Welcome to CrazyEngineers. Have you short-listed any Universities on your own? I think the choice would totally depend on your scores (I guess they need GRE score?), course you want to opt for, your past experience, expectations etc.
@Abhiraj10 • 03 Mar, 2015 yeah i found 3 collage till now having English as a medium of teaching.
1) FH AACHEN - UNIVERSITY OF APPLIED SCIENCES
2) RWTH AACHEN UNIVERSITY
3) HOCHSCHULE ESSLINGEN UNIVERSITY OF APPLIED SCIENCE

i cant find any more collage. if u can help me with more.
do i look in any other country also?
do i look different course?
@Ankita Katdare • 03 Mar, 2015 The three universities you have listed are the top ones in Germany for MS in Automobile Engineering. Since you are from mechanical engineering, the best courses for you in MS are in the field of either automobiles or aeronautics (in the broad sense). You can choose a specialization of course. Specializations can include topics such as Materials engineering, Engineering mechanics, Mechatronics etc.
@Abhiraj10 • 03 Mar, 2015 thank you mam.
is there any more collage or do i have to stick with these 3 only?
@Ankita Katdare • 03 Mar, 2015 If you prefer English, I think those three are good enough.
You can check Ingolstadt too. I guess they offer English course for automobile engineering
@Ankita Katdare • 03 Mar, 2015 Here is a list I found -

1. Automotive and Combustion Engine Technology (Master of Science) - Munich University of Technology (Garching)

2. Automotive and Engine Technology (Master of Science) - University of Stuttgart (Stuttgart)

3. Automotive Components Engineering and Mechatronics (Master) - University of Bayreuth (Bayreuth)

4. Automotive Engineering (Master) - West Saxon University of Applied Sciences of Zwickau (Zwickau)

5. Automotive Engineering (Master) - Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (Hamburg)

6. Automotive engineering (Master) - Berlin School of Applied Sciences (HTW) (Berlin)

7. Automotive Engineering (Master of Science) - University of Siegen (Siegen)

8. Automotive Systems (Master) - Berlin University of Technology (Berlin)
@Shashank Moghe • 03 Mar, 2015 @Ankita Katdare while I appreciate your efforts in finding him a list of universities, I would strongly advise against it. He plans to do an extremely effort-intensive course. If he is not able to invest his time in finding universities, then it must become our responsibility to make him find his own way. Finding universities is a lengthy procedure, and must I say, with all the bad universities that you find, you learn a lot of good from that experience. The process will only make him wiser.

@Abhiraj10 , no disrespect to your ambition, but you need to answer yourself (and us) these questions.
1) What is your interest?
2) Which year are you in currently?
3) Why do you want to do a MS?
@Abhiraj10 • 03 Mar, 2015 @Ankita Katdare I appreciate you for finding me list of universities.
Thanks a lot
@Abhiraj10 • 03 Mar, 2015 @shashank thanks pal but I seriously am making effort to know each and everything about as many collage as I can and yeah I experienced a lot.
This post was not to know about collage,course and everything from baseline but it was to know wheather m I missing something or to know about my choice(wheather it is correct?) and also if any student who might actually had old experience could help.
@Shashank Moghe • 03 Mar, 2015 • 1 like Have you used Edulix? It is a forum for students who want to pursue Masters abroad. It allows you to:

1) Get in touch with seniors from a lot of universities from a lot of countries.
2) Allows you to participate in discussion forums for various universities, where students like you and seniors discuss various aspects.
3) Allows you to look at profiles (academic and extra-curricular) of students and the admits they got.
4) Allows you to take the help of seniors in deciding upon your choice of university once you have finalized on a starting set yourselves.

* I get NOTHING out of promoting Edulix. I shared this only because it is a forum (particularly of Indian students) who are in the same boat. I shared this information because I have been helped immensely while I was applying for my MS and am sure would help @Abhiraj10 too. Besides, it is free. Do NOT pay any consultant in India for university selection. They dupe you and make you apply to really 3rd grade universities, just so they can boast of a higher percentage of students sent abroad.

@Ankita Katdare @Kaustubh Katdare I hope this is not a problem.

@Abhiraj10 you are welcome to ask any further queries (after you answer the three questions) and we will be more than happy to help you here. Make the most of internet, you can find an excellent career choice by using it right. You already saw how the moderators on this forum are willing to go above and beyond their call of duty to help you. Welcome to CE.
@Abhiraj10 • 03 Mar, 2015 @Shashank Moghe
My interest is to keep on learning. I want to learn new things more practically.
I graduated last year and preparing for different examinations.
Actually I was unaware of the fact till couple of days back that MS in Germany isn't much expensive.
I never want to do m.tech because it focus on theory rather than practical.
But story with MS is different as per my knowledge which leads me to pursue my interest through MS.
@Shashank Moghe • 03 Mar, 2015 See, M.Tech from an IIT is good, though the B.Tech program at the IITs is way better than their M.Tech (This is what I heard).

MS in Germany is not as expensive as the USA, but on the downside, it helps a lot if you know German. Although the course you will apply to is taught is English, after you graduate, German will become necessary for you, on some level. On the upside, Germany is the Holy Grail of Mechanical Engineering, especially Automotive/Aeronautical/Aerospace. I myself work in a German automotive company, so I know how much of a stronghold Germany has in the sector.

The USA, on the other hand has a lot of variety when it comes to industry. Now this, I am speaking from personal experience: The USA MS programs are some of the best in the world and the general mindset about education and research is delightful. It is pure joy studying here. I did not want to graduate (and get to a routine job). I wanted to stay in the university, it was a place of unlimited opportunities! Imagine being surrounded by experts in any field of engineering and having the opportunity to study whatever you like and the infrastructure to do research in whatever you love! In short, learning is pure joy here, IF you enjoy learning. If you only want to work and earn in $$ or Euros, well a lot of people come here for that too and accomplish the same.

The point is, just like you, I never evaluated Germany as an option and focused completely on USA applications, only to realize a bit later that Germany could have been a cheaper and as good option. But you do not need to repeat the same mistakes!

I would suggest research on some good universities both in Germany and USA. Also Look at Lund University (Sweden) and TU Delft (Netherlands), these are great universities for Mechanical. That is about as much help I am providing in university short-listing, because these universities are never researched about since they are outside of Germany/USA. Excellent choices nonetheless.
@Abhiraj10 • 03 Mar, 2015 @Shashank Moghe
Thank you soo much for such a detailed knowledge.
i dont have any job experience nor any internship in automobile company.
do these thing going to affect admission in any good universities?
@Shashank Moghe • 03 Mar, 2015 Work experience helps, but a lot of students come as freshers. That is not a restricting factor at all. Which field in ME do you want to pursue MS in?
@Abhiraj10 • 03 Mar, 2015 I am stuck between MS in automobile and MS in production/manufacturing.
@Shashank Moghe • 03 Mar, 2015 Very broad fields. Try coming to a conclusion first. After that you can begin researching universities.
@Abhiraj10 • 03 Mar, 2015 MS in automobile.
@Shashank Moghe • 03 Mar, 2015 It cannot take just 12 minutes to come to a conclusion as big as that. You are talking about the rest of your life/career. Take some more time, research about both the fields, use the internet, then make a wise decision. Don't be in a hurry, we are all here, on CE. Nobody is going anywhere.
@Abhiraj10 • 03 Mar, 2015 thank you sir..
will do some research and be back here.
@Shashank Moghe • 03 Mar, 2015 No Sir, please. I am old, but not as much as you think 😁
@Abhiraj10 • 03 Mar, 2015 yeah but still u r in other sense.. 😁
@Shashank Moghe • 03 Mar, 2015 Make sure you use resources to the fullest extent. Use Edulix, visit universities' websites that are good in automobiles/production and look in their research section (look at individual professors' pages for their research) and then make comparative notes. Ask here on CE if you need any help or get stuck somewhere.
@Abhiraj10 • 03 Mar, 2015 • 1 like surely i will. and will be in contact with CE.
thank you. 😀

Hi! @ISHJ you should first start preparing for the GRE and ILETS exams. In the meantime, you can start searching for universities in Germany which provide automobile courses. Check for sites like Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst - DAAD - Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst , www.topuniversities.com , which give you a review of these univs.

Universities will have a list of courses, which you can go through and find the best one that suits your interest. You can always find a student mentor to the university on mentorbuddy.in/edu

Hi! @N.K.V what would you like to know in particular ?
@N.K.V • 19 Oct, 2015 sir i have found a university named, Hochschule Esslinger University of applied science. The course under this univ. i want to do is MS in Automotive Systems in Vehicle Dynamics. I had a look on there site , they r nt asking for any GRE or TOEFL score. Can you plss cnfrm me tht is it true and what r motivation letters they r asking for. Also tht the LOR must be frm the profesers or HOD only or it can be from a company or industry i hav done internship during my training period.
@Himanshu dhol • 22 Nov, 2015 Are the above listed universities require any German language certification level.
@Abhijeet Khandagale • 22 Nov, 2015 Hey @N.K.V and @Himanshu dhol sorry for the delay in reply. I just checked this link - Required documents

You can check the links in the "How to Apply" section and you will find the entire information there. TL;DR - They need a TOEFL above 90 and German Language Proficiency A2. Also, you can LOR from your your supervisor at your internship location and also from your college.

Let me know if I can help any further.
@akakash • 23 Nov, 2015 @Shashank Moghe i saw the conversations my querie is whether GRE IS necessary to do MS In germany(is GRE is for only US based or for the whole world)

@Shashank Moghe i saw the conversations my querie is whether GRE IS necessary to do MS In germany(is GRE is for only US based or for the whole world)
Well, I have absolutely no idea if GRE is necessary for all universities in Germany. The best way to know is to visit the university's admissions page and check for application "requirements".

Germany supports free education, so you don't incurr any tuition fees as such. Only your living, books etc expenses are on you. Also there are plenty of funding opportunities for Indian students, all you need is a good network and updated information about them. MentorBuddy has a network of students in Germany who can help you regarding that.

Hi Vaibhav!
I am a little unsure about the Bachelors degree in Germany. The courses are mostly in English, but you need to have a certain level of German language proficiency. I can talk to a few seniors in German universities and let you know details about it.
@Vinay Mishra • 19 Jan, 2020 • 2 likes

Here's a recently updated list of all the top colleges for MS in Automobile/Automotive engineering in Germany:

1) SRH Berlin University of applied science.

2) Graduate school- Hochschule Esslingen.

3) Chemnitz University of technology.

4) The University of Kaiserslautern.

5) International studies in Engineering. 

Who's eligible: 

(1) You should have a bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering or related stream from a reputed University.

(2) You should have a basic knowledge of subjects like Mathematics, Fluids, Mechanics, Physics, Thermodynamics, and automotive engineering.

(3) You must be proficient in the English language.

Entrances:

You also need an entrance exam score to be eligible for admission to the top universities of Germany.

The main entrance's scores that are accepted by top Universities are GRE, TOEFL, and IELTS.

Admission Requirements/Documents:

1) Recognized Bachelor's Degree.

2) Proof of language proficiency.

3) Copy of GRE or any other entrance score.

4) Experience proof. (If any)

5) Letter of reference. (From your bachelor's degree college)

6) Letter of Motivation(Cover letter)

7) CV and a color photo of yourself.

Before applying I advise you to once cross-check if any documents are missing. If you miss anything, It is hardly that the admission committees will make an exemption.

Most German universities run a joint online platform known as UniAssist. This platform is an intermediary medium between you and your university. To apply through it you have to create a personal account, choose your favorite program and submit your documents either in PDF or JPG format. A few days after your application, you're going to receive an email confirming that your application has been successfully collected.

After all, you should also have to apply for the student's visa.

Best of luck! 

You can ask for any further queries.

I hope it helps!
