Building Lasting Bridges: German and Engineering

The development of five courses for a dual degree program in German and engineering.

The Project, “Building Lasting Bridges: German and Engineering at Auburn University,” seeks funding to create five innovative courses that strengthen the collaboration between humanities and STEM fields at Auburn University. Comprised of faculty from both German and Engineering, the collaborative team will build on the recently approved dual degree program in German and Engineering to develop four courses that support dual degree students in attaining high levels of linguistic, intercultural, and technical expertise. For the fifth course, the team will transform an already existing pre-engineering course to make intercultural competence central to student learning outcomes. By shifting its project development focus to an international context, the pilot version of this course will train hundreds of pre-engineering students in intercultural competence. As a result of this collaboration, students will learn to build bridges, both literally and figuratively.
