Electrical Engineering students studying abroad in their third year are expected to have completed all 100 and 200 level technical courses and the following 300-level courses prior to studying in Germany: ENEE303, ENEE322, and ENEE380.
If studying in Germany during the final spring semester, Mechanical and Electrical Engineering students should plan to complete 12 to 15 credits of in-major and out-of-major technical electives abroad.
Universities particularly favor this component of IB, as it replicates students’ real-life experience on the collegiate level.
Coursework in for International Baccalaureate involves a two-year program that contains six academic areas.
The International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma is a rigorous pre-university course of studies, leading to examinations, which meet the needs of motivated secondary school students between the ages of 16 and 19 years.
Designed as a comprehensive two-year curriculum enabling graduates to fulfill requirements of various national and international education systems, the diploma model is based on the pattern of no single country but incorporates the best elements of many.
James Clark School of Engineering and the Department of Germanic Studies in the School of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures. The Engineering and German program is for highly motivated students with strong high school or college grades who are willing to embark on an exciting and challenging endeavor.
Its purpose is to promote technology, language, and cultural development for students interested in these areas. REQUIREMENTSThe requirements include engineering and science courses, the general education courses required for all students at the University of Maryland, and German courses in language, literature, and culture.
Other engineering majors can consider participating in the dual/double degree program and should contact advisors in both majors to discuss their 4/5 year plans.
Students outside of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering may consider attending Technische Universitat Munchen, RWTH Aachen University, or Hochschule Mannheim.
