Answer by Dr. Elisabeth Drake
This is really a question for the Ford Company! Many engineers in US companies travel widely abroad in all sort of capacities. I am a chemical engineer and traveled throughout my career working as a consultant to governments and industries. Ford might send engineers abroad to help countries improve road networks as part of their broader marketing strategies, but that is speculation on my part. If you are interested in international travel, that should be part of your interviewing strategy as you enter the profession. Engineering is full of possibilities - many good wishes for a great future!
