Auburn offering degrees in engineering, German

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — Auburn University has a new dual-degree program for students interested in both engineering and the German language.

A statement from the school says the new program has students taking four years of classes in Auburn and one year in Germany, where they’ll study at a partner school and work in an internship.

The degree could help students wanting to work in fields including automotive manufacturing since the German automaker Mercedes-Benz has a plant that employs thousands in Tuscaloosa County.

In all, almost 90 German companies have operations in Alabama.

The university says the new program is a joint effort between the colleges of engineering and liberal arts. Most Auburn students minoring in German are engineering majors.
