One of the most widely spoken languages in the world, fluency in Spanish is a necessity for many global engineering careers. The demand for culturally sophisticated bilingual professionals capable of functioning in our diverse global marketplace is expected to increase in the coming years, especially as the economies of Europe and Latin America expand. Even here in the United States, Spanish is spoken widely at engineering and business firms.
