Technical German Language for Engineers Certificate

Currently, there are over 3,000 German companies in the United States, and according to the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) Public Relations Division, German industries hire over 40,000 employees in Illinois alone. Technical words like “press, tolerances and break edges” can often get lost in translation, so it is beneficial to know the difference between these words and their meaning in engineering. The German Language for Engineers Certificate helps you do just that – enabling you to enhance your German vocabulary specific to the field of engineering. You are encouraged to bring work examples such as articles, manuals and scenarios to class for practical application to your specific interpreting needs. This 30-hour online program provides total immersion with an instructor fluent in German and engineering, helping you improve your language skills and advance your professional development.

Learning Outcomes

  • Interpret and analyze technical German vocabulary specific for engineers and explore use in everyday work-life examples
  • Compare how spoken and technical words in engineering have different meanings
  • Explore clues for reading comprehension and how technically composed substantives work
