Engineering in Germany (Under graduate)

Have you ever dreamt of studying engineering in Germany? Or ever thought of studying engineering in abroad at affordable cost? The answer to all your queries is quite easy; yes, you can turn all of your dreams into reality with Moksh.

The fascinating fact for you is- Germany is a home to more than 200 universities with world-class infrastructure and expertise teaching with a reasonably good quality of education.

What if you get to study in Germany for free?

What if there is no hidden cost?

What if without paying any tuition fee for studying engineering in Germany?

Surprised? No doubt anyone can get! But yes it’s true. Yes you can get free education in Germany.

Generally, there is no tuition fee for most of the universities in Germany (if we exclude the semester charges worth 100-200 euros). Many of the universities do not even charge for semester, which is a fact.

Don’t need to worry about studies but the factor to be taken care of is the living expenses, which is generally around 600-700 euros, for international students.

So you may find Germany as an expensive city, especially in terms of accommodation. But still if you wish to get private apartments you can opt for part time jobs, which most of the students go for, while studying. In order to derive extra pocket income, students are only allowed to work for 20 hours every week.

The future engineers have an explicit inclination towards the interdisciplinary sector. They are supposed and ask to communicate with the geologists, doctors, sociologists and biologists. Engineers are often expected to cooperate with them as well, as they all interdependent as far as actions are concerned.

So if you see yourself as an engineer, you may develop yourself as an extrovert as you are expected to understand people and speak other languages which are of different cultural backgrounds.

With respect to the ongoing industrialization, business globalization and enhancement of new technological advancements there is an enormous need of new materials to serve for the immensely increasing population and beat the continuous challenge in the world of engineering.

Being an engineer, you cannot overlook these challenges, instead of which you should always strive to commit for maintaining the technical standards of living in the developed countries. And must create new ways for the developing countries and must try to look forward for all the possible consequences that may or may not arise as far as your acts are concerned.

There is massive requirement for engineers, especially, those who are ready to create new and developed areas of work, beyond any restricting limits of the outdated/existing technology.

Being the field of engineering is a process of lifelong learning where you learn with every step of construction, made by you.

Coming back to the German universities, you can get admission every single field of engineering, you have ever imagined!

Here are some of the most engaged and superior-most sectors of engineering in Germany:

  • Mechanical/Automotive Engineering
  • Electrical Engineering
  • Computer Engineering
  • Electronics Engineering
  • Civil Engineering
  • Transportation Engineering

Admission requirements:

Students after completing 12th standard are supposed to accomplish a one year preparatory course at “Studienkolleg”. As far as requirements of the preparatory course are concerned, you are supposed to get Zertifikat Deutsch (a Duetsch certificate) in most of the cases.

Once you are done with the preparatory course, you are asked to appear for an examination “Aufnamheprufung”. The final results of the preparatory course, comes after the assessment of this examination test.

“Studienkolleg” ask students for the A-level certification. If you already have accomplished it, it means that you must have passed the literature as well as English subject examination as per the assessing body. One thing you must note that the general paper is not considered to be the component of language.

In case if you wish to study in German medium then you are supposed to pass B1 level exam in Nepal followed by German language training which lasts for 4-6 months. After this you are given a certificate of C1 level/TestDaF/DSH-2.

In order to study for the Bachelor degree in engineering in Germany, you are required to pass the English, literature as well as other mandatory subjects. Once these requirements are fulfilled, the student can study engineering in Germany, however the subjects that are taught in English are really few.

The basic requirements for your admission into a foundation course are:

  • Excellent Marks in School Leaving Certificate (minimum 75%)
  • Excellent Marks in 10+2 or equivalent (minimum 65%)
  • German Language Proficiency documented and certified by Goethe Zertifikat B1.

Tuition Fee

The cost of studying engineering in Germany is comparatively low if we take that of other European nations. But you may find it expensive in terms of housing and accommodation.

Yes you heard it right! The tuition cost of studying engineering in Germany is relatively cheaper and sometimes there is no tuition fee at all. Most of the universities do not charge for semester fee at all but still there are some left which may ask you to pay for the semester union fee.

At present the fee is up to 500 euros for every semester, if we take a look at some of the German universities. The tuition fee charged by the private universities, are high enough, if we compare it with that of govt. ones.

But you don’t bother! The quality of education is almost the same in both kinds.

Process of admission

  1. You are asked to learn the German language up to the B1 level and pass it.
  2. Once you have passed it, submit the certificate of B1 level examination along with all of your academic documents to the university.
  3. In case if you have a blocked account, you can apply for it, once your admission letter arrives.
  4. Once the ministry of Nepal allots you the no objection certificate, you can transfer the living cost of your first year to blocked account.
  5. The next step is to apply for the visa application as it takes around 6-8 weeks.
  6. Once you are done with the application, then apply for visa and again wait for 6-8 weeks.
  7. After you receive your visa, you can take off for Germany!

  • Once you complete they German language course, you can begin with your 1 year preparatory/foundation course in Germany.
  • After the accomplishment of the 1 year foundation course you can begin with your 4 years bachelor degree program in Engineering in Germany.

After studies:
