LCP + Your Major in Engineering

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!

Octavia Grimes

German LCP & Industrial Engineering

Hi! My name is Octavia Grimes and I am a Junior studying Industrial Engineering and German LCP. I have loved German since I began taking it my Junior year of high school and knew I wanted to major after taking a gap year to study abroad in Hamburg, Germany. I met with my advisor freshman year and learned about the LCP program and how well it worked with my four-year plan and the college of Engineering! LCP allowed more flexibility to my schedule, and I’m going to study abroad next summer! 

Studying abroad helped me improve my speaking, reading, comprehension, and writing skills. It was an incredibly meaningful experience, and I’m excited to do it again this summer! If you want to learn more about the programs open to you or the experiences I have had, please email me at or drop by my office hours!
