Engineering Studies in Germany - but which one?

I am extremely interested in technology and would love to study in Germany, THE engineering country – that's for sure!

But the choice is not easy. There are so many possibilities! And such a wide range of subjects!

Should it be "pure technology"? Something with computers? And should it deal with the newest information and communication technologies? Or something with people too?

Discover the world of technology at its best as well as my own interests and strengths... and then choose the best Bachelor's course for me, without waiting and as a student already. That's it!

University entry without risks

Exactly that - and much more - is "Engineering Start Plus": a programme for young people from other countries eager to develop their own competences and determined to find the right course of study for themselves.

  • In two semesters, you will learn the fundamentals of a really vast field of technology, including Information Technology, Biomedical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering and Sciences, Mechatronics, and Mechanical Engineering.
  • Additional training and activities will ensure your success in Germany.
  • An industry internship and an interdisciplinary project round off the experience.
  • Senior students and supervisors accompany you and provide constant guidance and support.
  • After this orientation stage, you will register for the study course of your choice. Credits are transferred up to 100%, resulting in only one single addtional semester with considerable added value.

Study with the award winners

"Engineering Start Plus" is one of six award-winning projects recognized through the nationwide university competition Studienstart MINTernational announced in 2017 by the Donors' Association for the Promotion of Humanities and Sciences in Germany. The objective was to identify and support innovative ideas that focus on ensuring the success of international students in their technological studies.
