Engineering is a very interesting study program and the alumni of the degree are demanded hardly at the job market. The main programs of this subject are Engine Building, Electrical Engineering, Computer Sciences, Industrial Engineering and Building or Architecture. As different as the subjects is the working area in which the alumni can get a job later. Those who are interested in technology or in the other subjects can use this study programs to draw ones future.
Engineering can be studied in Germany at universities or at technical colleges. For the university the Abitur grade is required, for the technical colleges only the suitable degree is required. For international students a similar degree is enough. Interest and maybe a short knowledge in the subject natural sciences, mathematics and computer sciences are good for this study programs.
The engineering programs have been changed with the introduction of the Bachelor and Master system as many other programs in Germany. Now the programs at the different universities are more similar to each other. To find the suitable university or technical college one should think about the future job he or she wants to have and about practical parts of the programs. Practical knowledge is very important in this area. It is anticipated from the alumni that they are able to use their theoretical knowledge and apply it practically. Therefore, it is necessary to do internships and in most study programs it is required to do one.
The part Building and Architecture deals with main problems of the actual century. Space and housing shortage play a big role as well as environmental problems and sustainable building. Alumni in this subject can shape the future of tomorrow and change the cities of the future with their ideas.
In the part of Electrical Engineering one is talking about the questions of the energy supply of the world. What ways are possible to use energy resources efficiently or to transport them and store them? How do the possibilities of tomorrow look like? This subject is groundbreaking and research is a big part of the studies.
Computer Sciences concern themselves with the technical backgrounds of our modern ways of communication and information. Communication has been changed completely because of computer and internet and is still changing fast. The study program gives basic knowledge and important background information. Computer programs can be formed and they may be the next step into the future.
The study program Engine Building is represented strongly in Germany through a lot of universities and technical colleges. Without engines our modern industry wouldn’t exist at all. New innovations are an important part of the studies but also basic knowledge is a big point. Depending on place and university there are numerous different points of interest. While choosing a university one is already doing a step towards his or her future.
Industrial Engineering combines the other subjects. The study program combines technical knowledge with commercial expertise and is building networks between the subjects which can be essential for the later job world.
It doesn’t matter what subject one chooses and where the personal emphasis is, the engineering programs provide a future and the alumni are requested strongly from the companies.
