2020 Global Program - Germany or Spain

Want to really stand out from your peers when it comes time to look for a job? Make a huge difference upgrading your resume consulting in Bavaria, Germany or Pamplona, Spain this summer. This program offers a unique opportunity working on a team based project for a European company. Students will get hands-on experience working on a specific project for international companies in Germany or Spain and will work with business students from Auburn’s Harbert College of Business for integrated business/engineering solutions.

Teams will typically include three to five Auburn students though in some cases multiple teams might work for the same client depending on the project and complexity of the problem. This program is appropriate for all engineering majors as teams will be created to include complimentary skill sets needed to complete client projects.

The program will include significant travel and cultural opportunities. No foreign language skills required. English speaking staff will be available as needed for translation and to interface with the clients. Travel will include some of the most famous attractions in the areas.
