An opportunity to study in a country like Germany will not only expose you to a high quality international education, but also be among the world leaders in field like engineering and applied sciences. Whether a student want to study sciences or cultural history , or philosophy , Germany s no doubt the best option.
The duration of the masters in Germany are 2 yrs, and they can pass out with a MA , masters in arts or Msc , masters in sciences , they programs can be consecutive or non consecutive masters . The consecutive masters in the continuation of the bachelors degree, where as the non consecutive masters are not related to what was studies in the bachelors , but to acquire knowledge and skills in another area of study. The professional masters are also offered in vocational subjects like the nursing education etc, which are more practical and career oriented.

If required by a particular program, you have to submit your thesis to a committee or audience
ENGINEERING IN GERMANY
The masters of engineering programs are offered in various fields like the Engine Building, Electrical Engineering, Computer Sciences, Industrial Engineering and Building or Architecture. A knowledge in natural sciences, mathematics and computer sciences are required for this program other then the relevant under graduation scores. The practical knowledge is given a lot of importance in these programs, other than theoretical and so, it is almost mandatory that they also do an internship at the completion of the program to gain some exposure .
Programs related to building and Architecture studies more about the actual problems faced by the country where there is a space and housing shortages, environmental and sustainability problems. For eg, M eng in international masters and landscape Architecture in Nurtingen and Geislingen university, Msc in Architecture and design in Wismar university , Msc in Urban management program in TU Berlin , to name a few.
In case of the electrical engineering program, it is more related to energy supply, kinds of energy, using energy efficiently, for transportation and storage, for eg, masters in Intelligent embedded Micro-systems in University of Freiburg , Masters in organic and molecular electronics in technical university of Dresden, Masters in electrical system engineering in university of Paderborn, to name a few
Computer science programs with concentration in data mining, networking and programming etc , with universities like Masters in computer engineering by RWTH Aachen , Masters in computational sciences and engineering in TU Munich , Masters in computer and communication technologies in Saarland university to name a few.
Energy related programs and engine building programs are available in plenty, especially in power , green mobility, energy management etc, in universities like masters in energy engineering and energy technologies In Karlsruhe university , masters in renewable energy in cologne university of applied sciences. Masters in energy conversion and management in University of Offenburg to name a few.
Mechanical engineering is one of the oldest and the biggest offered programs in Germany , with important sub divisions being mechanics, mechtronics, thermodynamics etc, the Masters in Mechtronics in Hamburg university of Technology, M Eng in production and automation in Munich university of applied sciences,Msc in Mechanical In Saarland university to name a few.
