PG in Germany via GATE for Indian Students

Germany is an ideal destination for international students interested in Post-Graduation in Engineering.

Universities in Germany not only focus on providing top quality of higher education, they also provide suitable living standards for international students.

Apart from providing students the chance to work on cutting-edge research, PG programs in Germany also have strong alliances with technology-based and manufacturing-based firms, paving the way for practical, application-based learning.

As far as living standards are concerned, Germany universities have relatively lower tuition fees and lower cost of living than universities of other nations. Apart from that, international students can also avail of multiple Scholarships and Financial Aid from universities, firms, research organizations and government bodies.

Further, Germany's strong economy, with a constant need for experts in Technology and Industry, also provides great employment opportunities for PG students.

All of the above factors have led to the emergence of Germany as a preferred destination for PG, especially for Mechanical Engineering students.

German universities have also started recognizing the increasing admissions of Indian students. A case in point has been the acceptance of GATE score by RWTH Aachen University, one of Germany's topmost universities for Mechanical Engineering and ranked 12th in overall World Ranking.

Since last year, RWTH has made GATE Qualification COMPULSORY for Indian Students. The university website link for Auto Engg clearly mentions: "For Indian students the GATE-test is mandatory!". RWTH is the leader of a group of universities called TU9 - a coalition of top 9 universities in Germany. TU Munich is a member university of TU9 and has also started accepting GATE Scores for Indians thought it is not mandatory.

Going forward, we can expect more German PG universities accepting GATE score for Indian admissions.

On a concluding note, Post-Graduation in German Universities is slowly and steadily becoming a major opportunity for Indian students interested in Post-Graduation.
