Hey Guys...I have gone through most of the posts here...Very informative and cleared most of my doubts abt studyin in Germany...Thanks a ton again...But I still have some queries..if u can address them, it will be of great help to me.
Well, I want to pursue masters in VLSI/ IC design..For this course, i was targeting to apply most of the asian univ such as HKUST, NTU, NUS, etc. The reason being i was, and still not sure abt the quality of education as well as job prospects after finishing masters in the mentioned field from German Univ.
I had also kept an option of pursuing Masters in embedded systems or Mechatronics from German Univ if i do not get admit to Asian Univ. The reason being, I am already working with German MNC in the field of Automotive Embedded Systems.

But, after going through the posts, i think i should consider applying to German Univ also for MS in VLSI/IC design.

Can anyone help me out with the better option? My preference is VLSI. Which will be better- Asia or Germany?

Thanx in advance.

neil16 Welcome to Edulix!!!!!!

With whatever knowledge I have, a MS from anywhere is good. The whole thing of job prospects and other opportunities depends mainly on you. Of course choosing between Asia and Germany is a bit tricky when you consider electronics. Germans as not as good as Asians in the field of electronics, but their teaching standards should be higher than the Asian institutions.

You can look for TU Munich university which offers a few courses in Singapore. That way you can have both German and Asian teaching and exposure. But the fees are very high and they have few higher demands.

I can help you only up to this extent. You will soon get more help here. Look for threads that compare Asian and European standards and other factors. You can come to an conclusion.

Hope that helped you some way

Any queries related to Technical University Hamburg-Haburg(TUHH). I would be glad to answer.

I think you have a more than a good chance of getting into most of the universities listed above. Just go to DAAD. Do some research on the cost, the requirements and other thing on that site.

You need some good SOP, and other experience will count too. The faster you apply the better are the chances of getting an admit. Check for the other universities too.Smile

I have not much idea but I have a vague idea that you can in the neighbouring countries. Sweden, Netherlands too. Too many options are confusing too. Sad

Hello everyone...
I am new to Edulix
I would love to share some things i have noticed when applying for Masters in Germany.

German uni's weigh heavily on your Acads...
But what they dont know is every University in India is different.
For instance University of Mumbai is tougher to score than say VTU Belgaum.
But they never take this thing into consideration.
All they look at is your acads.

And people with CGPA are at an advantage ...

For instance my grade is 7.32(out of 10).
When German uni considers my grades they feel my grade amounts to 73.2% when actually its less than that !!!!
And they dont care if your from which university (Except IIT's - They know a thing or two about IIT's)

In that sense

70% from Mumbai University is treated same as 7.00 from some autonomous College.

That makes people from Mumbai University at a disadvantage..

I was actually surprised when UNI-Assist(Central Foriegn Degree Conversion Institute in Germany) converted my grades to 2.34 ( According to German Grade conversion)

That made me above average when my acads wer just "average"...

Hope you get the point!!!!!

You can apply for the desired university with a TOEFL score of 2years old or newer.(Some universities specify in their site). But as far as VISA processing is concerned, for a German visa the TOEFL score should be less than a year old.

The TOEFL score must be valid at the time of application. By the time you apply your TOEFL validity would have expired.And also most of the courses in Germany start Mid-Sept onwards. So it is better if you take your TOEFL again after September or October, thereby helping you in both application and Visa processing with a fuss.

P.S. Check the universities' website and if needed, call to the university and check with them.

PragathiSundar
So, If I gave my TOEFL in July 9th this year....Next year when I get an admit and go for my Visa to the German Couns. in July/August, my TOEFL score should be less than 1 year old??? Please can anyone confirm this so that I can give my Toefl again

I am new to edulix.Well i always harboured this passion to study in germany.I,infact appeared for both gre and toefl in 2008 when i was in final yr but somehow didnt applied anywhere.Now i want to apply this time.I hav a old gre score,over 3 yr old but m going to give toefl in jan 2012.I am intertested in Fall 2012 and hav only selected one univ i.e FH Aachen,because my area of interest is in sustainable energy use and conservation,and havnt found many univ in germany specifically dealing with this.
I am worried becoz my graduation record is not very attractive,i have scored just 65 percent during my graduation from guru gobind singh indraprastha university,new delhi,no paper presentation nothing.But yes i have 1.5 yrs of ex as HVAC engineer designing energy efficient HVAC system for Commercial buildings.

one more thing, i hav a gap yr just after my school got over.

Now my question is,will my low graduation record,old GRE score and gap yr between studies affect my chances of admission?

What exactly german univ look for,do they look for great graduation record,which i dont have,or they also consider relevent work expeirience too?

shashank gangil First of all... German universities do not require Gre... Since u r not having an exceptional score, u r better off not sending them. Try and score 95+ in toefl and that ll be taken care of... Although germans (as a matter of fact all europeans) seem to give a lot of importance to undergraduation score, ur score is not too to get rejected right off... And for ur kind information, german value the work experience a lot, giving u a good advantage. Write a strong SOP with letters of recommendation from ur workplace and university, u can end up securing a good admit...

Best of luck...

Hi..

My name is Deepak. I'm gonna apply for Winter 2012.. I did my B.E. ECE from College of Engineering, Guindy, Anna University, Chennai. I have 8.38/10 as my CGPA. Core is Electronics..

I havent written GRE as many univs dont ask for it.. Thinking of taking IELTS as some univs do ask for it, but others take the 'medium of instruction' certificate itself received from college as proof of English..

I have few univs shortlisted along with their courses.. Can you let me know, whether they are good?

Here are the universities where i got courses for me.. It just the starting point of Short listing universities to apply..

1. Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences: ME Information Technology (IT)

2. Technische Universität München (University): Master of Science in Communications Engineering

3. Esslingen University of Applied Sciences: Automotive Systems (Master of Engineering)

4. Berlin University of Technology: Global Production Engineering in Solar Technology (GPE)

5. TU Darmstadt (University of Technology): Electrical Power Engineering (EPE)

6. TU Darmstadt (University of Technology): International Master's Programme in Information and Communication Engineering

What do you think of the universities?? And what are my chances?
