Mechanical Engineering is one of the popular branches of engineering. This discipline includes the application of laws of physics for designing, analyzing and manufacturing of mechanical systems. Mechanical engineers design and assemble engines and power plants, structures and vehicles of all sizes. An MS in Mechanical Engineering is ideal for students who want to explore the research prospects and study opportunities in this field and the other obvious reasons include advancement in career.  MS in Mechanical Engineering provides students with the in-depth knowledge in related are like design, manufacturing and robotics to name a few.

Basic eligibility required:

To be eligible for MS programs in Mechanical Engineering, the candidate must hold a bachelor’s degree in engineering, mechanical engineering or related disciplines. Students who do not hold a bachelor’s degree in mechanical may have to take up additional engineering courses for some graduate programs.

Top destination to study MS in Mechanical Engineering:

MS in Mechanical Engineering is a thriving course in USA, U.K, Canada and even so in Germany.  With German automobile industry booming, many students these days are interested in studying MS in Mechanical Engineering at German universities. While earlier students worried about the medium of instruction and requirement of German language, today, students can opt for specific specialized courses in Mechanical engineering, which are imparted in English (called international programs). Students of international courses are waived off German language proficiency requirement.

The top five universities offering MS in Mechanical Engineering in Germany include:

  • Ravensburg Weingarten University of Applied Sciences.
  • University of Applied Sciences Ingolstadt.
  • University of Siegen.
  • Esslingen University of Applied Sciences.
  • University of Wuppertal.

Differences in U.S and Germany MS in Mechanical Engineering

Many aspirants of the degree today are contemplating between the U.S and Germany. While completing the MS degree in USA will cost you around Rs 20-50 lakh, you can secure the MS Mechanical degree in around Rs 5-15 lakh. The U.S follows more generalized approach, while the German courses in MS Mechanical are highly specialized. In addition, Germany follows a more application oriented approach as against the theoretical approach, while the U.S system is closer to our education system and easy to adapt.
