Study Mechanical Engineering in Germany
For every academic university in Germany there are two universities of applied sciences, sometimes called technical universities. A degree in mechanical engineering from a German university will offer you a broad education, with strong industry links. You'll have the opportunity to put your theoretical knowledge into practice on internships and research projects, allowing you to develop key skills sought after by employers.
As a result, Germany has a world-leading reputation for its mechanical engineering degrees, making it a popular choice for international students interested in this study path.
In fact, Germany is the second most popular place to study Mechanical Engineering in the world after the US. As well as the high quality of the degrees, it's popular because there are no tuition fees in Germany.
There are hundreds of bachelor and master degrees available in mechanical engineering at German universities and most are German-taught though some are taught in English.
If you are undertaking a German-taught degree you will need to prove you have sufficient German language skills and may need to undertake a language course first.
Most mechanical engineering programs do not have restricted admissions (such as aptitude tests), which means they are easier to be accepted onto than some more in-demand degrees, although you’ll need to prove you have a passion for the subject. Below is a list of engineering universities in Germany to consider.
