My name is Katie Topp and I have been studying Anthropology and German at the University of Rhode Island. I have just got home from a year abroad in Germany as a guest student of the International Engineering Program (IEP). I would love to visit your junior level and possibly the senior level classes to speak briefly to your students about the great opportunities this program provides.

The following link is to the IEP website: In brief, the IEP is a 5 year, dual degree program during which the student studies a language of choice (Chinese, Spanish, French, German, Italian) in conjunction with an engineering discipline.

In the fourth year of study, the student spends the year abroad- the first six months are spent studying at a partner university, the following six months are spent doing an internship with a reputable company in your language of choice.

For the seniors, I would like to meet before December first, since that is the application due date for engineers at URI. For the juniors, Spring semester would be easier for everyone.

We would love to show the amazing students of North Kingstown the opportunities that the IEP program can give to them.

Please share this email with whom you believe may be interested in my visit, as I would like to tell as many students as possible about the IEP!

Thank you and best regards,

Katie Topp
North Kingstown Resident and Student of URI
