Program of Study for OSU Participants


As an Oregon State Mechanical Engineering student, you will begin the Atlantis program with three years of study at OSU. This time will give you a chance to complete your pre-professional coursework and your first year of professional school, and to brush up on your language skills before departing for Europe.

The following year will be spent at Saarland University in Germany. During your study abroad experience, you will complete the coursework necessary for your Materials Science degree.

For the final year of the dual degree program, you will return to Oregon State to complete your degree requirements in Mechanical Engineering (along with any German students also participating in the program).
