Students in the Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering programs or students in the Rader School of Business have the opportunity to study in Germany during their junior year, through a unique agreement between MSOE and the Lübeck University of Applied Sciences in Lübeck, Germany. The program often is called an exchange program, because Lübeck students also come to MSOE to study.
The Lübeck school year is portioned into two semesters, with a five-week break between semesters, providing an excellent opportunity for travel throughout Europe. Europe’s sleek, high-speed trains make travel between major cultural attractions affordable and fast.
Studying in Lübeck:
- All courses are taught in English, but instruction in conversational German is given.
- All course work transfers to the MSOE program and participation does not delay a student’s progress towards graduation.
- Upon graduation, participating students who meet all requirements will receive a degree from MSOE and the Lübeck University of Applied Sciences, as well.
- You’ll study at Lübeck from September through June of your junior year.
The classes you’ll take are very similar to those at MSOE, with the added cultural benefit of a class about German language and culture each semester. You’ll be in classes with German students for 30 hours per week. Many of them are future exchange students who plan to study at MSOE the following year as seniors, allowing for great camaraderie and lifelong friendships. You’ll also participate in organized cultural programs and tours of industrial companies throughout the year.

All mechanical engineering classes in Germany have been developed to provide seamless credit toward bachelor’s degree progress at MSOE. In addition, a German designed course in Systematic Engineering Design and two opportunities for cultural immersion courses are offered. Many of the German students attending the mechanical engineering courses are those who plan to attend MSOE the following year. Upon completion of your junior year in Germany and your senior year at MSOE, you will receive both the BSME degree from MSOE and the Diplom-Ingenieur from Lübeck University of Applied Sciences.
