Today’s industry is becoming increasingly global. In Europe more than 95 % of companies are small and medium enterprises (SMEs) where interdisciplinarity is a must for workforce. This situation requires graduates who can succeed in an international environment, but are also familiar with the requirements of the home market and national culture. In this context, and as understood in the program on hand, global competences have to comprise not only intercultural skills but also interdisciplinary know-how. It is important for workforce to be able to work in an international environment and collaborate with colleagues from all over the world. In addition, it is essential to understand the correlation between engineering and other functions and be able to work at the interface of these functions.
