Globalization has a great influence on the 21st century job market and professions, specifically regarding science and technology. The technical skills life cycle is becoming shorter and the mobility of technical specialists between countries is increasing. Engineering education is rapidly evolving and requires excellent technical expertise, taking both advantages of traditional and innovative approaches in education. The need to incorporate interdisciplinary knowledge into education becomes urgent, and moreover the complex global environment requires intercultural team work skills. This article highlights the importance of multidisciplinary approaches leading to innovation in the global perception of engineering education. It focuses on the role of multidisciplinary approaches in earthquake engineering as a successful experience. Moreover the multidisciplinary earthquake engineering experience is taking the challenge of using global approaches in order to be capable of better solving universal issues. Keywords: multidisciplinary approaches, globalization, earthquake engineering.
