Are you an aspiring engineer? You might want to consider studying engineering in Germany.

German healthcare company B.Braun is offering Malaysian students the chance to study engineering in Germany via the B.Braun Scholarship programme.

It will allow eligible candidates the opportunity of a lifetime to study at one of the country’s renowned institutions: the University of Applied Sciences Ravensburg-Weingarten.

Why study engineering in Germany?

Did you know that besides its picturesque landmarks, vibrant culture, rich history and stunning architecture, Germany has maintained a long-standing tradition of being at the forefront of technological innovation?

It leads the innovation sector in the highly coveted Global Competitiveness Report in 2018, published by the World Economic Forum.

According to reports, Germany ranks third among the world’s market leaders in machinery and plant engineering, and is also home to some of the best engineering schools in the world.

The country is also a reputable car maker — just think of brands such as Porsche, BMW, Volkswagen, Mercedes-Benz and Audi that have become household names across many countries.
Studying in Germany may also provide a gateway for international students to secure residency in the EU, as German courses are accredited and internationally recognised.
