LCP + Your Major in Engineering

“Math is the same in every country.”- Cady Heron, Mean Girls

Unfortunately, science and the ability to explain complex structures isn’t. Your career will thrive if you have a better understanding of international environments, cultural expectations, historical precedent, and – of course – language.

Why do LCP with your major in Engineering?

You want a major that lays a strong direction for your future career, but you also want to stand out with your international perspectives.

What’s LCP all about?

  • Coursework tailored to professional issues
  • Internship or study abroad
  • Scholarships for your international experiences

Whether you just want to keep improving your language skills or study culture or you’re convinced you want to work internationally, LCP is right for you. Our classes will use the other part of your brain that you don’t get to exercise in your primary major.

Majors + Minors

What language and culture do you want to pair with your primary major? You can do an LCP major or minor with these!

Minors only

If you want to make inroads in the Russian-speaking or Chinese-speaking worlds, check out these LCP options.

Interning Abroad

First and foremost, LCP internships are about the cultural and language experiences. However, our LCP students have worked at amazing organizations such as Bosch, Daimler, and John Deere International. Where will you go? You can find out more about internships for credit here.

NOTE: In some cases, an approved credit-bearing study abroad experience can take the place of the internship. Contact us, to get the conversation started!

Meet your LCP Ambassador

Willem Paul, Software Engineer & German LCP

I am a fourth-year student with majors in Software Engineering and LCP German. After four years of German courses in high school, I planned to continue learning German at ISU, but had no idea of how I could merge my two interests. A friend and then-WLC Ambassador introduced me to the LCP program during my freshman year and I decided to declare a second major in German right away. It was a perfect match: I could continue studying German—something I love—without disrupting my S E program—something I also love.

I am super passionate about world languages and cultures and love to share that passion with others. Contact me to learn more about combing the engineering degree you love with your own passion for language and culture. I want to help you begin your own LCP adventure, just as my friend did for me.
