Abstract

This paper describes method and results of assessment of global competency in engineering students who participated in a multicultural and multidisciplinary project based learning course. Subjects are total of 73 students with 14 nationalities from different fields of major. Assessment of collaboration and leadership competency under the global environment were evaluated by plural procedures. It became clear that the course had a certain efficiency to strengthen the global competency in engineering students. The results of correlation analysis suggested that possible factors which can bring out students' abilities under the global environment should be clarified as developing technical communication skill and providing global collaborative working.
