Leibniz University Hannover-Germany
LeTourneau University is excited to partner with a new university in Germany that offers a variety of courses and internships for Engineering, Liberal Arts, Business and more! Leibniz University in Hannover is one of Europe's oldest and yet still leading technical universities for Science and Technology. What's great about Leibniz besides its connections to internships at Audi, Volkswagen, and BMW, is also the ability to receive a scholarship to help research at LUH through the DAAD Scholarship out of Germany. It's a world of opportunity for our students in Engineering as well as other disciplines!
