We recently went to South Carolina! At Clemson University we held our fourth event of the Employability (made) in Germany series on October 9, 2019, joined by TH Köln University of Applied Sciences and Munich University of Applied Sciences. Prof. Dr. Stefan Herzig, president of TH Köln, Prof. Dr. Klaus Kreulich, Vice-President of Munich UAS delivered the keynote address at Clemson University’s annual German Professional Conference, this year on the subject of “German Language Study and Your Career: Internships and Study Abroad.” Therefore the keynote addressed opportunities of transatlantic academic exchange and careers at German companies in the States and abroad.
Additionally, a wide range of German companies informed about career opportunities. During the Round Table Discussions and Job Fair, attending students had the opportunity to learn about jobs and internships with attending companies as well as study abroad opportunities with UAS7.
The event was part of the Year of German-American Friendship or Deutschlandjahr –Wunderbar Together – a collaborative initiative funded by the German Federal Foreign Office, implemented by the Goethe-Institut, and with support from the Federation of German Industries (BDI). Additional support is granted by a variety of sponsors and co-sponsors such as the German Center for Research and Innovation, the NY German American Chamber of Commerce, and of course by regional supporters wherever we go.
Other events took us to Huntsville, Alabama, Evansville, Indiana, Wichita, Kansas and the University of Pittsburgh, where our member universities as well as business & industry partners highlighted internship and study abroad opportunities for U.S. students in Germany.
