Engineering in Germany (Masters)

If we view the researches which are recently been established, great support is rendered by the government of Germany to the students who are currently pursuing Masters in Germany.

In fact, Germany is the most supportive country of the European nations, when it comes to the field of education. To ensure this, you can look at the evidence of more than 2, 50,000 foreign students who arrive to study in Germany, every year.

Only 10% of international students count for 2, 50,000 who are enrolled in German universities. This means there is more number of immigrants studying in Germany, then you can ever imagine of.

You will wonder, why? The reason behind this is the part-time and full-time courses which are offered with low and affordable tuition fee. 80% of the foreign students prefer to enroll in German institutes only because of the affordable cost of education in Germany.

Many at times you can even get free education in Germany, irrespective of the course, only the university matters. There is almost the same pattern and quality of education which is followed, be it a Government university or a private one. There is no compromise made to the good quality of education, it offers.

In addition, there are around 409 universities which are officially recognized. Each of them offers 14,500 degree programs, which means, that you have a range of opportunities to study in MS in Germany.

The field of engineering is the fastest growing sector of all because of the technological advancements and the enhancement of techniques involved. Germany is in immense need of the future engineers so as to maintain its standards in terms of modern age transformation.

Indeed, Masters of engineering is one of the most popular post-graduate degree programs in Germany. Master of engineering programs usually last for 2 years. It is open to the graduates with open minds and critical thinking abilities.

Some of the renowned regions of universities, where every graduate of engineering wish to do pursue master in engineering programs are:

Language requirements for MS

Just like the word “German” itself means that most of the programs in the universities are taught in German language. The requirement which every student is asked for is the certification of proficiency in the German language. For this matter, there are two tests available:

  1. The first one is, Deutsche Sprachprüfung für den Hochschulzugang (DSH, which means a German language examination held for your university entrance).
  1. The second test is, the “TestDaF” (which means test of German as a foreign language).

DSH is held only in different universities in Germany and nowhere else apart from that. However the second test i.e. the “TestDaF” can easily be taken in more than 90 countries, globally. Be aware that you cannot chose the test as per your wish but the university will chose it for you, depending upon the kind of university, you apply in.

Glad tidings! For the students who are engaged in the short-term exchange programs, a range of English-taught programs are available for you which are growing day by day. So you do not need to worry much particularly if you are doing Masters in Germany.

As provided by the German Academic exchange service (DAAD), if English is not your first language and you wish to study English–taught programs, then you have to prove your proficiency by passing in IELTS/TOEFEL (English language test).

When is the best time for you to submit your application?

It’s your wish to apply for either the winter semester or the summer one. Also, in many of the German universities, you can apply twice a year i.e. for both of them.

Although the summer semesters are held in the month of April to September but in Fachhochschulen (university of applied sciences in Germany) has a distinct system, altogether where the semesters runs from March to august.

In case of the winter semesters, the time period is from the month of April to the month of September for Fachhochschulen (university of applied sciences in Germany) and for other universities, it is October to March respectively.

The enrollments for winter semesters are to be made before 15th July and enrollments for summer semesters are to be made before 15th January.

Nevertheless, the deadline of application still varies from institutes to institute and universities to university. Even the same institute has the right to set different dates for every MS program. Be double sure of the deadlines for your course.

If you are applying for the first time, it is highly advisable for you to submit your application six months prior to the deadline to avoid any sort of circumstances. Also, if you apply in advance you can take care of all the corrections and will be asked for any document, in case if it is mistaken or left.

How to apply for masters in Germany?

Before you apply for Masters in Germany, you must get the glimpse of what is meant by “Hochschulzugangsberechtigung” (abbreviated as HZB). You might find it laborious to pronounce but it more significant to perceive the intended meaning of it. It stands for “higher education entrance qualification”.

Don’t be troubled! If you have completed your graduation from any other country and still wish to study masters in Germany, yes it is accepted by HZB. But then, again, the requirements will vary as per the institute where you wish to enroll in or the university from where you have completed your graduation.

Still there are some master degrees which might ask to submit your minimum credit score that you have earned so far in the particular field of study.  Each and every condition is set up by the department, offering the program.

The applications for master degree program in Germany can be submitted in two ways either via online portal or directly in the university. If you succeed in submitting all the required documents you are sent to the respective university for further assessment.

Not every university in Germany follow these criteria of admission, some of them may even ask you to visit for your application process.

Every institute has its own norms and conduct for the application and admission process. But the basic documents remains the same like, the official copy of your academic qualifications, a passport sixe photograph, copy of proficiency language program results and a reasonable application fee (not same in every institute).

Student’s Visa

You are really lucky if you are a student from EU, EFA and Switzerland because you will not require a visa to study in Germany. You are only required to go and get yourself registered in the nearest registry office, once you arrive in Germany.

Every student must get registered from the registry after arriving Germany. Students of Andorra, El Salvador, Brazil, Monaco, Taiwan, Honduras and San Marino can even follow this path as long as you don’t wish to stay and work in Germany.

A Student from whichever place belongs, each and every student is mandatorily required to apply for a Visa prior to your arrival in Germany, via any of the German embassy (whichever is near to your place).

If you are already selected for a program in Germany, you can apply for the “student’s visa”. However, if you are a student still waiting to appear for any of the entrance exams or not yet selected, then go and apply for the applicant visa.

Due to verification process, it may take months to issue a Visa, so it is recommended for you to apply for it as soon as possible. Being a visa applicant you are asked to submit:
