Yocket Virtual Fair
Biggest US University Fair for Fall & Spring 2020
Established in 1991, The Brandenburg University of Technology Cottbus- Senftenberg is the top technical university in Brandenburg, Germany. Located in Cottbus, in English it is often called Technical University of Cottbus or TU Cottbus. As per the census of 2012 the University had 112 professors, 594 academic staff and 6,972 students, of which 1,234 were of foreign origin from 89 nations. As of today the total enrollment is of 9,000 students which is a pretty good number as compared to the age and locality of the university.
German language eligibility:-
The university has mentioned that even though German language is not a compulsion a student still must know bits and pieces of it. Professors who belong to the locality find it difficult to communicate in a good vocab of English so you might find a mixture of language. Eventually, learning a bit of German won’t harm you as the courses are not technically in German language.
Entrance on the basis of exam is not a common thing in German. BTU does not conduct any kind of specific exams for their under-graduate programs yet for masters one might have to go through an entrance test.
*Average tuition fee is only an indicator of the estimate annual cost for Arts courses at BTU Cottbus. Course specific tuition fee may vary and it's best to refer to the university's [official website]. An estimate of the average tuition fee at Brandenburg University of Technology in Indian Rupees is INR 0 as of 18 Oct 2019.
Cottbus, a city or shall we rather call it a town which has experienced great historic incidences but preserved very few. Cottbus was always on the sidelines because it is referred as the country side of Berlin. There are a few places to hangout like the Branitz Park and handful of bars and cafes in town, but you wouldn’t find a place full of crowd cheering to the top of their voice. Cottbus is rather a calm place and a perfect atmosphere to study at.
The University is separated into 4 faculties each of them having a focus on certain study and research areas. Each faculty is further subdivided into departments (Institute). Apart from this the university is established on a pretty big area and has mesmerizing modern infrastructure. The modern university library will sure make you feel like a Tron set-up and everything in it is modernly beautiful.
The cost of living on the accommodations given by the university can range 3,000-4,000 US$ which is an average expenditure considering the not-so expensive life of German towns.
Climate of Cottbus is cold and itchy at times. The months June, July, August and September have a nice average temperature though. On an average the warmest month is July and the coolest month is January which may lead to tough living conditions. July is the wettest month while February is the driest one. The climate is not that extreme, only the problem is the winters.
We used the term ‘modern’ quite a few times, the reason being that this university works on a basic fundament of ‘modernism’ that is new technologies and methods. The university’s faculty has an altogether different way of teaching their students which differs from subject to subject. Every faculty is unique in its teaching ways for which they are trained after being recruited. The university has one of the best faculties and students are happy with their response to doubts and problems.
Financial aids do not seem like BTU’s way of gathering students. The university does not promote their admissions through any discount on fees program, it does have some aids for under-privileged and pure Germans but there are no specific scholarships that are conducted during admissions.
It is difficult to find a pass-out to know about his experience from BTU as they are busy in a MNC or rather a bigger firm. 60% of the graduates are happy with their education at BTU and they agree that the in-campus placement has helped them get a good job. The university undoubtedly has good contacts for which they are renowned throughout Germany. Out of those 60% satisfied graduates 90% of them have got the job they always desired and wish to work at the same firm all their life. So over all the university has good contacts and surely helps one in their specific career.
BTU is pretty much of a good university especially with a good faculty base the university is a thumb up on general basis. The only problem is that if you wishing to have a blast in your college life, then this place are not that happening in fact technology courses are not that happening. German language can be a problem for an outsider, but a six month German language course prior to the admissions can help you get through the degree from BTU. Else the school and campus is pretty great and faculty is good too. The studies are extensive but technology works on intensive work.
We would love to hear your experience and share it with the community
