The German Program at Purdue offers two courses focusing on Science and Engineering, beginning at the second-year level. Topics include the history of German science, German scientists and inventions, and research and innovations in a variety of fields in science and engineering. These courses will also help students get familiar with German job applications (e.g. how to write resumes in German) and gain intercultural competence for internships and study-abroad programs. Ideal for science and engineering majors and all students interested in science, engineering, and technology.
