Top ratings for engineering courses at the University of Magdeburg
The study conditions in mechanical engineering, process engineering, chemical engineering, biological engineering and educational science at the Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg have been awarded top ratings in the latest CHE ranking by the German Centre for University Development (Centrum für Hochschulentwicklung).
In terms of course organisation, overall course duration and professional level links, mechanical engineering scored very highly. Process engineering and chemical engineering also scored highly in terms of practical relevance. The bachelor's course in bio-systems technology made it into the leading group in terms of overall course duration.
The course in educational science at the University of Magdeburg was awarded a green point for its teaching offer which was assessed as an excellent course of study on the basis of a traffic light system. It also received a top rating for the links between students and the world of professional work.
"We are very pleased about our excellent ratings achieved by the engineering courses that we offer," highlighted the president of the University, Prof. Dr. Eng. Jens Strackeljan. "The traffic light system in the CHE ranking provides prospective students with a quick, initial impression of our excellence. There clearly remain areas in which we could improve, however. The newly designed portal of rankings also contains plenty of further information on our courses that extends beyond the colour orientation. To gain a complete picture of the good and very good study conditions at the University of Magdeburg, however, I recommend all prospective students to attend our study information day, the "campusdayte" on 21st May 2016.”
The CHE ranking of universities is the most comprehensive and detailed ranking in the German-speaking world. The Centre for University Development (CHE) assessed over 300 universities and colleges of higher education. In addition to the courses, teaching and research, the ranking also includes the students' ratings of the study conditions at their university.
Every year one third of the courses are re-assessed: This year it was the subjects of architecture, civil and environmental engineering, applied natural sciences, electrical engineering, information technology, mechanical engineering, material technology/material sciences, biological engineering, chemical engineering, process engineering, mechatronics, chemistry, biology, psychology, German studies, English/American studies, educational sciences and studies of the Latin languages.
