Hello! My name is Kate Rohde, and I am a biomedical engineering major at the Swanson School of Engineering. I’m also pursuing minors in Neuroscience and Computer Science. I’m originally from Chicago, Illinois (and I’ve been told I have the accent), and I am super excited to be going to Germany! I’ve never left the United States before, and Germany has always been on the top of my list of places I’ve wanted to go. My family is German, and I’ve always been really interested in the German approach to engineering and business. So when I came to Pitt, I knew Plus3 Germany was the perfect program for me!
In my free time, I like watching hockey, going to museums, and exploring new places. After the program, I’m going backpacking through Germany, the Netherlands, and France with my friend Katie (who’s also on this trip!), so there’s definitely quite a bit of exploring ahead. I’m looking forward to meeting everyone!
