Did you know that the past five years have seen a steady growth in the number of Indian students opting to study engineering in Germany? A number of factors have contributed to this growth and we shall examine them later in the article. Be it costs, quality of education or research facilities; Germany offers the best of all of these to international students and Indian students are no exception!
Germany – Setting Benchmarks in Engineering Education
One of my earliest memories of using a German product is a Siemens refrigerator. This was a product that had come home after an auction at a neighbour’s firm, which was closing down. The refrigerator had already seen about five years of service before it came to us. It continued serving us well for another ten years before it was finally traded for an advanced and more efficient refrigerator.
The reason why this post starts with a Siemens refrigerator is to reiterate the point that German engineering is really a class apart and though the Chinese and the Japanese may lay claims to cost-effective and time-saving production techniques; German engineering will always be a definitive benchmark in quality. Germany has some of Europe’s oldest universities, some that started in the 11th and 12th centuries. In the years between the two world wars there was lot of pain and fear amongst the professors and the public. The rise of Nazi Germany and the devastating years that followed the Second World War completely changed the fabric of the country.
It is to the credit of the Germans that they rebuilt themselves. The unification of East and West Germany was a landmark moment and today the country is a shining example of progress and growth. The excellent universities played a major role in the growth of the German economy.
There are a number of universities spread across the country and international students can apply to quite a few of these institutions. Let us look at some of the most popular German universities that attract Indian students to their engineering programmes.
Popular German Universities among Engineering Degree Aspirants
The key German universities that attract many Indian students onto their engineering programmes are:
- Technical University of Munich – TUM
- Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich
- Freie University of Berlin
- Technical University of Berlin
- Heidelberg University
- Dresden University of Technology
Why studying in Germany is a good proposition?
Here are some key points that make Germany an attractive destination for higher studies:
- Tuition fee is at a bare minimum.
- Option to study either in German or in English
- Globally recognised degrees
- State-of-the-art research facilities in all leading universities
