24 German students earning their bachelor’s degrees in engineering and technical sciences are currently at Louisiana State University, where they are participating in the intensive 3-week Fulbright program, “Leaders in Entrepreneurship” from March 4 to 24. This program’s focus on entrepreneurship fills a gap in the German higher education system, which tends to nurture the entrepreneurial spirit more exclusively in those studying business. The program at LSU provides exposure to American entrepreneurial concepts for students pursuing studies in engineering and more technical fields, where indeed much innovation is being created.
The seminar includes excursions to local industrial facilities and meetings with local entrepreneurs, as well as classes and lab visits at LSU’s College of Engineering, where there is ample opportunity for exchange with U.S. graduate students of engineering.
