#LiberalArtsWorks: A great addition to any degree

As a freshman in the School of Engineering and Technology at IUPUI, Brian Knip learned about the school’s dual degree program with the School of Liberal Arts. The program enabled him to earn a second degree in German—which came in handy when he interned at Bosch Engineering Group in Germany.

During his software engineering internship, he got experience with vehicle calibrations and the code and logic functions involved in operating vehicles. Now he’s a thermal and fluid science engineer at Cummins, where he performs engine emissions testing and analyzes the results. And he’s still using his liberal arts training, which has helped him communicate with German colleagues.
