Germany is a world leader in technology and engineering. German companies are especially important to Kentucky’s economy. About 50 German companies are doing business in Kentucky, making Germany the second largest investor in the Commonwealth (behind Japan).
The UK College of Engineering is cooperating with the Division of German Studies in the Department of Modern and Classical Languages, Literature and Cultures, to combine German language and culture with Engineering.
The College of Engineering is currently expanding its German and Engineering Program.

College of Engineering welcomed six Karlsruhe Institute of Technology students
A newly implemented program in 2012 allowed three UK students to visit the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology where they lived in dorms, and were paired with KIT students to take classes or conduct research. At the beginning of the fall semester, UK will welcome six KIT students to join faculty in ME and MSE for research internships. To find out more about this program, please contact Ilka Balk. In future years, the program will be limited to about 10 UK and 10 KIT students.
Exchange Program with the University of Karlsruhe
The College of Engineering has an exchange agreement with the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany. The Institute is a leader in Engineering Research and Teaching. The exchange has a research and an academic component. Students start out working in a lab, researching topics pertaining to their major. Starting in April, students take classes at the University. Students who want to obtain credit and a grade for ME courses taken in Karlsruhe can take a bypass exam after their return to UK. For select courses, marked with an asterisk, some transfer equivalencies have been established, which means that students will receive course credit at UK for the courses taken in Karlsruhe .
Semester-long Study at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany
The College of Engineering can offer students a possibility of studying a semester in Karlsruhe. The program is typically designed for the spring and offers the possibility of studying courses taught in German, English and also of placement in a research internship with a faculty member. If you are interested, please contact the College of Engineering at email@example.com or at: 859-257-4178.
