In the first part (Top universities in Germany for Mechanical engineers – Part 1), you would have seen the Top 5 universities in Germany. Here we are going to explore another five universities that are recommended for mechanical engineers. If you are planning to use this information as a guide to select a university for your higher studies, then I would recommend that you go through the course pages of these universities as well so that you can get an idea about the syllabus as well.

University of Stuttgart:

The research at Stuttgart is highly interdisciplinary. It is the university’s mission to transcend department boundaries in terms of research. Several departments come together to work on projects that would benefit the society. Located in a region of economic strength, Stuttgart enjoys the highest research funding among German universities. Annual funding reaches as high as 250 million euros and this shows how much the university is the powerhouse for industry, national and industrial researches. Also the funding ensures excellent research facilities, including Europe’s most powerful supercomputer. Additional funding means opportunities to work with professors as Research Assistants on their projects.

The figures mentioned here about the employment stats are estimates and not the actual numbers. The companies I mentioned here are not the complete list either, but only a selective few. The sole intention of putting these facts was to give you a rough idea that would help you zero down on a good university.
