Hello,
-anuragm ,
I am planning to apply for the Chemical and Energy Engineering Master Program in the OvG university of Magdeburg in the next Summer semester (April 2012). Anyone going to there?
Advices are highly appreciated. How can I improve my chances of getting an admit?
I had 83 on TOEFL ibt, my general average in the Bachelor degree is 72%.
Do letters of recommendation and letter of motivation make any differences?
Thank you.

I intend to attend OvGU Magdeburg starting this month, but my visa has not been approved yet. There is still a small hope that I will make it in time. In case I don't, I will be joining in April.

Overall, only two things are important - acads and letter of motivation. Your acads seem good enough. Hence, you should concentrate on your SoP now.

The following site lists all requirements for application.
http://www.ovgu.de/isut/master/index_m.html

According to the website the cutoff for TOEFL iBT is 80, so your score should not be a problem. It is also mentioned that LoRs are optional (see text below). However, if you have strong LoRs, you should include them by all means to make your application stronger.

Quote:Letter of Motivation / Special Questions Regarding this Graduate Degree Programme
Questions we would like you to answer in your letter:

If you have completed a professional training, please name the field in which you performed such training.
If you have completed internships during your previous studies, please indicate the special area(s) of such internship(s).
Can you think of any other special expertise that qualifies you for our Graduate Programme in Chemical and Energy Engineering? You can add 2 or 3 letters of recommendation here.

Thanks a lot for your reply anuragm, I appreciate your valuable info.
My best wishes to you and I hope that you get the visa in time.
We will keep in touch.

I think I need help with my SoP, any guidelines or essential ideas should be available or any other statement to avoid?

For all queries related to SoP, you can check out the Apping Guide in my signature. Also, if you have any specific questions, you can post them here.

anuragm , Thank you for your help.
Just a quick question, how much time it needed to get your reply from OvGU Magdeburg since the day you sent your application?

norbert90 The time difference between their acknowledgement mail and the confirmation of admission mail was about 2 weeks.

anuragm I just got the acknowledgment email but It's saying that "Applicants who sent complete packages before the application deadline will be given the information about admission or rejection for the summer semester until February 15". Does this mean I have to wait until February 15 ?
I am sorry for bothering you with my questions.
Thank you for your helpful info.

You won´t have to wait that long. In all probability, you will receive the result within 3-4 weeks of getting this email.

anuragm Thanks for the reply, I can't wait to get my admission letter. By the way, how is Magdeburg and the university? Is there a lot of students enrolled in this Master program?

norbert90 Although its the biggest city in the state of Saschen-Anhalt, Magdeburg is a quiet place. If you know German then life becomes a lot easier since the only people who know English can be found around the university. I don't know enough yet to compare OvGU Magdeburg to other universities, but I would say that its quite good. I find the professors here (at least for the compulsory courses) to be pretty awesome!

In the CEE program, there are a lot of people from various nationalities - Indians, Pakistanis, Chinese, Indonesian, Turkish, Iranis, etc form the majority. There are no Germans in CEE as they prefer the Process Engineering program which is in German. The number of people enrolled for this course has shot up this year - lectures have been relocated to accommodate the students. Accommodation will be a problem so make sure to apply to Studentenwerk as soon as you get your letter of acceptance.

I am just coming back from a job fair where representatives from about 30-40 companies had come. These included BASF, TOTAL, Outotec, CAC Chemical, Ball Corporation, Volkswagen, KPMG, etc. The first 5, as you would know, are related to Chemical Engineering. There were other companies for financial services, software, CAD, electronics, wind energy etc - but I don't think you would be interested in them.

norbert90 Yes, by "This year" I meant "This Winter Semester".

Yeah, people who joined in summer 2011 have their (compulsory) courses common with us.

anuragm Just for curiosity Razz what was the number of students that have enrolled for this winter semester?
Well, do you think that applying for the summer semester will improve the admission's chances? correct me if I'm wrong, the number of students starting in the summer semester is comparatively low to the one that have started in the winter semester.

hi Seniors and Friends

I want to apply for Magdeburg University for MS in Electrical and Information Technology. Can anyone tell me what is the scope of MS there and the job as well as PH.D prospects. I would thank those who are already studying there if you could kindly give me a few ideas about the university.

I want to apply for winter 2012. Please advise me.


Thanks
Kiran
