Studying Engineering in Germany


Students who are coming from abroad and are thinking about becoming an engineer will find very good conditions of education in Germany. In Esslingen, we offer the international study programme Automotive Systems. It is taught in English and aims to enable students to develop complex control systems in modern vehicles. For me it was something really new because I could see how real world works, what the engineers have to do every day and then you have an idea of what you are going to do later on. To study engineering in Germany you should enjoy mathematics and sciences and have a passion for solving technical problems. If you want to study engineering then you don’t have to be a genius like most of the people think. You just have to have passion for something. There are a lot of fields that you can study like cars or airplanes or whatever. You just have to like what you do. Besides technical knowledge, an engineer also needs social competences, especially communication skills. In our globalised world prospective engineers should be able to efficiently communicate in international and intercultural teams. To me, living in Germany is more than studying. I have met many nice people, a lot of German and international students. There are so many things to do in your spare time in Germany. You can go on trips and explore nearby cities. One really enjoys the quality of life in Germany. Well, our international students have good opportunities on the job market. About 30 per cent get employed directly in German companies. Then, there is another group that works for German subsidiary enterprises in their home countries. The last group of alumni finds highly qualified jobs in engineering companies in their home country. This was my dream to go out and explore the world, to see more. You just have to believe in yourself and try this and you won’t regret. I would say it’s an experience that changes your life.

    I am a foreign student from Hong Kong, and I am current studying physics and mathematics in local university. I am very interested in the studying engineering in Germany, does my bachelor study make it difficult for me to receiving postgraduate engineering education in Germany? And since I lack bachelor degree of engineering, does solely master in engineering in Germany make me eligible to be employed as professional engineer, both in Germany and worldwide? Thank you.

    That French student is embarrassment to his country" France" couldn't he find a respectable university that offers what he was looking for? Folks this only means that French education is fallen behind European standard.

    Hi, I am a Saint Lucian Male (16 years of age) thinking about going abroad to study engineering in Germany because of the renewable energy plans you have ,the seeming dependence on R and D and the small business and vocational fueled economy, which I really quite respect the country for. In a sense I'm inquiring if my certificates as a Caribbean educated individual will be satisfactory( CSEC,CAPE( next pursuit)and also S.A.T) I'm also involved in many extracurriculars here if that's what's needed to fill the gap. I'm not quite sure because you don't have my country as an option for verification in the certificates category (I also attend St. Mary's College here if that helps with the verification)(my real name is Shemar, Shemsy is a nickname and I use it on sites like this to remain anonymous )

    Whatever Germans do they never reach the mathematical level of the greek engineer. We may not have labs as yours but no one can reach our mathematical and physics level. Where are the germans in the formula competition? They cannot see us and they have BMW AUDI and MERC. We dont have a single car industry. And we are always in the top5.

    Just wanna say here people coming from overseas to do their bachelor studies in Germany should be careful,especially with engineering courses.I have been studying mechanical engineering at the RWTH Aachen for the past 4 years and am in the process of switching to a private university here.The rankings you see online for the top notch universities only applies and makes sense if you are going there for a masters degree,Phd,or for research.From experience I can say doing a bachelors course in Germany at the so called TU9 places is risky.I would advise future engineers to do the bachelors at a a smaller university where you would get more attention and support from the professors and the system.This is super important if you want to get your bachelors done in a decent time,because the unis here are notorious for students spending 7 years for a bachelors degree.And being in a foreign country,the last thing you want is to struggle with your exams.Nobody will warn you that its getting too long and the exams are piling up.At some time you will realise it and it will be too late because the foreigners office will start giving you problems once you exceed the standard study period (7 semesters).It's easy to get lost because you are one in 1,000 students for a single course.

    It's smarter to go to the elite universities for your masters,or if you have a specific research project in mind.Almost all of the money from the state and investments from the industry and the focus goes to the research faculties,educating the bachelor seeking students is an afterthought or secondary objective.I am saying this not to be judgemental,but to save you guys/girls the potential trouble and headache because to get a job in Germany you need a masters anyways to stand out and be competitive.Good luck to those going to Germany soon but always keep your mind and options open once you are there 🙂

    thought pop will benefit in knowledge&skills anyway as long as 1 is able to get there,&engineer oriented program rely more on practical skills,who knows,get to know more future engineers technicians from all over world, sometimes colleagues & classmates r teachers too,or anyone who has good idea&willing to share is respectable
