WPI’s German curriculum provides students with fast-paced language learning and culture exploration, but lacks STEM topics that engineering students would like to use in a global workplace. We have created a framework for slowly introducing STEM topics into the German curriculum. From conducting two separate surveys among students and interviews with faculty, we found there is mixed interest from the current WPI community in STEM inclusion with German courses. With these results we structured the framework to maintain the current curriculum and slowly add STEM topics in small amounts. This additive process can continue until new courses and international connections with companies and universities can be established.
