The ability to comprehend and translate technical and scientific articles and manuals
from German into English makes our students highly marketable in the professional
world of global engineering. If not entering the job market immediately, but pursuing
an advanced degree after graduation, translating competency will be invaluable, making
a broad range of research possibilities available.
Before graduation this capability may provide an occasional source of income, as many companies require technical translation assistance, or offer the experience of service learning. The Technical Translator Certificate combines the students' scientific and technical expertise with the knowledge gained through comprehensive instructions in German language and culture, providing students with a proficiency that complements, furthers, and reinforces their professional knowledge and abilities.
