At Kempten University, engineering students have the unique opportunity to study and intern in Germany for one or two semesters. While courses are taught in German, a select number of courses in Mechanical and Industrial Engineering have been designed to include lecture notes and exams in English. At the start of the semester, a free intensive German language course and orientation program will be provided. Paid internships at nearby machine building companies will also be available. While you may attend without prior study of German, it is recommend that you have at least some background in the language.
