Germany is an outstanding study destination if your desired choice of a subject is engineering. Providing for the fact that Germany offers excellent educational possibilities for national and international students alike, with low to no tuition fees and great campus lifestyle, the country is becoming irresistible for prosper students and future experts.
Engineering is a broad subject comprised of numerous specified subfields, each one very different and challenging, essential for the world market. The Universities in Germany pack a highly progressive infrastructure luring international students to an expat friendly environment.
According to Zeit Online proposed criteria into evaluating and coming up with a final list of the best universities, for students who wish to pursuit a carrier as an engineer, allegedly except for an international environment and an optimal infrastructure students look for accredited laboratories, teaching evaluations and a future job position mediated by the University.
Employability rating for bachelors – The employability rating („Praxis-Check“) is assessing the promotion of generic skills and competencies which are related to labor market and employability of Bachelor programs. The overall rating is composed of three dimensions: the promotion of methodological skills, of social skills and the inclusion of work practice. The rating is based on minimum criteria which were transformed into a point scale with a maximum score of 45 points; each of the three dimensions is weighted equally with a maximum score of 15 points.
IT Infrastructure – Students assessed the hard and software equipment, maintenance and care and the access times as well as the availability of computer workstations that they can use in their studies.
International Orientation – International orientation of the course(s), composition of different facts: obligatory stays abroad/joint degree program; percentage of international students; internationality of the scientific staff; percentage of classes given in foreign language. A certain number of points can be gathered from the four areas, with a maximum of 14 points (10 for German language and literature). The top-group is reached with 6 points (4 for German language and literature), the middle group with at least 2 points. With less than 2 points a course assigned to the bottom group.
Credits for Laboratory practices – Number of credits awarded for laboratory practical. Particularly in natural science subjects, a large number of courses are held in laboratories. The indicator shows the share of studies prospectively earmarked for practical laboratory courses.
Teaching Evaluation – Students rated the performance of teaching evaluations, the participation of students in this process, and the implementation of the results. The evaluation of courses and lectures is a popular instrument for checking and improving the quality of courses and teaching.
Regarding the engineering sub-fields such as Electrical engineering, Industrial engineering, Mechanical engineering and Material engineering based on the following criteria brought by Zeit Online through student, alumni, professor judgments and facts, we came up with lists:
