity for engineering students, who will participate in well-designed, collaborative, and project-based learning experiences.”
